Which Sports Can Use Artificial Grass?

The difference between the grass you have in your garden to look at and the grass required for a sports surface, is repetition. While different sports are played at different speeds and at different levels of aggression, they all feature one thing in common: repetitive action.

This means the surface has to be hard-wearing, and the one thing we know about natural turf is that it’s hard to maintain if subjected to constant foot traffic, not to mention any sporting equipment. Turf that cuts, turns muddy or starts to become uneven will ruin any games and put people off playing, whether at professional or amateur level.

That’s why when it comes to sports, artificial grass is a fantastic alternative. Giving you less to worry about with ground maintenance, as well as the option to play in almost any weather, it’s ideal for a range of sports. This month at Easigrass Surrey, we’re going to highlight some of the sports you can use artificial grass for.

Artificial grass for sports | Easigrass Surrey


A sport loved up and down the country and an early adopter of artificial pitches, football benefits greatly from fake grass. The demands on a pitch are huge, with as many as 22 players and the officials running up and down for 90 minutes. Even with smaller 5-a-side games, there is that same constant battering for the surface present.

Plus, when bad weather hits, normal football pitches tend to either become flooded or muddy. The recovery period for the grass is then further restrictive for playing, which is why an artificial pitch makes perfect sense. Guaranteeing a playable surface in anything other than heavy snowfall, artificial grass is widely used by professional teams in Europe and even some Premier League teams use a blend of natural and artificial grass.



Since the game of golf can hinge on the smallest of changes, the grass on the green has to be in top condition at all times. And while golf isn’t played with the same intensity as football or rugby, it still sees plenty of foot traffic once you reach the putting green. Adverse weather is always a risk in the UK, so keeping the pristine surfaces required across all 18 holes can be time and resource-intensive – that’s why artificial grass is often used in the specific area around the holes on courses. 

Of course, getting in a little putting practise at home doesn’t hurt either, which is why we offer our specific artificial grass for putting greens – why not try it and improve your game for the next time you hit the course?



One of the most punishing sports for any turf, rugby has the same issue as football but is intensified by the increased physicality of the game. Delivering better support for your scrums and leaving you with less maintenance to do overall, artificial grass has become a popular alternative – even at professional levels. 

It’s also an excellent idea for any school with a sports surface that needs to be used for multiple sports, allowing rugby lessons and games to be played without spoiling the surface for other sports.



While bowls doesn’t seem like a very intensive game when you’re watching, the conditions the surface provides are crucial to a good game. You need even speed and non-directional surfacing, as well as something durable to take the repeated weight of the bowls themselves. All this means that the maintenance and upkeep of bowling greens can be costly.

Artificial grass for bowling greens is a perfect alternative since it needs little maintenance to be kept in top condition and it won’t be ruined by heavy rain. That means it’s a more cost-effective solution for everyone.



While it’s understandable that famous courts like Wimbledon use real grass, the use of artificial grass for tennis courts is becoming more and more popular. That’s because, like all the other sports mentioned in this list, you need consistent performance. Grip is important, but so is sliding, and an artificial surface allows for both without the risk of wearing away the grass to create bald patches. You can also play tennis in any weather or straight after heavy rain due to how it drains instead of becoming waterlogged.

Maintenance of tennis courts can be costly, so by installing artificial grass, you not only get a multipurpose playing space if you need it for other sports like badminton, but you also save time and money on keeping the surface in top condition.


Whether you have one specific sport you need artificial grass for or you require a multipurpose artificial surface for a variety of sports and games, at Easigrass Surrey we’re here to help. Providing businesses, councils, schools and homeowners with the perfect, low-maintenance alternative to grass, our quality products will ensure you can keep the play going whatever the weather may do.

  • A wonderful company who supply high quality grass. I bought ‘Belgravia’. It is an absolute delight. In fact ... I’ve purchased from them twice now. I wouldn’t look anywhere else. Joe is particularly helpful and made the entire process stress free. He gives sincere advice, is very attentive and helpful.

  • Excellent! Although there was an initially delay in installation date we cannot fault the customer service and ... the guys who came out to do the installation. Lucy was amazing from start to finish and kept us updated, even when we were away on holiday! Our garden is totally transformed and our dog loves the pet grass too. Highly recommended!

  • The Easigrass team installed our grass in the back garden and it looks fantastic. We were given a free no obli ... gation quote but once compared with other companies the quality of the product won hands down. No pestering phone calls no pressure to take the quote. Once agreed date booked, they arrived promptly with a phone call to let us know they were on the way.Work began without any fuss, estimated time was 2 days, yet everything completed to perfection in one visit. All areas hosed down and clean before leaving. I definitely recommend Easigrass quality product and quality service. Thank you Easigrass, shared photos with neighbours who came to visit and we're sure they will be in touch soon 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻10 out of 10

  • Will and the team installed the Easigrass in the back garden and we can't fault any aspect. from initial enqui ... ry to installation they were superb to deal with and professional throughout. Very friendly team, arrived and finished on time and even took the time to hose down the patio on completion.

  • I contacted Easigrass Birmingham as I had just had both my front and back lawns done by another company who cl ... early had no idea about how to lay artificial turf. I Spoke with Sanj who came out the next day, to assess the mess the other company had left. Within a week he managed to get me booked in, and I am now looking out at the perfect lawn, I can't believe how good it looks. His 3 lads have done such a good job, all mess cleared away. I would definately recommend Easigrass Birmingham. Its a YES from me

  • Abdul and Osama from the Fulham, London SW6 area came to clean and restore our Easigrass laid eight years ago ... on a three -storey roof terrace. They did a fabulous job, were really careful taking their equipment through the house, and have made the Easigrass look like new. I would thoroughly recommend the company and all their team - in particular the lovely brothers.

  • Fantastic service from start to finish! Quote was not the cheapest but competitive. Delivery and collection of ... supplies and waste was swift. Niti and team turned up on time along with all the supplies and equipment. They took care to protect my newly fitted kitchen and floors before starting on the garden. Installation was very professionally carried out and to a very high standard. Can’t recommend highly enough. Thanks so much Easigrass!

  • Called Easigrass 5pm Monday for grass for an exhibition stand. I had no clue what grass we wanted just needed ... it to look good. I spoke to the owner (I believe) who was extremely helpful, sorted me a quote recommended the grass and collected 9am next day, the guys even helped loading the grass. I spoke to 2 other artificial grass companies closer to our office none offered the advice and professionalism Easigrass did. Will definitely be back. Great Service.

  • Easigrass are exceptional in every aspect; as they removed an old, poorly laid artificial lawn (not by Easigra ... ss!), the sub-par foundation, and by replacing with a dog-friendly product it has rejuvenated our garden. The fitting team are passionate, very hard working and proud to called Easigrass employees. No faults at all with this company.

  • I was always sceptical about having artificial grass, but decided to go for it as tired of fighting with maint ... aining a real lawn all year round, and having mud in and out of the house. I'm so glad I did, as it looks fantastic and is of great quality. I went for the Belgravia which was in my eyes, the most realistic looking with 3 shades of colour. It feels great too. The whole experience was seemless, from the initial contact through WhatsApp (thanks Mason), getting the quote (thanks Abid) to the actual installation. The guys that turned up were absolutely brilliant - worked solidly pretty much non stop, were extremely efficient and tidied up everything as they went along, right to the end. Thank you guys - fantastic job! I highly recommend using Easigrass for a perfect looking lawn. Thank you.
