The Importance of Sports Surface Maintenance

Here at White Line Services, we can’t stress enough the importance of keeping up-to-date with the maintenance of your athletic track and sports courts. In order to ensure your facility is ready for action at all times and to prevent the occurrence of injuries on damaged surfaces, this is what we suggest.

For your athletic track, be sure to keep your track clean. When dirt begins to form, if not deal with, this can cause severe damage if continually used. If during the winter months your track has dirt and moss, this can cause an icy and slippery surface for anyone training on it. The conditions of your track could then worsen and potentially cost you more in the New Year.

We recommend that you get your track and sports courts high pressure cleaned every 2 years to prolong the life of the surface and provide the best conditions for your athletes.

To keep your tracks or sports courts looking their best, you might need to get the lines repainted. White Line Services use extremely durable, top quality paint that is weather resistant and will give you many years of service.

We also offer a surface repair service which involves the eco-friendly removal of moss, dirt using our high pressure aqua- vacuuming machine and the repair of small holes across your surface. By re-texturing and restoring damaged areas will help prevent major maintenance issues.

The benefits of keeping up-to-date with track maintenance means that in the long run you will reduce the overall cost by potentially preventing costly damage to your tracks and sports courts.

Track of the Week: Lee Valley Athletics Centre

Lee Valley is a favourite of ours among the great tracks in the UK. The centre itself holds the largest indoor and outdoor athletic facilities serving London and South East England, making it an important sports site for athletes of all levels. The centre trained gold medallists like Greg Rutherford and Jonnie Peacock for London 2012.


With a unique blue indoor sprint track, you would easily be able to recognise Lee Valley’s indoor track. The indoor track has a capacity to hold 500 spectators to view athletics on their 130m and 60m sprint straights and 200m circular track.

Being the only indoor 200 metre 6 lane track in the whole of the South of England, the facilities are highly respected by athletes in and around London and the South. Recently, White Line Services have carried out work on the 60m sprint part of the track, including remarking and surveying and painting an eighth lane to the 60m track.

The outdoor track offers a 400m, 8 lane track with a 600m bark trail available too. Recently, White Line Services have carried out full depth and top surface level repairs to the outdoor track using IAAF certified materials.
