High Performance Rugby Pitch Surfaces
In sports facilities and grounds around the UK, well-maintained pitches form a central focus during games. Apart from ensuring player safety and performance, the condition of a rugby field is one of the first things that spectators and supporters notice. For many, its appearance is a distinguishing feature of a successful club.
Unquestionably, however, regular play exacts its toll on pitches and renovation becomes necessary after a few seasons. Help is at hand, however.

Notably, the description all-weather pitch usually refers to a porous upper layer that allows water to drain away readily. Nonetheless, icy conditions and heavy snow will still prevent match play. For this reason, we tend to prefer the term all-year-round to describe rugby pitches with high-performance surfaces.
During the winter months, it is not uncommon for match fixtures to go ahead in adverse weather conditions. Consequently, pitches should be able to withstand the rigours of scrums and tackles without undue deterioration.
Naturally, while players appreciate a high-performance and non-slip pitch surface, club management and accountants will want maximum availability, straightforward maintenance and low operating costs. Fortunately, the latest rugby pitches offer these advantages, along with excellent resistance to studs. Thus, they deliver a healthy return on investment.
