The Bob Leonard Park project was a public bid. PLAYRITE had previously built another soccer field in the same park for the Town of Farragut in 2013 so the staff knew about the company and their quality of work really well.  They appreciated PLAYRITE’s quality of work and product so much that PLAYRITE won the project despite the fact that they were not the lowest bid.

Combat Turf

This non-rubber infilled turf has all the advantages of previous generations and perform even higher in wear and resistance tests. The blend of nylon and polyethylene is an almost perfect 50/50 combination. This gives you the true ball roll of a traditional nylon field, with the softness of the new generation rubber-filled turf. No rubber infill makes maintenance easier, and up to 10% cooler. These systems can also be portable with added 4” or 8” Velcro.

About Athletic Republic

ATHLETIC REPUBLIC IS THE CULMINATION OF 25 YEARS OF IMPROVING ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE.

That’s longer than most athletes’ careers.  John Frappier developed the original Acceleration Training programs through careful research and input from a team of sports medicine professionals, athletic trainers and elite coaches. The performance sports training program has evolved into a training system that has followed the same evidence-based approach that formed the foundation for Frappier’s pioneering work: uniting proprietary equipment, sport-specific and age-appropriate training protocols, trainer education and operating resources to help athletes improve their speed, power, agility, and stamina. This foundation would facilitate training center operators turning their passion into a profitable venture.

PLAYRITE and Anderson County High School

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.”

Andrews Institute Completion

Sporturf recently completed a turf installation at the Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine in Gulf Breeze, FL.

The Andrews Institute was founded by internationally renowned orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. James Andrews and provides a spectrum of services in order for patients at all levels of performance to quickly and accurately address their orthopaedic needs.

The existing turf had reached the end of its useful life and in an effort to provide their clients with a cutting edge surface for training and rehabilitation, Sporturf was selected to install PowerHouse 45 over the original shock pad. The installation was a huge success and was met with rave reviews from the Andrews team.

PowerHouse is one of our most advanced system designs and provides high resilience and increased comfort, durability and safety. The fiber combination is designed to withstand all the rigors of wear and tear for many years.  Sporturf is honored to be associated with the Andrews Institute!

Andrews Institute Installing Sporturfs PowerHouse

This week we are featuring a project that is currently under construction at the Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine in Gulf Breeze, FL.  The Andrews Institute was founded by internationally renowned orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. James Andrews and provides a spectrum of services in order for patients at all levels of performance to quickly and accurately address their orthopaedic needs.

The pictures will give you a better grasp of what happens when you are replacing turf while trying to salvage the previously used sub-base and shock pad.  At this point all of the turf has been removed, the pad has been inspected and they’re in the process of replacing some of the original wood nailer that had rotted beyond repair.  The crew will begin rolling out brand new Sporturf PowerHouse in the coming days. As the project progresses we will post additional updates.

Sporturf and Field Hockey

Sporturf™ has developed a world class Field Hockey surface, called FIH71, utilizing the latest in yarn technology. When performance matters, Sporturf FIH71 excels because we want the athletes to concentrate on the game and not worry about a slow or bouncing ball. A predictable, fast surface is what FIH71 delivers no matter the weather conditions.

Utilizing a skin friendly polyethylene grass blade, FIH71 is much less abrasive than competitive nylon field hockey products for those instances when athletes come in contact with the surface.    FIH71 is the ultimate Field Hockey surface!

Recently, Sporturf FIH71 was installed at Missouri State’s Betty and Bobby Allison North Stadium with rave reviews. The field even includes retractable water cannons that allow for better gameplay.
