Grassmaster are pioneers in hybrid grass technology since 1989. The company, previously known as Desso GrassMaster, was developed to reinforce the durability and the quality performance of natural grass pitches. They are now a part of Tarkett Sports and over time, GrassMaster has become the ultimate reference in stitched hybrid grass technology with more than 650 football and rugby pitches worldwide.
The company leads now the sports grass industry and keeps on innovating with both GrassMaster and a new carpet-based system that ensures an instant playability called PlayMaster. With PlayMaster, they are dedicated to upholding the same high standards of quality performance for stadiums and training grounds today as it has been for years with GrassMaster.

- GrassMaster – stitched hybrid grass technology
GrassMaster is a 100 % natural grass pitch which is reinforced by 20 million polypropylene (PP) fibres. The fibres are injected 18 cm deep and 2 cm above the surface, approximately every 2 cm across the pitch. The ingenuity of the system lies both beneath and above the surface: the natural grass roots grow around the PP fibres, thus anchoring the field. The PP fibres above the surface ensure an always even and stable surface. The GrassMaster system offers a uniform and visually attractive surface with a proven lifespan of more than 15 years.
- PlayMaster – Lay & Play hybrid grass technology
With PlayMaster, launched in 2016, Tarkett Sports guarantees the ideal balance between natural and artificial grass. The carpet-based hybrid grass technology has been developed to meet the need for a quick installation and an instant operational availability by selecting the most qualitative components in reinforced turf sods. PlayMaster offers a high return on investment as it can be used for multipurpose stadiums like the Amsterdam ArenA.
