Easigrass™ Sport - Hockey

Rhino Turf




Worldwide hockey is played on synthetic turf. In fact all internationals are played on synthetic surfaces and nearly all school and club matches also. Let’s consider 10 reasons why synthetic turf is right for hockey:

  1. The surface is true, safe and encourages skill
  2. It plays better than any other type of hockey surface
  3. It is available 24/7
  4. It is cost effective hour for hour compared with alternatives
  5. Different types of surface match the requirements of clubs, schools and universities
  6. Under lights it offers evening use, without fear of wearing the surface away
  7. It can be played on in extreme weather conditions (snow is easily cleared)
  8. Although maintenance is required it requires little skill and time spent on a pitch is far less
  9. It is attractive and can be offered with different colour play areas or surrounds
  10. It is allowed in the laws of the game

Getting the right surface and system relies on several key points, including:

  • Choosing a high quality, tested and approved surface
  • Ensuring a shock pad is used under the surface to retain the right play characteristics
  • Only using the best installers, who use the right installation equipment
  • Keeping on top of maintenance to maintain performance
  • Regular performance checks to keep the system playing to its optimum

Easigrass Sport has been passionate about hockey surfaces since the early days and offers a full range of hockey products, from fully synthetic, international level, water based surfaces, high quality sand dressed products to low cost sand filled systems, all tested to FIH standards.
