ABS Sports Fields evolved from the construction of Hockey Fields. It was the challenges of designing, constructing and building Hockey Fields for “hockey experts” that created the drive and vision for the ABS renowned quality systems used across all Synthetic Sports Surfaces.
Today many Hockey Fields are not purely for the use of hockey players, with many built with lines and markings for several other sports, enabling extended usage of the facility to a broader section of the community.
The sport of hockey, requires a true and fast surface, with extremely intensive use, demanding excellent durability during all weathers.
ABS Sports Fields builds both wet and hybrid sand filled systems.
The design of your sports field isn’t just about the layout of your new facility, it also determines the base structure, product use and specifications. At ABS Sports Fields we ensure excellent design which in turns provides you with a field you know will stand the test of time.
A poorly designed sports facility may initially stand up for a few years, but more often than not a poorly designed fields which is less than functional for the uses they were intended for often require heavy renovation work within just a year or two.
Much of the renovation work we do at ABS Sports Fields is due to poorly designed fields that actually needed the work 3 or more years before the owners were able to put together the proper capital to have the work done. There are plenty of ways to try and save money on a build project but design and grading is not one of them.
Sports field engineering is very unique and it is common area for installation companies to fail in as they do not have a true understanding of this engineering area. Whether it be the drainage, uneven surfaces our extensive experience in sports field engineering and a detailed knowledge through our vast research experience, ABS Sports Fields should be your first point of call.
The APT Poligras® range, offers the perfect solutions with ideal playing properties for every demand and every budget – from multipurpose pitches through to stadiums for professionals. The Poligras® hockey range is a complex, high tech system, which consist of an elastic base layer, the actual turf surface and, if necessary, natural filling materials.
Various components with special properties are used depending on the intended hockey use.

All sports fields require regular maintenance. Just like golf greens and tees, sports fields are high use, high performance areas. Indeed, when a field is in poor conditions it is more likely to have a negative impact on the players as well, causing injuries, making them focus on their own safety instead of developing their skills.
