What should you look for in fencing for Hockey Games?

folder_openSports & Leisure

Hockey is a popular sport around the world and certainly within the UK. Fast-paced and full of action, it is played in many schools, colleges and universities across the land. In addition, many councils will also have public hockey pitches for people to use, and private sports clubs will run hockey teams. One key factor for any hockey pitch is proper sports fencing. This not only keeps the ball in play effectively but keeps intruders off the pitch and the players safe inside.

Before you install hockey fencing, though, you should think carefully about what to look for. To make it a bit easier, we set out some of the key points below.

Bespoke fencing for Hockey Games

It is easy to think that all fencing for sport is designed the same, but this is not true. Hockey is a sport that sees many cannonball style impacts when the ball hits the outside fencing. This could be a real problem if you install sports fencing, which is not designed to stand up to it. Specialist fencing for hockey pitches can also be made in single large panels. This, in turn, helps to avoid injuries that players can pick up on standard fence breaks. Fencing made specifically for the hockey pitch will also use special EPDM inserts to cut down on the noise from the ball on fence impacts.

Looks good

Any sports fencing has to look good and have excellent visual appeal. This will help make people want to play on it and attract people to watch them too. Aesthetically pleasing hockey fencing will also make your grounds look extra professional and smart. Many organisations will opt for woven or welded mesh fencing now as this is super durable and easy on the eye.

Value for money

Any organisation which decides to install fencing like this will be working to a budget. It is, therefore, key to look for fencing which offers value for money. This will ensure that you stick within your allocated budget and do not overspend. Looking for the best value will also enable you to find fencing with the best range of features for the price.
