Advantages of a Synthetic Grass Surface: –
Synthetic Grass is a soft surface hence less risk of injury…So is much better on the ‘back & ankles’.
Reduces glare by up to 50% and reduces reflected heat by up to 60% (over hard surfaces eg. concrete or bitumen)
Not slippery when wet – start playing immediately after rain
Low maintenance, depending on the “grass” type and quality and can be used for more multi-purpose sports eg. soccer, basket/net ball, hockey, cricket even golf putting…..
We have two different options of Synthetic Grass available from our manufacturing Company.

So… To expand on the Three Major Advantages of our Option 2 product over our competitors….
1. Less sand is required in top part of the surface due to the fact that our surface material is less ” Grippy” BUT at the same time this ethylene product is stronger and hence has longer lasting fibres than normal polypropolene products.
2. It has mould / algae inhibitors in the material and therefore the court must be easier to look after over time.
3. All above means less maintenance over the years both in time and money while looking better and being easier to play on.
