Sports Turf Completes Premier Natural Grass Stadium and Running Track at Brookstone School
Sports Turf Company, a sports facility construction and specialty surfacing company, is excited to announce the completion of Brookstone School’s stadium renovation. The scope of the project included renovating the existing natural grass field to a premier natural grass field and constructing a new 8-lane Rekortan BS running track and events around the perimeter.
“Our players and coaches are excited about our newly renovated stadium that our current and future athletes will utilize for years to come,” Brookstone Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Rance Gillespie said. “These renovations have been highly anticipated for a long time, and Sports Turf has exceeded our expectations throughout this entire process.”
The field features an eight-inch USGA sand rootzone over a gravel blanket with lateral drain lines. The TifTuf Bermudagrass was installed to increase the durability of the stadium’s playing surface and to help with maintenance due to to this variety’s lower need for water and fertilizer to provide a high quality field. This elite natural grass field can receive a large amount of rain and traffic while remaining playable all season.
In addition, Sports Turf constructed a new 8-lane running track and events around the perimeter of the stadium field. The Rekortan BS track surfacing is a World Athletics certified, 13mm, permeable basemat structural spray polyurethane track system focused on consistent footing and force reduction for athletes.
“We’re honored Brookstone School has entrusted us to not only renovate their facilities, but to look to us at the expert in premier natural grass fields and running tracks,” said Sports Turf Company President Todd Wiggins. “The system we installed on the natural grass stadium field will stand up to high traffic, large amounts of water, and reestablish faster to allow for quick turnarounds from practice to games.”
