Artificial Turf for Sports

Artificial turf provides a high performance sports playing surface. Several sport's governing bodies including the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) and International Hockey Federation (FIH) promote the use of artificial turf for professional match play. For many teams, artificial turf is often the preferred solution. GreenFields offer a sports turf system for most major sport disciplines.

Popular applications for synthetic grass include football pitches, rugby pitches, hockey fields, baseball fields, lawn tennis courts, bowling greens and golf putting greens.

Artificial grass became widely recognised in 1965 when AstroTurf was installed at the Astrodome in Houston, Texas. Soon after, many sports teams played on artificial turf for professional matches. This first generation of artificial turf was met with criticism due to an increased risk of player injury and many teams reverted back to natural grass. Now forty years later, artificial turf has been developed almost beyond recognition into an outstanding sports product. The soft texture of GreenFields sports turf is comparable to real grass and the cushioned underlay provides excellent player comfort and safety.
