Sports Turf Company was selected in 2021 to renovate Villa High School’s stadium field and running track in Villa Rica, GA. The full scope of the project included the renovation of the existing natural grass field to artificial turf and expanding and resurfacing the existing running track.
The artificial turf field at Sam McIntyre Stadium features AstroTurf’s RootZone 3D3 Blend turf system, Brock Powerbase YSR shock pad, and BrockFILL. AstroTurf’s RootZone 3D3 Blend is a performance artificial turf system that combines slit film and monofilament fibers for optimum durability. The revolutionary Brock Powerbase YSR shock pad technology features large drainage channels, shock-absorbing structures and 25mm thickness to improve player safety and provide more effective drainage. BrockFILL is the latest in alternative infills and is sustainably grown and harvested in Georgia. The unique properties of the wood infill, BrockFILL, decreases field temperatures and gives the feel of a more natural surface with increased traction and footing for athletes.
The renovation to the track included expanding the existing six-lanes to eight and the installation of new synthetic surfacing. The Rekortan BS synthetic track surface can endure higher wear and traffic along with providing enhanced force reduction for athletes.
