Pickleball is the fastest-growing sport in the USA! It’s a fast-paced and fun sport that is played on a court with a hard surface. However, playing on a hard court can be tough on the body, especially for those who are older or have joint problems. That’s where artificial grass comes in. Using artificial grass on or around a pickleball court can provide a softer, more forgiving surface that can help players avoid injuries. Just ask the players of Pickleball England!

Artificial grass can be installed around the perimeter of the pickleball court to create a soft and comfortable border. This can be especially useful in areas where the court is located near concrete or other hard surfaces. Players who run off the court can land on artificial grass instead of hard concrete, reducing the risk of injury. Additionally, the artificial grass can provide a visual contrast to the court surface, making it easier for players to see the boundaries of the court.

In addition to providing a softer surface, artificial grass can also make maintenance of the pickleball court easier. Traditional grass courts require constant watering, mowing, and fertilizing to maintain their appearance and functionality. However, artificial grass requires very little maintenance, which can save time and money in the long run. Artificial grass is also more durable than traditional grass and can withstand heavy foot traffic without becoming damaged or worn.

Artificial grass can also be used to create a more attractive playing surface. Smart Turf offers Multi-Sport turf in a variety of colors and textures, allowing players to customize their court to match their personal style.  This can create a more enjoyable playing experience, as players will be more likely to have fun on a court that looks and feels great. Additionally, artificial grass can help to reduce glare from the sun, which can improve visibility on the court and make it easier to see the ball.

One potential concern of using artificial grass on or around a pickleball court is the cost. Artificial grass does require upfront cost of the materials and installation however, the long-term benefits of artificial grass, such as reduced maintenance and increased durability, can make it a worthwhile investment over time. Smart Turf offers financing options that can make the cost more manageable, just ask us how.

Overall, using artificial grass on or around a pickleball court can provide numerous benefits for players and court owners alike. It can create a softer, more forgiving surface that can help to reduce injuries and provide a more enjoyable playing experience. Additionally, artificial grass can be easier to maintain than traditional grass and can create a more attractive and customized playing surface. While the cost of artificial grass may be a consideration, the long-term benefits can make it a worthwhile investment.
