Fife Council currently plan to construct two 3G sports pitches at the new Madras College.

These pitches are unsuitable for most hockey training and matches.

A 2G pitch would be a better option as it would be suitable for hockey, would mean pupils would not have to travel to the university to play and would be less expensive.

We need a review of this decision by an independent expert. Please agree to review this decision before it is too late.

Why is this important?

Hockey is a popular sport, especially among women and girls.

There are not sufficient 2G pitches to meet demand in east Fife.

2G is cheaper than 3G.

Reasons for signing

  • Hockey is a sport loved by all and this decision is discriminating against all those who could and do enjoy the game. I just don't see why this is even an issue - surely one 2D and one 3D pitch would be the ideals for all?
  • Sports Scotland the PE dept and Scottish hockey all day a 2g pitch required Why does council and rector want to spend approx £40,000 more on a pitch that doesn’t fulfill the requirements ??
  • Flexibility to provide as many kinds of sports as possible to encourage all children to get active
