The Rugby World Cup 2023 is scheduled to take place in France from September 8 to October 28. The campus of The Rugby Club Toulonnais has been chosen as the base camp for South Africa’s national team, the Springboks. As the reigning World Champions, with three World Cup victories to their name in 1995, 2007, and 2019, the Springboks are gearing up for another intense competition.
To prepare for this prestigious event, the training ground at The Rugby Club Toulonnais has undergone significant renovations, including the installation of Hatko Hybridgrass which will be a vital asset for the Springboks’ preparations. Once the Rugby World Cup France 2023 concludes, The Rugby Club Toulonnais will resume their regular training on this upgraded campus.
Today marks a significant milestone as the Springboks team conducts its first training session on French soil, right here on this hybrid turf. In the midst of a challenging and highly competitive World Cup, the quality of the training field plays a crucial role in the team’s quest for excellence.
Hatko Hybridgrass stands out as the optimal solution for rugby. Its reinforced surface offers exceptional support during scrums, surpassing the performance of natural turf by preventing divots and localized wear. Additionally, the pitch’s firmness allows for a faster and more dynamic game of rugby, contributing to an exciting and engaging experience for players and fans alike.
One of the key advantages of Hatko Hybridgrass is its ability to provide players with extended hours of play, while simultaneously reducing the risk of injuries. This is made possible by the consistently stable surface it offers, ensuring that players can focus on their skills and tactics with confidence.
As the Springboks embark on their journey to defend their title and make history once again, they can rely on the superior quality and performance of Hatko Hybridgrass to help them reach the pinnacle of their game. This cutting-edge turf is not just a surface; it’s a critical part of the Springboks’ strategy to conquer the Rugby World Cup 2023 in France.
