Trompie Group has been involved in the construction of natural and artificial hockey pitches since 1990. Our world class construction methods, equipment and experience ensure the best possible hockey surface that meets FIH requirements and standards. We have partnered with the best local and international manufacturers and can offer a wide variety of hockey surfaces and equipment.

Artificial Surface Sand-dressed pitch

Sand-dressed artificial turf is a high specification synthetic sports surface designed specifically for dynamic paced hockey. Sand-dressed systems usually have a pile height of between 18 and 22mm and can be accredited with an FIH certificate. Sand-dressed pitches are ideal for schools and clubs as they are not only environmentally friendly but also more affordable than a wet-based system.

Artificial Surface Dry pitch

Hockey’s move towards dry turf is a response to the increasing scarcity of water resources around the world. The Paris Olympics will be played on ‘Poligras Paris GT zero’ hockey turf. It is the world’s first and only carbon zero hockey turf and has also been FIH Innovation-certified for dry hockey.

The product is successful and dual-certified by the FIH - for wet use in top-tier hockey like the Olympics, and dry use under the Innovation category. This 'play wet / play dry' feature of the Poligras Paris system offers flexibility and benefits globally. As elite hockey transitions to dry surfaces, this feature becomes even more valuable.

Artificial Surface Water-based pitch

The water-based artificial turf system is the top specification surface for hockey and is used for International and Olympic competitions. The sports turf uses a denser pile than other surface types which, combined with the water layer, provides the truest ball roll of any artificial turf system.

Natural Surface

A natural hockey surface requires an irrigation system to be maintained efficiently. Trompie's farms grow only the best quality natural turf for hockey fields and together with our skilled installation teams, our natural surface hockey fields offer quality performance for years to come.

Hockey Equipment

We manafacture and supply variety of hockey equipment & supplies including artificial turf, goals and nets.
