HTPro – sports surface innovation for revenue generation and risk management
HTPro is a high-quality, hybrid carpet reinforced turf system. It provides elite clubs with all the benefits of a hybrid pitch, grown and maintained off-site to your own specifications, which is ready to ‘lay and play’ on demand.
HTPro hybrid turf pitches have revolutionised stadium surface management. They extend the window of opportunity to host large-scale events prior to sporting fixtures, without compromising pitch quality, and provide a customised solution for mid-season pitch replacement.
HTPro pitches are available as supply-only, or as a full turnkey service from specification through to installation.
In play at some of the UK and Europe’s most high-profile stadia, HTPro offers significant benefits:
- Mitigates the operational, financial and reputational risks of pitch failure through a planned approach
- Return on investment - ideal for venues planning a full and varied events schedule
- Avoids limiting the scope or duration of concerts, exhibitions, tournaments and other large-scale events due to the impact on the playing surface
- Consistency for players - each individual pitch is custom grown and maintained to your exact specifications
- Reliable, resilient and ready for use - a high-quality surface with exceptional durability for both sporting and off-season events
- Speed and ease of installation - no requirement for a 6-week pitch shut down, the standard maintenance practice for stadium-stitched hybrid pitches
HTPro pitches are custom-grown by our in-house experts. They are created by growing grass in a specially selected carpet base. Sand infill to the carpet delivers high performance drainage and optimises performance. A natural turf sward is then grown to your specification in carefully-prepared nursery field plots, designed to provide optimal growing conditions.
Once established, each pitch is maintained by our experienced turf professionals using the same regime implemented by your stadium groundstaff team. The regime for your custom-grown reserve pitch is tailored to your specific and exacting requirements, replicating stadium maintenance in full collaboration with your in-house team.
HTPro Turf Carpet Installation
HTPro is the result of a collaborative partnership between Tillers Turf, the UK’s premier sports turf producer, and contractor and installer, Hewitt Sportsturf. Together we have established a team dedicated to providing HTPro hybrid turf sports pitches for professional football and rugby clubs, backed by many years’ experience in design, specification, pitch production and installation.
When your surface is required, it is precision-harvested, transported to its destination in temperature-controlled vehicles, and laid by expert installers. From initial harvesting through transport and laying, every installation is carried with the upmost care and attention to detail to order to deliver the highest quality playing surface.
