Maintenance of synthetic turf, playability and extracting particulates. These are several subjects that frequently pass under review, when it concerns the maintenance of different types of synthetic turf pitches. This is not surprising. A synthetic turf pitch consists of an intelligent system, where the suppliers and contractors adjust the technical characteristics of the pitch to wishes and demands from the sport associations and athletes in the best possible way. With hockey, the pitch characteristics will mainly respond to the ability of a ball to roll and the grip that the athletes experience. Moreover, with football a requirement will be that a sliding tackle must have minimal impact on the fitness of a team.
