Artificial turf

The surface is composed of monofilament polyethylene blend fibres. The infill is composed of a bottom layer of coated polyurethane material. The fibres are meant to replicate blades of grass, while the infill and poly shock pad system acts as a cushion. This cushion improves safety and allows players to plant and pivot as if they were playing on a grass field.
