Best Answer

Playing all my high school football games on astroturf, I can tell you that playing on the turf does not increase top speed over wearing cleats in nice grass. However, you CAN cut and accelerate noticeably quicker on astroturf. Planting, changing direction, etc, are all so much easier on turf rather than grass.

It's clear enough that Astro Turf doesn't need water the same way that living grass does, but it does need to be cleaned from time to time. It is designed for rain to be absorbed by the infill material in very much the way that rain would be absorbed by a natural lawn.

What is the difference between astro boots and normal football boots?

Astro boots, are used for playing on astro turfs and hard grass because they give you better grip than, in muddy grass. Normal football boots are generally metal studs which is used for muddy wet grass because they did into the ground and supply you with much better grip than astros would. But you can get football boots with molded plastic studs which can be used for astro turf as well as grass but I don't like using my moulds of astro because it makes you higher off the ground and means it is harder to kick the ball because of the studs :)

About tennis ground?

There are lots of different surfaces in tennis. There is the classic grass court, where the doesn't bounce much and is a faster paced game. There is hard court, where the ball bounces really high, and is normally a more slow paced game. Astro-turf is another surface, which is similar to grass, except more fast paced and you can slide all over the place. And finally clay. This is the ultimate fast paced, low ball bouncing game. You slide all over the court! Great fun! Hope this helped! If this question helped you, please recommend me! =)

How many NFL fields are turf?

Currently, there are 18 NFL Stadiums with a grass, natural grass mix, or grass/artificial fiber mix. The move has been towards some type of artificial turf or mix for many teams for a number of reasons, but the most obvious is maintenance and upkeep. As an example, the Ravens stadium originally had natural grass (smelled great too). However, much of the field was trashed during filming of the movie "The Replacements", and had to be completely replaced. Given that the stadium is also used for other events, it was more cost effective to move to artificial turf. It's also much easier to maintain during the colder and rainier months during the regular season. Still, I miss that smell of natural grass during Ravens home games.

In Tennis which is faster clay or grass?

Historically, Grass is the fastest of all surfaces and Clay is the slowest. Though, in the last decade Wimbledon has experimented with their surface to slow it down. Big serves were dictating play too much. I also believe that the clay at Roland Garos (French Open) played faster than in years past in '09. With that being said, Grass, even though slower than 10 years ago, and Clay, arguably faster, Grass is still considerably faster than clay.
