Towson University Takes it to the Next Level with Combat Turf™

Sporturf dealer MasterCare Flooring recently install over 4,000 square feet of Sporturf’s Combat Turf™ at Towson University in Towson, Maryland.

Towson University reached out to MasterCare Flooring rep Rudy Higgins to help them with their Burdick Hall expansion. The university needed something strong and durable so they chose Combat Turf™. The 94,000 square feet Burdick expansion has taken some time to complete and after a three-year hiatus, it is finally complete and includes the following:

Features of the bigger, better Burdick Hall:

  • Two large, multi-purpose activity courts
  • A sprint hill and fitness stairs for interval training
  • Five studios for group fitness classes
  • A professionally designed ninja warrior style fitness course
  • A new outdoor adventure trip and education center with the re-opening of the 33-foot climbing wall
  • 22,000 square feet of fitness space for strength training with over 100 pieces of cardio equipment

Do you know about the Synthetic Turf Council?

According to the Synthetic Turf Council (STC), “Currently, there are between 12,000 and 13,000 synthetic turf sports fields in the U.S., with approximately 1,200 – 1,500 new installations each year.” Therefore, education about the benefits of synthetic turf is a crucial topic. Many people are just not aware of how much it can benefit their lives.

Synthetic turf is an excellent, durable solution for a multitude of sports, such as football, field hockey, baseball, tennis, lacrosse and rugby. In fact, about half of all NFL teams currently play or practice on synthetic turf.

Now more than ever, millions of students around the world have new opportunities to practice and play on a sports field that is always game ready. This innovation in synthetic turf has helped teams go from worst to first, intensified school pride and brought together entire communities. When students and children have a safe, stable place to play, they thrive and grow into happy, healthy adults.
