The Locker Room


IMG-20131003-00414The new training grounds for London Irish from the Summer of 2014, The Hazlewood Centre of Sporting Excellence in Sunbury on Thames, already have a full sized Rhino-Turf pitch installed. Jonathan Gallagher, Managing Director of Rhino’s licensee in this product area, Easigrass Sports, today unveiled the newly laid Rhino-Turf VT60 pitch to which the final touches were being made. “We are grateful to our contracting and installing partners for doing a great job – we have taken on board feedback from some quarters on previous artificial turf pitches for rugby that they are a little too soft and spongy and prepared a firm and true surface which will serve London Irish well. I would encourage anyone who wants to see a truly top quality artificial pitch for rugby to come and see this one”. Rhino are fortunate to have as their exclusive supplier of the Rhino-Turf range of products the world’s number one producer of artificial turf, CC Grass of Nanjing in China. That however is only half the story – it’s not something which is widely understood but the installation and maintenance of artificial turf pitches for sport is as much about process as quality of product. Rhino are able to deliver top quality pitches not only because of the quality of CC Grass’s product but also as Jonathan comments by virtue of the skills displayed by our contracting and installing partners – in this particular case MJ Abbot, Verde Recreo and Sports Surface Solutions. If you get a Rhino pitch therefore you get not only top quality materials, but equally important the very best skills and equipment for installation and maintenance. We never compromise on this. Full Rhino-Turf rugby pitches are now to be found from Singapore to Bradford and we look forward to continuing to participate in what looks to be an unstoppable global market trend.
