VV Hoonhorst, a small, local football association with only 300 members, opted for XtraGrass to boost their field capacity. Thanks to the installation of a hybrid system, their training pitch will now also be qualified to play competition matches.

The choice for hybrid was sensible: an artificial pitch would be too expensive for the club, and the capacity problem was not that big. A hybrid grass pitch, such as XtraGrass, met the club’s financial requirements and the playing needs of 700 hours per year.

To make an informed decision, the Club and municipality visited various hybrid pitch systems in the area. XtraGrass came out of this tour as the best and most suitable option in both use and maintenance.

During the installation of the XtraGrass pitch, the surface is scaled and provided with new drainage. An automatic sprinkler system with pop-up sprinklers was installed. The top layer and the 4 cm infill of the XtraGrass pitch is identically scaled and enriched with organic material.
