This week’s Sporturf blog comes from, PLAYRITE, which has served as the premier sports and recreation construction company in Tennessee for nearly 20 years. A recent installation at Anderson County High School was extremely unique in the fact that the school did not have the funds to install the field initially. However they did have the support of the community. They are working on building the base for the field themselves.
PLAYRITE is working in tandem with the school to transition their natural grass surface to an upper echelon synthetic turf surface from Sporturf. PLAYRITE owner Keith Simmons visited the school on countless occasions to oversee the project and offer guidance to the numerous football supporters that donated their time and resources to ensure that the field was completed.
Jesse Smithey at PLAYRITE had the following to say about the Anderson project:
“Anderson County’s field will be the first that we have done that will have sponsorship logos on the sidelines and even one on the field. That is a trend that will become more and more prevalent in schools and colleges in the coming seasons, as it helps them outfit their programs in turf more quickly and affordably.
By mid-July, weather permitting, the Anderson County Mavericks will have a completed field that features a 50-ounce TrueGrass product from Sporturf. And that 50-ounce turf will totally match the quality to which Anderson County holds its football program.
We definitely want to thank all the great people at Sporturf and those from Anderson County High School who have been a pleasure to work alongside as partners in this venture. We can’t wait until the field is finished.”
