A weekly newsletter to keep you informed about EVERYTHING Turf at the Maryland SoccerPlex.
This week we will look into our finished state-of-the-art synthetic fields!
Open for business
Our three new synthetic turf fields opened for play on March 11. Why did we replace them? Believe it or not they were ten year's old, the useful life of a synthetic turf field. Another little known fact is that we average 1,800 hours/year per field. So over ten years we clocked about 18,000 hours per field - amazing.
A year ago we started researching new synthetic turf systems (shock pad, turf and infill) to find the combination that provided the greatest safety for the player, playability close to natural grass and durability. Our new system includes a Brock Power Base shock pad, AstroTurf DT32 "carpet" and Zeofill infill.
