Hockey is one of the most popular sports on the PE curriculum, with a lot of schools putting a lot of resources into the sport. There is also lots of buzz around the sport in the Olympics. A huge part of the success of the game is the playing surface.
You should consider talking to us when you’re ready to install astroturf for your hockey pitch.
It’s important to maintain your astroturf hockey pitch. It doesn’t need the same amount of time and resources as maintaining real grass, but it is still important to keep it running well. You should start by always performing a routine check before the pitch is going to be used. Walk around the pitch and look out for any problems that are showing up on the surface. You might notice issues like some of the astroturf starting to tear, or the sand infill gradually being lost over time.
If you don’t find any damage, you still need to make sure to keep the astroturf clean. Use a soft brush on the surface to remove any dirt from the top, and keep it clean to stop dirt from entering the surface of the astroturf. Dirt and other contaminants can end up blocking the porous surface, causing dangerous problems that make the surface less safe for play.
