Advantages of an Artificial Hockey Pitch


Our artificial hockey pitches ensure a reliable playing experience no matter the weather. The construction of our surfaces allow for water to drain efficiently, so even after rain, a pitch can recover quickly.  This ensures players can train and compete consistently with minimal disruptions.


Playrite’s hockey surfaces are designed to mimic the qualities of natural grass, to provide a true accurate ball roll, consistent ball bounce, and anticipate player movement. These qualities can lead to improved performance as players can optimise their focus on technique on a more consistent basis.


Natural grass surfaces can become uneven and worn down over time, leading to potential safety hazards for players. With artificial pitches, the surface remains consistent and durable, providing a safer playing environment for athletes. The initial and ongoing costs involved with maintaining natural grass pitches is considerably higher, compared to thecosts involved for an artificial surface. saving money mowing, fertilising, and reseeding, allowing for the pitches to be played on more frequently without the need for downtime for maintenance, maximising the value and usage of the facility.


Quality is paramount at Playrite as such we offer a minimum 5 year warranty on all of our surfaces. Adhering to rigorous quality control standards, we ensure each surface meets our specifications for performance, consistency, and longevity, delivering unparalleled value and peace of mind to our customers.

Enviromental Credentials 

Artificial surfaces, especially sand-filled surfaces, are a more sustainable and practical choice for sports facilities aiming to minimise their impact on the environment while ensuring top-notch playing conditions for athletes. Unlike natural grass pitches, they do not need regular watering, mowing, or reseeding, conserving water resources. Additionally, they eliminate the requirement for harmful pesticides or fertilisers, further reducing environmental impact.
