      Testimonial from Joe Meakin-Scott, Stadium Operations Manager, Exeter Chiefs

    “Rhino Play covered the area in front of the players’ tunnel within the Sandy Park stadium with a black wet pour EPDM, an area that the Chiefs’ players walk across every day of the week to access the pitch for training and games. The Club considered the previous tarmac surface as inappropriate when players were warming up or down in the area, especially when wearing studs and the area was rapidly getting worn.

    Rhino Play were chosen to undertake the work because they were a local company that demonstrated their professionalism and problem solving ability at every opportunity, along with a willingness to work with us to achieve the required outcome.

    Rhino Play are a company Exeter Rugby Club would be keen to work with again and would recommend to any sports arena – the entire install went extremely smoothly and we’ve ended up with an excellent surface for the team and spectators alike, a suitable entrance on to the pitch for the Premiership winning team.”
