Young hockey player on artificial grass pitch

A challenge many teachers face is keeping their students engaged and interested during lessons, especially for subjects such as PE, where many of the same sports will be played over and over again. This is often because of limited resources, but we at Designs & Lines are here to introduce something new by helping you to set up a pitch for field hockey using Astro Turf-style artificial grass.

Our durable, high-quality synthetic grass turf is ideal for transforming your outdoor space and setting up an area for a whole new sport your students are bound to enjoy. It’ll even be supplied and installed by us at a price that suits your budget.

Get in touch with us today and one of our friendly team members will be on hand to discuss your hockey astro turf requirements.

Our Artificial Grass is Made for Field Hockey

Artificial grass and field hockey go hand in hand. Historically, the game has been played on synthetic turf products since the 1970s, with it being made the mandatory surface for any major competition in 1976. By installing an Astro Turf-like synthetic grass for your new hockey field, you’ll simply be carrying on a fine tradition and ensuring that your students are playing the game just as it should be.

Your first concern will naturally be for the safety of your pupils, which is something our field hockey pitches can provide as well. The synthetic grass turf is coated in silica, which prevents burns to the skin if a person were to slip and fall, and the hard-wearing design of the product means that it cannot easily be kicked apart or hacked away by hockey sticks. This also means less dirt and mud, both on the surface of your field and on your students!

You should also find your maintenance budget reducing, because artificial grass won’t need to be looked after quite as much as the real thing. As our products are all UV protected, they should also never fade, which means your field hockey pitch will stay looking green and healthy all year round.

Our products all come without infill, which makes them the ideal surface for sports facilities and higher levels of competition as well. This is because the field can then be irrigated, allowing for a better assessment of the ball’s rolling behaviour. It also means that players can slide without the risk of injury.
