Type 1- Open textured porous macadam areas (possibly painted)
Normally used for ball rebound sports where tennis is the priority and sports such as mini-tennis and basketball and netball are secondary users.
Type 2 – High grip open textured porous macadam areas (possibly painted)
Designed for ball rebound sports where netball is the priority and sports such as tennis, mini-tennis, and basketball are secondary users.
Type 3 – High grip finish polymeric surfaces
Designed for ball rebound sports where netball is the priority. Sports such as tennis, mini-tennis, and basketball are secondary.
Type 4 – Polymeric surfaces
Used for football, basketball and general sports and recreational training and play. Due to their greater shock absorbency and lower surface friction these areas are not recommended for tennis or netball.
Type 5 – Sand filled synthetic turf areas with a shockpad.
These surfaces are used for sports such as hockey and small-sided football and may also be used for non-contact training for rugby union, rugby league, American Football and many others.
Type 6 – Sand filled synthetic turf without a shockpad.
These surfaces are used primarily for tennis. Whilst they can also be used for sports such as hockey and football, their relative lack of shock absorption does mean they will not comply with the relevant British and sport’s governing body recommendations and this may increase a facility operator’s liability in the event of a player injury compensation claim.
Type 7 – Sand dressed synthetic turf areas with a shockpad
Primarily designed for hockey, these surfaces can possibly also be used for some other sports, although their use on areas subjected to high intensity play can result in them wearing more rapidly than anticipated and potential carpet movement.
Type 8 – Third generation (long pile) synthetic turf
Developed to replicate the playing characteristics of natural grass, this type of surfacing is now the preferred choice of the FA and RFU for all forms of football and rugby (with a shockpad). They are also used for American Football and lacrosse. Some forms may also allow low-level hockey to be played. The surfaces are not suitable for tennis, netball or basketball.
Type 9 – Needle-punch carpets
This type of surface may be sand filled or bonded to the sub-base. It can be laid with our without a shockpad and depending on the type selected are considered suitable for tennis, netball, hockey and football.
