Sports & Leisure


Whatever the sport, the surface it’s played on is expected to perform all year round, regardless of weather conditions or volume of play. The choice of construction and maintenance materials is critical in achieving this, heavily influencing key factors such as drainage rates and durability.

At Sibelco, we’ll help ensure that your surface is always in peak condition with our wide range of high-performance sands, top dressing and rootzone materials, engineered to your specifications. Whether it’s an existing surface or a new build project, a local authority facility or an international venue, we have the products and knowhow to help you deliver outstanding results.
