SportTop by Abacus Playgrounds Ltd boosts play while reducing spend

 Abacus Playgrounds is set to satisfy the growing needs of sports facilities everywhere – by launching their unique SportTop range, which offers a playing surface to suit almost any sport.

SportTop’s offering includes a polymeric play surface, perfect for multi-use games areas, fit for purpose fencing and specialist floodlighting, as well as soft artificial grass, ideal for sport both indoors and out.

“SportTop is ideal for any sports facility,” enthuses Bill Worthington, Regional Manager for Abacus Playgrounds Ltd.  “Why? Because the diverse range makes it not only suitable, but well matched, for a huge range of sports, both indoors and out. Our surfaces are so durable that maintenance is minimal and play performance continuous, meaning reductions in overall spend.


“For games that require excellent bounce and resilience from a play surface, our polymeric SportTop surface is fantastic, as it can fit any size pitch or enclosure, making it ideal for multi-use games areas. These types of play areas allow many sports to be played in one area, cutting installation and maintenance costs massively. ”


Suitable for use in any size space, SportTop’s continuous polymeric play surfacing offers excellent grip, thus minimising the risk of injury, as well as being porous and fast draining, allowing for play after rain. Importantly, it fulfills Sport England’s MUGA Type 3 and 4 specifications, giving it credibility as well as rugged endurance.


The SportTop artificial grass range benefits from an eight-year manufacturer’s warranty, and its fade resistance, coupled with its extremely low maintenance pile, offers excellent play characteristics in rain or shine, term after term.

Fit for purpose fencing in a choice of long-lasting, UV stable colours complements your surface selection, offering exceptional ball rebound, and strong posts for excellent structural integrity of pitches.

With low glare, excellent spill light control and a choice of reflectors, SportTop’s specialist floodlighting ensures that sports will be played with clarity, accuracy and precision. It enhances play by improving visibility, thus extending the playing hours of your installation.

Schools and facility owners interested in boosting the effectiveness of their sports and play facilities, whilst at the same time cutting maintenance and installation costs, are urged to contact Abacus to discuss how its SportTop range can boost play performance time after time, term after term.
