13 Apr Why Artificial Grass Fields Have Become The Standard For Field Hockey
While many sports are finding artificial grass fields to be a great alternative to natural grass, it is field hockey that has embraced this surface with enthusiasm.
And it makes sense; after all, field hockey play requires a level, flat surface upon which a ball can roll, which is precisely what turf offers. If your sod field is full of divots or dry patches, you’re ruining your players’ experience and leaving room for potential injury. Because artificial grass is designed to be flat, uniform, and weather-resistant, it’s ideal for field hockey players to perform their best at any time of year.
As if that’s not enough of a reason on its own, these are three more contributors to why field hockey has selected turf fields as a preferred playing surface.
With a consistent surface, field hockey players can move balls faster down the field, no matter what level of play is at hand. Help players showcase their abilities and increase their fans’ enjoyment.
Because field hockey is a fast sport, players need to have the right footing to prevent injury. With artificial turf, your field won’t have muddy spots that threaten to cause a slip or twisted knee, as a drainage layer will make sure that water passes through quickly. And because it dries so fast, your field will be usable shortly after the rain stops falling.
Field hockey can also be an incredibly dangerous sport, and your players will likely see their fair share of falls. If you want to reduce the risk of serious injuries, an artificial turf field can be structured to cushion and support heads and joints while still providing a firm playing surface.
