Sports Pitch Maintenance
Maximising the potential of your sports surfaces
As with all of our work, we are meticulous when preparing sports pitches. We understand the importance of safety and durability of each sports surface and our aim is to maximise its potential. Our experienced staff routinely mow, line mark (using GPS) and maintain football, rugby, hockey, cricket and synthetic pitches, as well as athletics tracks and fields for sports clubs, local councils and to the education sector.
Health and safety of pupils, staff, customers, Excite Solutions employees and the general public is a priority to us. Our staff have DBS clearance, pre employment and right to works checks. We are ISO 9001 certified, with staff NPTC, LANTRA, IOSH, ROSPA and safeguarding trained; we can assure you that we provide safe, efficient, quality services that will surpass the needs of your requirements.

Undoubtably one of the most important aspects of pitch care is mowing, not only to keep the appearance of the pitch looking great, it encourages grass growth and fair play. We have a variety of lawn mowers in our fleet from our 14ft wide Ransomes gang mower – cutting up to 10 acres in 1 hour to Stihl battery operated walk-behind mower, meaning we can efficiently maintain any areas of grass whilst maximising the return from your budget.
WINTER AND SUMMER SPORTS LINE MARKING
Our fully automated line marker works off GPS to accurately mark out multiple summer and winter pitches and tracks. The robot marks out a 400m running track in 1 hour 45 minutes – something that would conventionally take two employees one day to complete, therefore it greatly reduces the risk of the customer being let down due to lack of staffing capacity during the busy season. Human error is common when line marking which the robot eradicates, we can also plot our customers requirements on a Samsung tablet and show them how it will look on their field before putting any paint to grass, giving them peace of mind that the lines will always be marked correctly.
- Training grids
- Football, rugby, hockey and rounders pitches
- Shot put, javelin and discus areas
- 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m 1200m 8 lane athletics tracks
- Various shapes.
ARTIFICAL PITCH MAINTENANCE
Artificial pitches such as 3G, MUGA and hard surfaces are ideal for all year use especially during Autumn and Winter. However, over time they inevitably become worn affecting performance and safety. Therefore, regular maintenance of these surfaces is an essential effective long term cost-saving solution to retaining the quality of your pitch. Using our oscillating brush we sweep both hard and synthetic pitches; removing debris, weeds and moss ensuring it continues to perform as required and remains safe.
