GreenFields TX –  Developed for modern hockey

Hockey is perhaps the most complete sport. One that demands a lot from its sportsmen and women. Like speed. And agility. And power. And it is this mix that puts very high demands on the base that is played upon – the artificial turf. GreenFields TX was exclusively developed with an eye on playing modern, fast hockey at the very highest level. GreenFields TX builds on the success of the GreenFields MX system used by professional football clubs in the Dutch Jupiler League, and stems from GreenFields

ambition to develop a top-quality playing surface for hockey – a pitch that is ideal for playing modern fast hockey at the highest level.

GreenFields TX is one of the most recent innovations, an artificial grass system developed in close collaboration with technology specialist TenCate and leading hockey players. In its development , TX has been tested extensively by clubs playing at the highest level.

World cup hockey pitchThe foundation for top competition GreenFields TX is chosen as official playing field 2014 World Cup. 24 teams from around 15 countries and five continents will be competing with each other at Kyocera Stadium, accommodating 15,000 spectators, and at the GreenFields Stadium, with a capacity of 5,000 seats.

GreenFields TX

The Choice of Champions

This new pitch is very good. Short fibers, fibers close together, which make it a nice levelled pitch! The ball rolls smoothly which makes perfect ball control possible and predictable as the ball bounce is very consistent. There is no difference in the roll of the ball anywhere on the field. With the fibers being short and close together there is little underfoot friction. GreenFields TX is fast and soft without being too soft. In short, excellent pitch with all ingredients for the modern hockeyplayers

Newcastle International Hockey Centre is very pleased with the Greenfields TX product. We have three artificial surfaces and have at all times sourced the best product to suit our centre since its opening in 1989. The players have indicated the surface runs true, sure footing with very little under foot friction, and excellent for all levels of skill.
