Ensuring Player Safety with Artificial 3G Rugby Pitches

In recent years, the utilization of artificial rugby pitches has been on the rise, owing to their numerous advantages over natural grass pitches. These surfaces not only possess superior durability, enabling more rugby to be played, but also provide a safer playing environment, which can effectively prevent player injuries. Player safety is a requirement not an option, and a World Rugby tested pitch guarantees this.

Artificial rugby pitches commonly belong to the third-generation (3G) synthetic turf surfaces, filled with both sand and performance infill, with longer grass fibers that typically have a height of 60mm or greater. Currently, 3G rugby pitches are the only type of artificial grass rugby pitch that is accepted by both World Rugby and RFU.

Discover the Top Advantages of Artificial Rugby Pitches

Increased usage and revenue

An artificial rugby pitch is a smart investment for rugby clubs or schools seeking a reliable and durable playing surface that can handle frequent and intense usage. With at least 30 hours of playing time per week, players have more time to train, improve their skills, and enhance their performance on the field. Moreover, the versatility of an artificial pitch allows clubs to organize more events, which not only increases revenue but also promotes the sport and attracts more players and spectators.

Top safety

Artificial grass provides a safe and fast playing surface with high shock absorption and good energy restitution, reducing the risk of injury during contact sports like rugby. Additionally, artificial pitches are better suited to extreme weather conditions, such as heavy rainfall, snow or freezing weather, and maintain a consistent surface throughout the playing season, guaranteeing player safety and eliminating any potential hazards.

Less but more specific maintenance

Artificial rugby pitches offer a significant advantage in terms of maintenance requirements. Unlike natural grass pitches, which need constant attention to remain in good condition, synthetic turf pitches require far less maintenance and can be used year-round. The upkeep for artificial pitches is more straightforward and less time-consuming, enabling clubs to save time and money. A simple maintenance schedule of regular grooming, brushing, and infill management can maintain a high-performing playing surface.

Better performance

Synthetic turf has revolutionized the way rugby is played. The performance infill of synthetic surfaces allow for a roll and bounce of the ball just as if it were on natural grass. Unlike poorly maintained natural grass pitches that can quickly develop lumps, bumps, and holes, artificial rugby pitches are far more durable and can retain their performance standards for hundreds of hours of use. With better performance, rugby players can have a competitive edge, allowing them to play at their best.
