Line Marking

Wessex Grounds Services have been helping the Jurassic Raptors with their American football pitches for several years and at different locations.  This year was very different as we invited our strategic supplies partner Rigby Taylor to initial mark a pitch using their fantastic robot marker.

This GPS- controlled machine made short work of installing a superb pitch, ready for the Raptors first game.  Bill Heinrich our contact at the Raptors was clearly delighted and stated that it was the best  pitch marking he had seen!

Many thanks to Simon Hughes of Rigby Taylor for installing his first American football pitch in the UK.

We love seeing children have fun safely. Round about’s provide children with increased vestibular stimulation, they can increase development of kinaesthetic awareness and can help children develop strength, balance and co-ordination. Movements like these can be therapeutic to growing children.

It is essential to ensure the surrounding surfaces are safe. If you would like a quotation for your play ground then please contact us on 0300 303 8616.
