Top 5 Reasons To Use Artificial Turf For Sports

Why Sports Teams Need Artificial TurfAs a sports enthusiast, you not only enjoy watching others play, but you also enjoy engaging in them yourself. It doesn’t matter what type of sport you enjoy playing. The field that you use is probably covered in grass.

While you may enjoy playing sports, this grass is the one thing you don’t enjoy. Throughout your time as an athlete, you’ve probably seen many people (maybe even yourself) get injured by playing on a grass surface. Now you find yourself wondering if you can do anything about it.

The answer to your question is artificial turf. However, you may not realize that there are many reasons why this answer is the one for which you’ve been searching. Take a moment to check some of these reasons out here.

Why Sports Teams Need Artificial Turf

We’ve already touched on the fact that many athletes have become injured by playing on grass. However, this is only one of the many reasons you should consider playing on artificial turf instead. Some of the other reasons include:

  • Low maintenance: It can be pretty expensive to maintain a large sports complex (watering, cleaning, mowing, trimming, and fertilizing) throughout the year, but it’s much less expensive when you’re using synthetic turf. This turf only requires occasional brushing and rinsing.
  • Weatherproof: You’ll be able to play sports in any weather since this turf doesn’t need the sun to help it grow, and it won’t become muddy in the snow or rain. Since this makes the turf weatherproof, athletes will enjoy more playing time on a safe surface, even, and stable. This environment means that they won’t have to worry about being unable to play or injured when they do.
  • Artificial turf endures intense use and offers higher playability: Even after a high-foot-traffic sports session, this turf will still look great. Unlike natural grass fields, you can use these playing fields much more frequently. You can even use them for more than 500 hours of continuous playtime. This “playing time” means that there’s no need for downtime between sporting matches or hosting various types of events.
  • It’s environmentally friendly: Synthetic turf doesn’t require gallons of water each year. Instead, it’s typically made from recycled materials that don’t require the use of pesticides, fertilizers, or lawnmowers. Therefore, this turf is better for the environment.
