Always Looking For New Ideas

60 tonnes per pitch is a good start. Get a contractor to spread it for you, then drag mat it level.

Ain't got a clue re price. Used to be £20 per tonne...

Curiosity & Obsession seems to be the way

Derrick, if you can find out what sand, if any, was used in the construction of the pitches, compatibility with this should be your highest priority on sand source/grade and depending where you are located in UK SPORT grade sand can range from between £16-30.00 ish delivered only depending on haulage costs.
