Case Studies

Jack Grealish

Creating the perfect training conditions for future England football sensations, Venture Play (UK) Limited have installed a 5-a-side multi-use games area at the Solihull primary school at which England star Jack Grealish was a pupil.

Unveiled on 29 November 2022 and featured on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, the school’s previously waterlogged, boggy and swampy school field has been transformed into a vibrant play surface. Where there was previously no suitable surface or space for outdoor play, the children can now enjoy a fully usable and durable games area, free draining and stable under foot - a long way from its boggy muddy past where Grealish would have played.

Former pupil Jack attended the school until the age of 11. He has gone on to achieve Premier League football success for Aston Villa and Manchester City, as well as his now established place in the national side. 27-year-old Grealish currently has 25 caps and 2 England goals under his international career belt and has been an ever-present member of the England team playing at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The pitch was installed over three days in November 2022 by Venture Play. The 4-strong team first created a six-inch raised platform and prepared the surface with 30 tonnes of hardcore to ensure free drainage. Using 100 square metres of Lusso 30mm olive-green artificial grass, the pitch was also finished with white artificial grass line marking. The Venture Play team installed the goal posts and the corner flags, bedecked in the School’s colours.

Venture Plays Dallan Tan said: “This was a great opportunity to transform a muddy field unsuitable for outdoor play into an all-season, all-sports area. Using artificial grass offers the children a clean and safe play environment and provides the school with a hard-wearing, long-lasting, free-draining solution. A real win-win for everyone.”

Headteacher Neil Emery is very pleased with the new pitch and play area which allows the children extensive outdoor play on a safe, clean, durable surface - and maybe the new pitch will open the opportunities for the next Jack Grealish to extend their soccer skills at the School.

Amazon's Green Oasis: A Venture Play Transformation

In the bustling heart of Milton Keynes, a remarkable transformation has taken place. Amazon, a name synonymous with innovation, has once again demonstrated its commitment to employee wellbeing and environmental sustainability. The once dark and uninspiring car park has been reinvented into a vibrant, green "break out" space, all thanks to the vision and expertise of Venture Play (UK).

Green Initiatives
The search for a green solution led Amazon's corporate buyers to Venture Play (UK), known for their cutting-edge, eco-friendly outdoor solutions. The goal was clear: create a space that not only serves as a refreshing oasis for employees but also aligns with Amazon's ethos of sustainability and growth.

ONE-DNA™: A Game-Changing Product
Venture Play (UK) rose to the challenge with their ONE-DNA™ Synthetic Turf, a product that stands out for its exceptional performance, striking visuals, and, most importantly, its fully circular recyclable properties. The installation included a recyclable 25mm foam pad. This ingenious addition ensures a soft underfoot feel, making the space not just visually appealing but also comfortable and safe for Amazon's workforce.

A Commitment to Green Growth
An Amazon spokesperson shared their enthusiasm for the project: “We are thrilled to have discovered a product that aligns seamlessly with our company values. This is more than just a physical transformation; it's a step forward in reducing our carbon footprint while continuing our trajectory of growth.”

Efficient Installation: A Mark of Venture Play (UK)'s Excellence
The installation process was a testament to Venture Play (UK)'s efficiency and commitment to high standards. DallanTan, the Managing Director, highlighted the smooth and swift completion of the project. “The installation was fully completed in just one day, ensuring minimal disruption to Amazon's operations. Working with such a globally recognized brand was an honor, and this project marks the beginning of many more to come.”

Looking Ahead: Nationwide Expansion Plans
Venture Play (UK) Limited is not stopping here. With advanced talks already underway, they plan to roll out similar green spaces nationwide. This project in Milton Keynes is not just a testament to their expertise but a beacon of hope for sustainable corporate practices. As Amazon and Venture Play (UK) show, a little green can go a long way in enhancing employee wellbeing and contributing to a healthier planet.

Bierton School

A ‘combined’ funding effort for Bierton CE Combined School means KS1 and KS2 have new equipment for play and PE.

This primary school in Aylesbury sourced funding for this project from their own PFA, from a charity grant, and from their Sports Premium Funding.

In addition to great value equipment, Venture Play also offered free training for staff at Bierton CE Combined School. These demonstrations have allowed staff to take their knowledge forward so that they can teach each class how to uses their new playground equipment appropriately.

You may be aware that there has been some contention as to the intended use of the PE and Sport Premium, with some schools getting penalised for not going far enough to make long-lasting and valuable additions with the funding.

That’s why Venture Play equipment is particularly popular with schools! Rather than a one-off batch of lessons, the installation of fun equipment is a way of encouraging generation after generation of pupils to get active.
