surfaces / Matchplay II needle punched carpets

Market leading installers of needle punched carpets

If you’re looking for a hardwearing pitch that is suitable for both indoor and outdoor use in all weathers, needle punched carpets are a cost-effective solution that meet multiple criteria. Manufactured in the UK by our friends at Playrite, these surfaces are an ideal solution for many sports – from tennis, netball and badminton courts to cricket, football and hockey pitches, as well as MUGA surfaces.

ETC Sports Surfaces are experts in the design and installation of customised Matchplay II surfaces, which are formed from layers of polymer fibres that are needled together. This technique makes for a durable surface with excellent cushioned characteristics for bounce and contact. Plus, needle punched carpets can incorporate the option of a sand dressed infill. The needle punch finish helps to keep the infill stable, ensuring excellent drainage and equipping your pitch to maintain its integrity for many years – even with very heavy usage.

What are the benefits of needle punched surfaces?

Needle punched carpets have many advantages. They feature a built-in cushion layer that is ideal for medium paced play, they feel more natural than other artificial sports surfaces and they offer protective impact to ensure the safety and comfort of players.  The porous nature of these all weather surfaces also means that play can be resumed as soon as thirty minutes after rain, maximising playing time, keeping your players happy and increasing revenue potential.

We can customise your Matchplay II surface with a range of colours and markings, plus it can be inlaid with permanent lines if required. What’s more, these surfaces require minimal maintenance and provide a top rate performance life of up to ten years.

As with all sports surfaces, it’s vital to ensure that the design, manufacture, installation and care of your surface is carefully planned to match your facility’s usage, your players’ expectations and your budget.  When you choose ETC Sports Surfaces, you’ll enjoy the support of our specialist team, who are on hand to provide you with expert advice and technical guidance. From your initial site survey to the installation of your surface, we’ll ensure that we configure the solution that is best suited to your facility’s needs and your organisational priorities.
