"Our technical staff reports that the surface provides a ball roll and bounce that is the closest approximation of a top level natural grass field they have ever experienced. VYSA held multiple events in midafternoon last summer on the surface that was possible because of the cooler surface temperature afforded by the use of Greenplay® organic infill." - Executive Director, Phil Summers.
