The Washington Huskies are Getting Game-Ready on AstroTurf®

Seattle, WA – AstroTurf® and the University of Washington have a relationship that goes back several decades. Washington was one of the original universities to install AstroTurf® back in 1968 when synthetic turf was first appearing in the college market. The two have rekindled their relationship with the university selecting one of the most technologically-advanced synthetic turf systems in the industry for their football practice field.

The field itself is AstroTurf’s most popular turf due to its combination of long-lasting performance and game day good looks.  The RootZone 3D3 system results in minimal infill splash and better shock absorbency, while improving safety, playability and durability. Also included in the system is Trionic®, AstroTurf’s patented new wonder-fiber.  Trionic® is a blend of polyethylene and nylon fibers that is quickly revolutionizing the synthetic turf industry.

This premium system is topped off with a Zeolite infill that reduces field temperatures substantially. It absorbs and slowly releases water for noticeably cooler field temperatures. The cutting edge, cooler system was the right choice to combat the extreme and punishing heat that comes with preseason training during the summer months.

“The decision of selecting a playing surface for our student-athletes is not one we take lightly,” said Chuck Young, Director of Facility Operations at the University of Washington. “We considered everything that an AstroTurf® surface had to offer in the way of performance, aesthetics, durability, and safety and we are confident that we made the right choice.”

AstroTurf Regional Sales Manager Gregg Swenson added, “We are thrilled to be back on campus at the University of Washington! It is has been billed as the ‘Greatest Setting in College Football’ and who wouldn’t want to be a part of that? We have provided Washington with a high-performing AstroTurf® field that will prove to be consistent and reliable as the Huskies get ready for Saturdays this fall.”

Installation of the practice field for the University of Washington was performed by certified AstroTurf® distributor Coast to Coast Turf of Seattle, Washington.

Head Coach Chris Petersen and the Huskies will be seeking double-digit wins for the fourth consecutive year as UW opens the 2019 football season at home against Eastern Washington on August 31st

AstroTurf Meets Up With 3 Other Sport Group Brands at Meeting Street School

Providence, RI – Four Sport Group brands come together for a unique installation at an extraordinary school.  Sport Group, the world’s largest sports surfacing company, recently had multiple brands called on to provide a variety of applications at the Meeting Street in Providence, Rhode Island.

Meeting Street is where children of all ages and abilities receive individualized attention from highly trained, dedicated educators, therapists, and staff who work as a team, sharing strategies and identifying solutions to bring out the best in each and every child. The school has a stated goal of creating an environment, and ultimately a world, where individuals of all abilities learn, play, work, and live together. For 70 years, the school has been a pioneer in the areas of early childhood inclusive education, and helping children with special needs. Meeting Street is where children of all ages and abilities thrive. They offer programs for children before they are born until 22 years old.

To help meet the need of providing the children with a safe and fun place to play and compete, the school called on AstroTurf® and three of its sister brands to install multiple surfaces on the campus.  This project called for a high-performance playing field, a reliable running track, a durable surface for the spectator area, and a dependable grass-like surface for the common areas.

To manage the installation of the various products, Sport Group turned to one of its valued certified distributors, Atlantic Sports Group of Canton, MA.  ASG is well-qualified to oversee the installation of each component of these state-of-the-art sports surfaces.

Scott Kosterich, President of Atlantic Sports Group said, “This was one of those projects that called for a wide range of knowledge and expertise to execute. Our crews performed superbly to give the Meeting Street School a multipurpose area to meet their needs. We are thrilled to be a trusted partner with AstroTurf and its sister brands and to be able to work on rewarding jobs like this one.”

Each component of the Meeting Street design demanded very specific requirements. For the actual playing field, they chose AstroTurf’s RootZone 3D3. It is the company’s most popular system known for its long-lasting performance and good looks. The system results in minimal infill splash and better shock absorbency, while improving safety, playability and durability.

Surrounding the beautiful AstroTurf field is a high-performing Rekortan R-10 track. Designed for the current day athlete, the renowned Rekortan® track system is a diverse, world class series of polyurethane running tracks that are unmatched in quality and performance. The track was expertly installed by ATT Sports, Inc. of Berlin, NJ.  ATT Sports, Inc. has built a tremendous reputation for providing premier installations for premier institutions.

The common area outside of the Rekortan® track required a durable surface that would stand up to crowds and everyday use. The right product for the job was SYNLawn® X47. Weighing in at a whopping 100-ounce face weight, this artificial grass variety rises above the competition with its unmatched softness and durability. Multi-color grass blades and dense tan thatch combine to offer a leading contender in its weight class.

Last but certainly not least, Laykold® was selected for the spectator area in the facility.  Known as the premier surface brand in the tennis court and Pickleball markets, Laykold® is a family of acrylic sports surfaces that can be customized to achieve the desired performance and appearance in multiple applications.

Family is a wonderful thing, especially when they all complement each other so well. Sport Group family members AstroTurf, Rekortan, SYNLawn, and Laykold proved at the Meeting School why they are all leaders in their categories and how well the brands can come together to create something very special.

AstroTurf Serves as the Stage for the 2019 CrossFit Games

Madison, WI – AstroTurf® will be the stage for some of the fittest individuals on the planet this weekend as the CrossFit Games begin at the Alliant Energy Center August 1st through the 4th.   The CrossFit Games are billed as the ultimate proving grounds for the “Fittest on Earth” and only the top performers will advance from the Open and the sanctioned events for the chance to compete on the big stage.

AstroTurf® introduced the world to synthetic sports turf in the 1960’s, thereby changing athletic competition forever. It went on to invent conversion systems (Magic Carpet, AstroHopper, and AstroLift) that have fundamentally altered stadium operations, affording arenas previously unknown flexibility and revenue opportunities. In fact, AstroTurf® conversion systems have been in use since the installation of AstroTurf® at the Houston AstroDome in 1966. The need for flexible and adaptable systems also led to the creation of the Astro-Mod system being used at this year’s CrossFit Games.

AstroTurf’s Astro-Mod system was the perfect choice for the rigorous challenges that take place at the games as some of the world’s greatest athletes compete.  The Astro-Mod turf panels can be installed and removed with little to no equipment. This is a non-infill system with each panel being approximately 29.5 Sq. Ft per panel. This major innovation in synthetic turf systems, along with the high-performance lightweight materials, allow for easier transportation and installation. The same panels can be used for both indoors and outdoors, providing even more adaptability. This system can be used for small applications like in CrossFit gyms or for larger fields like at the CrossFit games.

The CrossFit Games have longed served as a celebration and test of fitness of the highest caliber, and the thirteenth installment of the games promises to be one of the great exhibitions in the history of fitness. There will be plenty of action on the AstroTurf® surface and much heart and determination showcased.  The event will be a great display of community, desire, and passion, and AstroTurf® is thrilled to be at center stage for it all.
