Sports Sands

Our experience of specialist sands goes back decades, starting with lignite removal and the production of sports and filter sands.

High spec sands for a range of sports

Our proven sport sands washing equipment is helping to produce quality graded sands for a range of sports, including outdoor, synthetic, and all-weather sports pitches; sands for golf courses, including bunkers and top dressing for greens and fairways; and silica sands that are used widely in equestrian sports for training and racetracks surfaces.  

Sport & leisure applications for silica sands are becoming increasingly popular. Closely graded silica sand, in many cases mixed with organic matter is used in top dressings and root zones for sports surface construction.

Typical applications include:

  • Football & hockey pitches
  • Synthetic 3G & 4G pitches
  • Golf course tees & greens
  • Golf course bunkers
  • Equestrian surfaces
  • Play sands
  • Horticultural applications

Our sport sands washing plants have been employed to supply for some of the most prestigious venues and events in the world in recent years including some of the world's most famous golf courses and race courses:

  • Carnoustie (Scotland) - home of the 2018 British Open
