Stitched hybrid pitch systems


SISGrass hybrid pitch system

MJ Abbott is proud to have been involved with the SISGrass hybrid pitch system from its inception. Since our first project carried out at the Football Association’s St George’s Park in 2015, we have played a significant part in promoting the system in the UK.

Utilising a laser-guided machine to ensure accuracy, soft polyethylene yarn is injected into the pitch rootzone on a 20mm x 20mm matrix across the entire area, to a depth of 180mm in the surface and 20mm above the surface. The resulting hybrid turf pitch offers ultimate performance, including longer playing hours and faster pitch recovery after play.

All installation of the hybrid yarn, including pitch mowing and tidying while the stitching takes place, is carried out by SISGrass qualified grounds staff.
