New Zealander’s have a real passion for rugby starting at junior club games on cold and wet Saturday mornings to watching the All Blacks. TEAM Sports IRB approved artificial turf surfaces can play a major role in the growth of rugby in New Zealand. No more ‘fields closed’ signs, no more cancelled trainings and games, just dry and consistent surfaces all year round making for entertaining running rugby. Synthetic turf surfaces allow for around 4 times the use of a natural grass field providing clubs and associations with facilities to cater for a greater number of teams and players.

After installing the world’s first dedicated rugby field in 2000 at the Runaway Bay Super Sports in Australia, TEAM Sports has continued the development of this 3rd Generation grass technology in accordance with the IRB regulation 22. In 2007 TEAM Sports Surfaces installed the first New Zealand synthetic rugby surface to IRB standard at Auckland’s College Rifles Rugby Club. This new surface has gained acceptance from the players and now provides unlimited use for the increasing number of teams at the club.

“Our synthetic rugby fields are extremely hard wearing and provide a consistent playing surface in all weather conditions. Our rugby pitch with synthetic turf is one of the best things that we have at the centre. There has been an overwhelmingly positive response from people who have used the pitch. At first people don’t realize that it is synthetic, they just think that we keep the grass really healthy. Everything revolves around the field, it is the focal point to what we do"

Nick Pye, Managing director – Sports Super Center – Runaway Bay, Queensland, Australia.

The International Rugby Board’s One Turf programme has moved to the next phase with the selection of five Preferred Turf Producers who will oversee the production, installation and maintenance of artificial surfaces around the world to the Governing Body’s strict technical, performance and player welfare criteria.

Leading Turf specialists Limonta Sport (Italy), Greenfields B.V (Netherlands), Mondo S.P.A (Italy), FieldTurf Tarkett (USA) and SIS/TEAM (UK/Ireland/Australia/NZ) have been appointed after a rigorous selection process that will ensure the highest possible player welfare and performance standards are achieved.
