As a field manager, you want to provide your sports team a pitch that meets their needs to achieve the best possible results. But perhaps more importantly, the pitch must be saved. Many injuries can be related to poor pitch conditions, and when you are in control, you can prevent this from happening. Now you know precisely which values should be met to assure a pitch that your team needs.
In addition, having an objective picture of your pitch’s state helps you communicate with important stakeholders and/or the sports team. We help you to get rid of that gut feeling.
Our solutions will help you to realize a proactive way of working based on facts. By doing so, you can:
– Save costs and materials
– Achieve better results
When you are an experienced user of the HiPSter, you will be able to measure your pitch in around 60 minutes. This is based on measuring 7 locations which will give you a good impression of the state of the pitch.
Only the rotational resistance test will cause minor damage to your pitch. We designed this measurement tool to cause less damage than usual without compromising measurement accuracy.
All the other measurements will not cause any damage at all!
No, calibration of the measuring tools is already done before delivery. The performance of your HiPSter is checked remotely by our service engineers. As soon as its performance starts to deviate, we will undertake action. In this way, we always provide you with reliable data.
The only thing you will have to do is to perform two tests on a flat concrete surface before measuring your pitch. These tests are:
– Ball rebound, adjust the ball pressure to assure the correct rebound height.
– Impact test to control the operation of this apparatus.
More information will be provided in the measurement instructions.
It is not needed to clean the HiPSter. If required, any grass clippings or other debris can be brushed off with a brush.
More information will be provided in the supplied manual.
You should store the HiPSter in a dry and sheltered space. Prevent the apparatus from being stored in extreme temperatures (both high and low) or very humid areas.
Access to a power outlet is also useful when the apparatus is low in battery.
More information can be found in the included HiPSter manual, our Hi Sports website, or by contacting our experts via the contact menu.
The results will have the same reliability. The only difference is that with the HiPSter, you can perform the measurements by yourself.
The device is intended to measure various performance parameters of a natural grass pitch in accordance with FIFA’s specifications. These are described in the “FIFA QUALITY PROGRAMME FOR NATURAL PLAYING SURFACES” (October 2021 edition, version 1.0).
