I saw red ash football pitches for the first time when I moved to Glasgow. They are supposed to be an alternative to the Scottish weather so amateur football teams can use them all year round. During my research I found only negative opinions, emphasizing how bad and unsafe they are for playing football, 'My old primary school had one of these, absolutely horrible to play on in any condition. If it rained at all the whole thing would immediately flood, if it was dry as soon as the wind blew it was like trying to play in sandstorm.' Nowadays, most people use them for dog walking. In my project I got closer to the surface of pitches as well as the environment around them.
