Sports drainage for stadiums and sporting facilities

Large-scale stadiums, track and field facilities, local sports centres and recreational grounds require sports ground drainage to effectively remove surface water from playing surfaces and pedestrian zones.

The sports drainage systems specified will be determined by the type of application area and the individual requirements of the sports facility. Occasionally, cable management systems and drainage channels for on-site  car parks  will also need to be considered within the overall design.
