Frequently Asked Questions

As well as offering a roll and green speed consistent with a natural grass bowling green, our synthetic bowling surfaces also benefit from significantly lower maintenance costs. This realistic experience is enhanced by our surface’s non-directional pile and specialist bowls underlay, which has helped our bowling green surfaces to achieve World Bowls approval.

All of our artificial woven and needlepunch bowling greens are made at our factory in West Yorkshire. Our surfaces contain no infill, so they combine consistent ball roll with easy maintenance.

The main considerations are:

  • Surface – We will discuss your requirements with you and help you make an informed decision between a woven or needlepunch surface.
  • Maintenance – Artificial bowling greens are significantly cheaper to maintain than natural greens. We can advise you on the maintenance programme you need in order to keep your playing surface in great condition.
  • Cost – Budget will of course be a key consideration. With our range of playing surfaces, we can give you a number of different options to choose from 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.

Our surfaces are all manufactured in the UK and we install them right across the country. Many have even been installed in other parts of the world. Here are some more reasons why you should consider working with us:

  • Experience – We have been installing sport and play surfaces since 1991, and our parent company National Floorcoverings dates back to 1873.
  • Quality – We manufacture all our own surfaces and are ISO9001 and ISO14001 accredited.
  • Accredited – Our bowling green surfaces have World Bowls approval.
  • UV Stable – To ensure the longevity of our greens, we use the highest UV Stabiliser in our fibres to minimise the effects of exposure to UV.
  • Peace of Mind – All our synthetic bowling greens are backed by a minimum 5-Year Warranty.

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.
