Artificial Turf for Rugby


Artificial turf pitches for rugby have very similar properties and performance requirements to American Football pitches. While American Football has embraced artificial pitches, it has taken much longer for rugby clubs to adopt artificial solutions for its playing surfaces. Now with the fourth generation of artificial turf, developed through major advancements in technology, the world of rugby is now taking notice.

Rugby, together with American Football, is one of the most physically demanding sports - one that requires a high performance surface and maximum player protection.

Dow’s turf system approach enables professionals to design a surface that meets the specific requirements of the players. This in turn aims to ensure performance is achieved at the highest level in virtually all weather conditions, as well as providing comfort and safety. In addition, rugby players can benefit from a tailored surface that supports speed and enables a quicker change of direction than with a natural grass playing surface.
