US Lacrosse selects GreenFields as official synthetic turf partner

The national governing body of one of the fastest growing sports, Lacrosse, has signed a five partnership with GreenFields US.  GreenFields will install a GreenFields MX Trimension® woven turf combined with an innovative new woven TenCate Sine® shockpad with a TPE infill, at the new headquarters and training center in Sparks.

With the chosen products US Lacrosse is certain that the system will provide the latest technology when it comes to safety and performance. GreenFields will also support US Lacrosse with two portable indoor fields using its non-infill system at the annual Lacrosse convention.

Steve Stenersen, CEO US Lacrosse:  “We spent considerable time evaluating the product lines and brand fit of a number of synthetic turf manufacturers, and we concluded that GreenFields was an outstanding fit.” “From innovation to performance to sustainability, their product lines stood out, and I believe GreenFields will emerge as the preferred synthetic surface for lacrosse. We’re excited to be building what we feel will be the state-of-the-art lacrosse field for our national team training center.”

The field will serve as home for Team USA and a site for international, college and high school games, as well as youth play. The site will also serve as an education center for national coach and official training.

The GreenFields MX Trimension® turf is GreenFields latest development in artificial turf technology. Its innovative weaving technique gives athletes a playing field that is unparalleled when it comes to playability, safety, aesthetics and durability. The TenCate-produced fibers are nearly identical in texture to natural grass and possess many of the same properties.
