The existing playing field incorporating a number of pitches was continually water-logged.
There were two football pitches, one rugby pitch and a cricket square.
In designing a consistent cross gradient of 1:70 and installing lateral pipe drains the basic reticulation was in place. Secondary slit drains are planned to follow.
In addition, a turfgrass cricket square and synthetic grass wicket were installed together with cricket nets.
These incorporated three three hard surface practice strips enclosed within the framework duly covered with appropriate netting.
