In 2012, White Line Services travelled over to Martinique in the French Caribbean, to complete a survey and paint of the Morne Rouge Athletic Track.
In 2014, White Line Services remarked the King Baudouin Stadium in Brussels.
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.

Keeping up-to-date with repair work that’s required on your track is so important. At White Line Services, we offer a maintenance package offering discounted rates to the wash, repairs and remarks of your athletic track. The wash and remark alone should help increase the longevity of your athletic track.
Repairs are always inevitable and part of the wear and tear from athletes but they CAN be prevented in some cases. Tackling them early can help reduce significant costs in the long run.
You can prevent this by keeping the track clean from dirt and grime as much as possible by having your track high-pressure cleaned every year. At the first signs of wear on the track, allow us to come and assess your track to advise the best course of action. This could be either a small respray or a patch repair depending on the extent of the repair.
There are many positives to keeping up to date with the maintenance of your athletic track. For example, a small crack can gradually become a large crevice and will likely become dangerous to your athletes during training.
When a crack appears, the best and most cost effective thing to do is have it repaired as soon as the crack appears.
White Line Services are always happy to chat about any problems on your track and find out the best course of action to increase the longevity of your running track.
This week in the sunshine (and random snow showers), we have been busy marking the Betteshanger Country Park cycle trail with arrows and markings to guide the cyclists round the track.
Betteshanger Country Park, near Deal in East Kent, has a 2-mile tarmac cycle track, leisure paths for cycling and walking and established woodlands, wetlands and reed beds full of wildlife. Betteshanger Country Park is situated on an old coal waste tip, previously known as Betteshanger Colliery.
Since the park first opened in May 2007, it has been a safe off-road park for cyclings, running, walking and mountain biking. The 2-mile cycle trail is divided into three different circuits; a 1.5 km circuit, a 2 kilometre circuit and the full circuit.
Bike hire is available at the track if you would like to go for a spin and check out the scenery (including our line markings!).
Wishing everyone a relaxing bank holiday weekend.
So, the Bill Whistlecroft Athletic Arena, Yeovil, is finally ready for action after the lines have been remarked by our team at White Line Services.
Bill Whistlecroft Athletics Arena, formally known as the Yeovil Athletic Arena, is the only Grade A Athletic Arena in Somerset. This 8 lane synthetic track with field events is home to the Yeovil Olympiads Athletic Club. Renamed in 2014 after Bill Whistlecroft, a local teacher, who sought out athletic talent and inspired and encouraged individuals to try out the sport at whatever level they could. He was an inspiration to the locals and founded the Yeovil Olympiads Athletic Club too.
Here is an action shot of White Line Services at work, taken by the Yeovil Olympiads Athletic Club.
A successful job done, and the Yeovil Athletic team we are sure will be keen that the track is ready to use again.
The David Weir Leisure Centre (which used to be known as Sutton Arena) is named after the British Paralympic wheelchair athlete David Russell Weir. David Russell Weir has won a total of six gold medals dating from 2008 to 2012. Not to mention winning the London Marathon on six different occasions. Born in the London borough of Sutton, it seems apt for a leisure centre and athletic track in Sutton to be named after this sporting superstar.
David Weir Leisure Centre, run by Everyone Active, has both an indoor 6 Lane sprint track and an outdoor 8 Lane 400m track plus Pole Vault, High Jump, Throwing Cage, Javelin, Shot Putt and 2 Jump Pits.
The indoor 60m sprint track provides athletes with the ideal winter training facilities. The track itself is a 60m track with a 22m run off. There is also a pole vault, high jump, throwing cage and 2 jump pitts.
Below you can see our recent repair work to lane 3 of the indoor track which is barely visible now that the repair has been matched to the surrounding green synthetic track surface.
