The International Hockey Federation (the world’s governing body) is continually looking for advancements and alternative surfaces, such as synthetic turf, that reduce the dependence on expensive nylon systems. This has led to PP and PE wet fields – both types are already used for international matches.
The area of a hockey pitch is 91.4m long x 55m wide with a 3m run off at the sides and ends. Synthetic Turf Management ensure that the construction of the pitch is built on an “engineered base” with a suitable drainage system and with kick boards to withstand theimpact of the hockey ball.
