Easy maintenance, better drainage and versatility are the motivation behind the choice that a growing number of baseball clubs have made to cover their pitches in artificial turf. Performance in the game can be greatly undermined if there are surface inconsistencies in different areas of the pitch.
Although MLB (Major League Baseball) teams’ pitches are not precisely regulated, many professional clubs prefer to install the latest generation of artificial turf due to its many benefits.
Thanks to the experience gained from almost 40 years in the business, Limonta Sport it is at the forefront of design and installation of the best Baseball systems.
Padel’s journey started in the ‘70s in a Mexican villa and has been fast: from Latin America, to Europe, to Spain, where it quickly gained wide appeal and exposure. In Argentina there are now a few million players, but this sport is also gaining popularity in France, Brazil and the United States, where the United States Padel Association (USPA) has managed and organised tournaments since 1993. In Italy, the Italian Padel Federation (F.I.G.P) was founded in 1991 and in 2008, CONI, a Limonta Sport partner, included Padel as part of the Italian Tennis Federation.
The court does not exceed 20 metres in length by 10 metres in width and the use of artificial turf flooring is the only viable alternative to concrete, according to the standards accepted by the Federal Technical Commission.
In collaboration with professional athletes, Limonta Sport has designed the ideal solution for padel courts: the system offers optimal surface roughness, that on the one hand ensures proper pace of play and prevents premature shoe and ball wear, and on the other ensures better grip and shock absorption.
