Domolympics pitches - or water-based pitches - are the top-of-the-line product in the Domo Sports Grass hockey range. Every movement made by the player and the ball is perfectly absorbed by the pitch and is translated into outstanding technical playing properties. Because the pitch is fully irrigated with a layer of water, an extremely fast, professional high-quality game is obtained, while at the same time protecting the safety of the players. Domolympics was therefore developed in close collaboration with top international hockey players.
Domolympics is available in two varieties.
HIGH LEVEL COMPETITION - DOMOLYMPICS
Domolympics is tufted with 100% polyethylene fibrillated yarn. The yarn is specially crimped to provide very good ball roll with a minimum of deviation. This yarn is soft and supple to play on, and stays this way in very low temperatures. As a result, there is less risk of burns. The characteristic honeycomb structure of the grass fibre also retains the water longer, which allows for uniform drying of the pitch.
HIGH PERFORMANCE LEVEL - DOMOLYMPICS MDC
Domolympics “Multi-Directional-Curled” is tufted with 100% PP monofilament yarn. Polypropylene is a very hard-wearing material due to its molecular structure. This durability is further strengthened through the use of a monofilament. The PP grass fibres have a specific multidirectional micro-crimping, resulting in a very fast ball roll with only the slightest deviation. High-level professional games are played on this pitch. In addition to the hard-wearing nature of this grass mat, they also look exceptionally natural and beautiful - truly a wonder to behold. A blue-lavender colour combination will be made available for use in the 2012 Olympic Games.
Domo® Sports Grass has obtained an FIH Global Certificate for its Domolympics line of water-based pitches. This certificate is only awarded to hockey pitches that are suitable for international and Olympic tournaments.
