2016 Overview from White Line Services

2016 has been a fast-paced and exciting year for us, we have been super busy all year round and have only just come up for air now! From Scotland and Ireland to Exeter and Liverpool, we’ve travelled a lot and carried out work we’re very pleased with.

Some of the exciting projects from 2016 include school track washes and remarks such as Radley College and line marking at the Chelsea Academy Football ground.

Radley College Track Wash

The athletic tracks we have worked on this year include Gateshead Stadium, Scotstoun, Ellesmere Port and the Queen Elizabeth Stadium, London.

We’ve also done several indoor sports halls and a number of mini sprint tracks in gyms across the UK.


The work this year on athletic tracks has ranged from repairs and resurfacing work on tracks including Ellesmere Port, washes and remarks and sometimes just simple repairs. We have surveyed and painted new tracks both indoors and outdoors. Nottingham University was an example of one of the indoor tracks surveyed and painted by us this year.


We’ve worked abroad a few times in Holland and Norway with hopes to travel further afield too in 2017.

We are now taking books for the summer of 2017 and the calendar is slowly filling up. We’re looking forward to making lots more happy customers this year and wish you all a Happy New Year.

Mini Indoor Tracks across the UK

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!

Event Plates and Running Track Kerb

White Line Services doesn’t just paint white lines, along with track and sports hall maintenance and washing, we also offer a whole range of other services including certifying your athletic track and also providing track kerbing and event plates.

If you need custom made stainless steel event plates, White Line Services supply and install colour-coded stainless steel identity plates for Athletic Tracks all across the UK. These plates highlight the start and finish lines, changeover points and hurdles around the running track. Now shipping to America, we package and ship the plates all across the UK and America should you wish to install them yourself.

White Line Services also supply UPVC running track kerbing. The great advantage for using our UPVC kerbing is that there is no scrap value to the kerbing; therefore it’s less likely to be stolen. The white PVC kerbing looks smart around the inner lane of your athletic track and won’t fade in the sunlight, leaving a clean white kerb around the track for years to come.

Our Last Job Of 2015: Leytonstone

Between Christmas and New Year, the team at White Line Services have been out and about helping to solve the issue of a very slippery timber sports court at Leytonstone Community Sports Centre. The flooring was too slippery that the school were unable to use their facilities to host basketball competitions.

We spent the week chemically cleaning the surface then touching up and repainting any damaged lines. Following this, two coats of sports floor sealer were applied to the surface, creating a fully-functional, non-slip surface ready for the New Year.


The new non-slip surface should now be problem and maintenance free for the next few years and Leytonstone school are looking forward to a busy year hosting plenty of sporting competitions.

Here at White Line Services, we are always happy to give advice about your sports surfaces. If like Leytonstone School, you have a slippery and potentially dangerous sports surface that requires some maintenance, simply give us a call or email us at office@white-line-services.com for a free quotation.
