Hague Rugby Club Selects Superb Grass for New Artificial Turf Pitch

Super Long Life New Pitch for Leading Dutch Rugby Club Satisfies Sport's Toughest Tests

Nanjing, China, April 27, 2017 --(PR.com)-- Artificial turf comes in many forms. Just as with the bulk of today’s products in the modern world, there is a low-grade version that could be thought of as a “quick fix.” At the other end of the spectrum, there is the top end variant that offers a multitude of advantages over its inferior cousins, while also being capable of lasting for a very long period.

The Hague Rugby Club (HRC) in The Netherlands does not do things by halves. Founded in 1932 (making it one of the country’s oldest rugby clubs), and with the initial name of “Tackles”, HRC won the nation rugby championships 10 times between 1966 and 1985. Today, it boasts a membership of 500+ and a plush new clubhouse beside its pitch alongside Theo Mann Bouwmeesterlaan in New Wassenaar, a district (former township) in the town of Wassenaar that is the second most prosperous municipality in the Netherlands and home to many a multimillionaire.

Hence, when the club was given considerable say in the selection process, HRC opted for the artificial grass version of a Rolls Royce; “Superb”, a new product from the world’s largest manufacturer of artificial turf, China-based CCGrass.

CCGrass Superb has been found to satisfy the product test requirements of World Rugby Regulation 22, the Performance Specification for Rugby Turf (2015 Performance Specification) and the World Rugby Laws of the Game – Law 1 for use on Outdoor and Indoor venues.

It almost goes without saying that in order to meet such stringent requirements, CCGrass Superb must indeed be just that. The manufacturer is confident in their offering of 12 to 15 years of warranty, while Superb also boasts an incredible resilience.

Labosport is a leading technical institute dedicated to sporting surfaces and equipment. In use for over a decade, their Lisport product has been adopted by the industry as the most state-of-the-art means of realistically replicating wear simulation of sports fields after years of usage, in just days. The machine can simulate the wear patterns on artificial turf made by the compressive stress of both football studs (cleats) and more abrasive wear such as that caused by flat-soled trainers. Tests made at CCGrass’s 500 thousand square metre factory in Jiangsu’s Huai’an city on the company’s own Lisport machine, showed Superb artificial grass to have a wear resistance of some 250,000 Lisport cycles.

It is often said that it is better to weep once than cry many times, an expression that is more than a good fit for the new CCGrass Superb product; the many years of potential use that outstrip virtually every competitor is more than justification for the investment.
