 Turf Notes:

When you come and have a hit, keep the following in mind.

 1.       Artificial courts take time to bed in. The sand needs to be worked into the fibres and the best way to improve their playability is by using them. So, we want to encourage everyone to get playing on them asap or, even if it’s just to go for a run around the edges. The more you stamp the better they’ll play!

2.       There will be dead spots and funny bounces for a little while so please bear with us. As the courts cover a huge area members are encouraged to take note of any problem areas and feed that information back to Walter so they can be remedied.

3.       The sand is wet, so it will take longer to work into the fibres at this time of year than if installation happened during the summer. But the advantage of doing it now is that we’ll be ready for the new summer season.

4.       At the moment a lot of the sand is sat on top of the turf, but in a few weeks the sand may not be visible at all, having worked its way down into the fibres. A second sand drop and groom will likely be required before the courts are perfect.

5.       The new courts won’t play exactly like the old ones. The previous courts were nearly 15 years old and had compacted to form a very hard and fast surface. The new turf will likely be slower and softer underfoot.
