In the UK, hockey is played almost entirely on artificial systems. The sport’s control over the required surface characteristics of the artificial turf, ensures a high level of all-year-round performance.

The specific requirements differ to other sports as the focus is on speed, straightness and level of the ball roll. TVS Team Soft is a carefully engineered shock pad system, specifically designed to enhance the hockey performance of the artificial turf system it is paired with.

Smaller granulate and fibre composition allows for a more uniform level without compromising on other key performance variables such as shock absorption or ball rebound.
