Rhyl Rugby Club
Sports and Recreation
After moving to their new residence in Tynewydd Road in 2018, Rhyl Rugby Club have proudly unveiled their new children's playground in memory of former player and coach, John Hardy, who passed away suddenly at the end of 2018.
Rhyl Club members joined forces with John's family and friends to raise funds for the playground project through a variety of activities such as the 3 Peaks Challenge, donations from supporters, club members and local businesses, grant funding, and a dinner hosted by Wales and British & Irish Lions rugby legend Ryan Jones.
The empty grassland outside the club was transformed by playground specialists Creative Play, and features slides, a climbing wall, an inclined walkway, a basket swing and two spring riders, as well as safety flooring. Situated between the pitch and car park, fencing and gates were required to create a safe, enclosed area around the playground
We supplied our Anti-Trap Bow Top fencing to create a boundary around the playground and provide a safe area to allow children to play. Anti-Trap Bow Top fencing is an ideal solution for playgrounds, as it has wide spacing between the hoops, and pale spacing below the top rail at a maximum of 100mm, to stop children from getting their limbs trapped. The RoSPA approved metal fencing is hot dip galvanised, and comes with a 25 year guarantee, providing a low lifetime cost for the club.
The fencing was polyester powder coated in red to match the rugby club colours while providing an attractive and welcoming perimeter . Polyester powder coating provides a bright, glossy finish that will not chip or crack, reducing the risk of injury from sharp edges, and providing a smart appearance for years to come.
To match the fencing, a single leaf gate was also installed to provide access to the playground, and an additional line of fencing was added to prevent children from straying into the car park when leaving the playground.
