The intensive team sport
Rugby was first introduced to English schools in the 19th century. From there on, the sport gained worldwide fame and it grew to be one of the biggest sports in England and the United States of America. Since rugby is an extreme intensive contact sport, it is critical to play it on top of a safe and shock resistant surface. Back in the days, there was no such thing. But at this moment, Edel Grass produces the best, safest, and most uninjured artificial rugby pitches the sports world has to offer.
When talking about rugby, people mostly refer to Rugby Union, which is played in leading countries, like England, the USA, South-Africa, and New Zealand. Rugby is an extremely intensive contact sport in which a good rugby system is essential for preventing injuries. Generally speaking, an Edel Grass artificial rugby pitch always consists out of long grass fibers filled with sand and performance infill, built on a extra thick and strong shock-absorbing sub-base. Our rugby systems are all extensively tested to guarantee a safe field for all players. Because of this, we are one of the World Rugby’s preferred turf producers.
A performance-filled artificial rugby pitch is the most realistic alternative for natural grass. It is developed, tested and optimized to prevent injuries as much as possible. Besides all this, our systems were developed to the extent of efficient and minimized maintenance. An Edel Grass rugby system is durable. With correct use and maintenance any Edel Grass artificial rugby pitch offers a long lifespan up to 10 or even 12 years, with the guaranteed preservation of all playing characteristics. We look forward to create an artificial rugby pitch for you!
