Last week at the University of Nottingham, we marked lines and events on an indoor blue Mondo surface.
The 6 lane track will be up and ready for the Nottingham University students to use and enjoy over the next few weeks.
To all the Chelsea fans out there (including one of our WLS workers), we were excited to be asked to survey and paint at the Chelsea ground this week. The Cobham Training Centre is the training ground of Chelsea Football Club located in Cobham, Surrey.
The training club now has a shiney new 2 lane 70 m sprint track that runs parallel to the outdoor pitch and the indoor hall.
While the men were surveying and painting the sprint track, some of the youngsters from the team were out training on the field.
We’re abroad again and this time we’re line marking in Norway.
This week, we are working on 2 tracks in Norway. The first is a 200m track near Drammen, Norway. The track is at Veitvet Skole located outside of Oslo, with fitness equipment on the inside of the track.
After 3 days, the first track is complete, as you can see in the image below.
Now, onto the second slightly smaller track, 4 lane 60m sprint track with a long jump.
Here is Visar Jusufi, setting up ready to begin painting.
And here is the complete track.
Last job starting tomorrow, lets hope the sun shines for us!
This week, we’ve been eagerly getting the Queen Elizabeth Stadium at the Olympic Park ready for the Muller Anniversary Games.
Bolt will be among some of the athletes competing at the Muller Anniversary Games on the 22nd, where he will be racing at the IAAF Diamond League meeting. Following the IAAF Diamond League, is the IPC Athletics Grand Prix Final, taking place on the 23rd.
We always feel honoured when the Olympic Park ask us to wash the track, and have worked there several times over the last few years, including painting during the Olympic 2012 games.
This last week, we’ve been cleaning the full-sized track using our specialist high-pressure machines. This involved a couple of extra long days from the team, in order to get the track up to standard for the up and coming 2 day events. Being one of the world’s biggest athletic events with global athletes competing on the field and track, we are glad the clean is now complete and the track is ready and waiting for a couple of world records to be broken on…hopefully!

Last week at the Gateshead International Stadium, Tyne and Wear, White Line Services pressure washed the sprint track and full sized athletic track ahead of the ESAA Track and Field Championships.
The Gateshead International Stadium has an 11,750 seater stadium, ideal for spectators at International Athletic events and other sporting events including football.
Here is a mid-clean shot where the team have currently cleaned a lane width at a time, leaving no overlap marks.
Here is our before and after pictures from the track wash. It’s nice to see how smart the track looks and how nicely a simple track wash can brighten up your track.
We are really pleased with the results and left Gateshead event ready for the ESAA National Championships on 8th and 9th July 2016.
Over the last few weeks, we’ve been surveying and painting a series of mini indoor tracks.
We are pleased to have been asked to paint these various tracks in a number of gyms across the country. So far, we’ve painted these mostly in the north of the UK.
The purpose of these tracks is for gym-goers to warm up and cool down on. It gives them a space to stretch their legs between circuits or simply sit on the verge of astroturf in the centre of the track and relax.
We think the concept is great and more gyms should have areas like this. Plus they look smart too!
White Line Services International Limited are a 3 generations family run business, who have travelled to over 60 countries across the world, painting athletic tracks.
Over the years, we have visited the Caribbean, Mexico, Africa, Australia, the list goes on.
Here is a snapshot of some of the great work we have been involved in over the last 38 years.
In September 2002, we were in Salt Lake City, Utah, surveying and painting the indoor track ready for the 2002 Winter Olympics.
In 2004, we were over in Mexico painting the running track in Puerto Vallarta. This was the image taken while paragliding over the city.
In 2009, White Line Services travelled to Bolivia in Central South America, where they surveyed and painted a new track in Sucre.
Over in the United Arab Emirates, in 2011, we surveyed a new track in Dubai. Battling the sun and sand, but always a fun experience.
Here’s a view of the track we did in Gibraltar in 2011. With sea views, where could be better than Gibraltar for athletics.
More recently we have spent a lot of time in Europe, namely Sweden, Poland, Norway and Belgium. It was only last week we returned from washing and remarking over in Tilbury, Holland.
Here is the Tilbury track in Holland last week. This image is after the track wash but before the new lines were put down.
Whilst the weather is holding us back today, even in Holland, we are happy with the work we’ve done so far.
The Tilburg track in Holland, is an all blue athletic track located in the city of Tilburg. They asked us to venture over to Holland to give their track some TLC with a full track wash and remark. Over the last week, we have been cleaning the track using our specialist track cleaning machine, and have now began remarking.
This image is taken after the track wash but before the remarking. We are currently in the process of remarking, in between the showers of rain. The perks of a job that relies solely on good weather- right?
Keepmoat Stadium is home to the prestigious sporting teams – Doncaster Rugby League FC, Doncaster Rovers Belles and Doncaster Rovers. The stadium has undergone a £32 million transformation to become one of Yorkshire’s premier event locations. Alongside the stadium, is the athletic track, used by the Doncaster Athletic Club.
We love the track and have worked there for many years on the maintenance of their track. Last year, White Line Services carried out repairs then remarked the track.
This year, White Line Services carried out different repairs then resprayed and remarked. The end result shown in the image below.
We are always happy to walk away leaving a happy customer with a newly maintained athletic track.
