The evolution of multi-sport pitches: From 2G to 4G

Published: 08 March 2024

In the dynamic world of sports, the quality and type of pitch play pivotal roles in not only the game's performance but also in player safety and environmental sustainability. With the advent of synthetic turf technologies, the distinction between 2G, 3G, and 4G multi-sport pitches has become increasingly significant. Perfectly Green, a leading provider in the UK, understands this evolution, offering a comprehensive range of multi-sport artificial grass products designed to meet the diverse needs of schools and clubs across the country.

The Generations Explained

Lesiure Colours 2G pitch2G Pitches - Second Generation turfs are typically short-piled and densely packed, making them ideal for sports like hockey and tennis. While they marked a significant improvement over their predecessors, they lack the infill and thus, the natural grass feel, limiting their suitability for contact sports.
3G sports pitch3G Pitches - The Third Generation pitches represent a leap in synthetic turf technology. These surfaces are characterised by longer blades of grass and are infilled with rubber granules and sand. This combination provides a more realistic grass feel, making 3G pitches suitable for a wider range of sports, including football and rugby, offering enhanced safety and performance.
Duraplay installation4G Pitches - As the advanced edge in artificial turf technology, 4G pitches do not require an infill (although a dressing of sand is often applied) and are designed with even longer, more durable blades. This innovation not only replicates the playing characteristics of natural grass more closely but also minimises maintenance and improves player safety. However, the term "4G" is not universally recognised in the industry standards and is often used to market advanced non-infill products.
