Artificial Grass For Hockey Pitches

Since the 1970s, field hockey has been played on synthetic turf all over the world, from school and club matches all the way up to full internationals and even Olympic events.

EasigrassTM Sport has witnessed the rise in popularity of the sport firsthand, advising on and installing countless artificial hockey pitches over the last 20 years. We provide a range of high quality hockey products to suit any budget, including fully synthetic water‐based international level pitches tested to the International Hockey Federation’s performance standards.

Our pitches have been designed to allow players to bring their A game and produce free‐flowing and fast hockey without worrying about underfoot conditions.


Installing an artificial hockey pitch in Dubai is good for the game, good for the environment, and good for business. Here’s why:

Low Maintenance, Low Cost

Keeping any natural grass pitch playable is hard work, particularly in the heat and humidity of the UAE. It requires a huge amount of time, energy, and money to ensure the pitch is fit for purpose.

Artificial grass on the other hand only requires a minimal amount of maintenance to retain its quality. This level of maintenance is both affordable and effective, meaning fewer man hours spent tending to the pitch, and lower costs associated with labour, equipment, and water.

And while the initial outlay for the installation of an artificial hockey turf system will be higher than that of a real grass pitch, these costs will be significantly offset by reducing the previously mentioned maintenance costs.

Play More Field Hockey

Unlike natural grass fields, artificial hockey pitches can be played on all year round without falling foul to the weather. With superior drainage, they absorb water without flooding, and the harsh Dubai sunshine won’t damage the surface. All in all, these pitches remain in prime match condition 365 days a year, rain or shine. Say goodbye to cancelled training sessions and rescheduled fixtures.

Book More Matches

If you run a sports centre, or manage the sports facilities at a school or local authority, then installing an artificial grass hockey pitch is a terrific opportunity to increase revenue for your organisation.

Typically, these pitches are installed as multisport surfaces, meaning you can book in hockey and football games on the same surface without compromising the quality of the pitch. As the grass can withstand more sport than real grass, and more playable surfaces equates to more people being able to play, you can confidently take more bookings.

Project Objective

Bristol GS hockey pitch is shared with Firebrands Hockey club. The old surface was replaced with a new insitu pad and Rhino-Turf HF18 hockey surface. The pitch has been tested to FIH National and performs to the same standards as an FIH Global field. The surface features a red surround, highlighting the playing surface. The contract was installed by Sports Surface Solutions on behalf of main contractor Verde Recreo.

“The school has been absolutely delighted with the performance of the Easigrass Rhino-Turf HF18 sand dressed pitch. It provides a true playing area which appears to perform on a par with the higher specification that is normally associated with a water based surface. All players from the youngest junior to the senior club performers are universally pleased with this new facility.”

“We were equally pleased with the contractors who were punctual, meticulous in their planning and expert in all aspects of the construction process.’’
