As most of you know, we will shortly be leaving our indoor haven and going back outside to play, the nights are drawing out and the weather might even get better.
We are trying to get us playing on a 3G astroturf/artificial grass pitch. The feeling is that the 2G sand based one is a bit too hard for our poor old joints, the number of injuries surely wasn’t just down to a poor warm up? Failing that, we will try and get playing on grass.
The following link gives details about the various artificial playing surfaces and is well worth a read.
I noticed a one chap in the comments saying that he prefered the old 2G pitches due to the fast pace of the ball on the surface, he also said that the newer artificial surface (3G) slowed it down, thats exactly what we need.
Anyway, have a read and leave your thoughts in the comments.
