Boston, MA — With an average temperature of 45°F between December to March, keeping kids active during the cold season can be a challenge. Thanks to the team from New England Turf Store, an official distributor of SYNLawn, children of all ages now have an exciting new place to play in Norfolk at Fore Kicks Sports Complex. The indoor sports facility includes a 16,000 square foot multi-purpose athletic field for soccer, field hockey, lacrosse, and more.
Enhancing Multi-Purpose Athletic Fields with Synthetic Turf
The field at Fore Kicks has installed SYNLawn’s SpeedTurf™, a high-quality, non-infill, low-friction synthetic turf that includes an energy-absorbing backing pad. SpeedTurf was designed with athletes in mind and was ideal when selecting the perfect turf for the project. One of the most attractive properties of SpeedTurf is the ability to withstand high foot traffic while remaining low-friction, making this ideal for keeping kids active.
The New England Turf Store team also installed SYNPlay 60, an artificial grass originally constructed for school district playgrounds throughout the project. SYNPlay is also ideal for indoor agility areas. Its low-friction grass blades combined with an energy-absorbing backing pad that helps reduce the risk of typical playing and training injuries common with active children and athletes. The durability and quality of both types of turf will allow the surfacing in the facility to withstand years of use from kids in the community.
Perhaps the most exciting feature of the installation is the multi-colored lines that were seemed into the field itself. While it may not look interesting to the untrained eye, installers with experience will recognize the incredibly high-level skill it takes to create the lines throughout the field with the seems to show. It takes meticulous planning and a very high skill set to install correctly, and the team from New England Turf Store knocked this project out of the park.
