Frequently Asked Questions

Our netball surfaces are manufactured at our factory in West Yorkshire. The sand infill gives a realistic feel to the surface, which comes with at least a 5-year warranty.

There are many things to consider when installing a netball surface, and the following are some of the more important ones:

  • Surface – For netball, this is a very simple decision, as we have developed a realistic playing surface that is not only great to play on but meets the needs of sports governing bodies.
  • Maintenance – Artificial pitches are generally cheaper to maintain than natural grass pitches. This is especially true of our netball surfaces thanks to the low sand infill. We can advise on exactly the right maintenance plan to keep your surface at its best.
  • Cost – Budget will of course be a key consideration. Whilst we recommend certain extras such as a shockpad, we will give you the options you need in order to meet your budget.

With a global distribution network, Playrite can export their surfaces abroad. To find out more about Playrite’s exporting capabilities, please click here.

Playrite offer a five year manufacturer’s warranty for any defects found in your surface; you must realise the smaller the MUGA the more durable the surface you require. On average a well-used MUGA of an area around 700sqm should last approximately seven years, whereby an area in excess of 3000sqm should last 10 years minimum.

Playrite work with numerous consultants who specialise in the design of dynamic sports bases and by amending a client’s specification slightly, anything can be possible.

Maintenance is an important part aspect with any synthetic surface, not just to enhance the visual aspect of the surface, but also to enable consistent playing performance throughout its life span. Artificial surfaces are cheaper to maintain that natural grass pitches. You must consider the costs involved in providing equipment and labour to maintain your surface against the cost to employ a company to carry out routine maintenance visits every month or quarter – dependent upon your type of surface.

Our needlepunch surfaces are all weather and can be used all year round. Needlepunch is the most durable method and will drain faster than a conventional tufted surface. It is not recommended to remove snow from the surface, however a synthetic surface will generally thaw quicker than hard surfaces such as tarmacadam.
