Ballarat Baseball now playing on FieldTurf

Ballarat Baseball, Prince of Wales Park, Ballarat, Victoria.

Turf One was awarded the contract by the City of Ballarat to design and construct a baseball diamond with synthetic turf infield and irrigated warm season grass outfield to replace the existing natural turf diamond.

The synthetic turf was installed over a porous base constructed from over 800 tonnes of graded aggregates to ensure that rainfall is rapidly and efficiently drained away from the surface.

The synthetic turf was manufactured by FieldTurf the global leader in synthetic sports surface production. Its advanced fibre structure is engineered to withstand the heavy demands of baseball and to deliver a durable, high performance surface.

Drought tolerant Santa Ana grass was planted in the outfield and an automatic irrigation system was installed.
