D1 Chooses XGrass as Athletic Surfacing Supplier
XGrass, the leading supplier of recreational surfacing, is honored to be teaming up with D1 Sports Training. After recent successful installations, D1 has chosen XGrass to provide and install synthetic turf and weight-room rubber surfacing for future locations. XGrass was selected for its knowledgeable staff, Total Service guarantee, and reliable Performx series of turf. Performx offers durable fibers, customized design, and advanced technology only available through XGrass.
“We are excited about our partnership with our rep, Jimmy Weekley, and XGrass as a supplier. XGrass outfitted our Orlando location and it looks and performs great,” states D1 Founder/Owner Will Bartholomew. The D1 Orlando location is co-owned by Tim Tebow and Chipper Jones. XGrass installed 13,500 square feet of high-performance synthetic field grass and 7,000 square feet of athletic rubber flooring at this facility and will offer highly customized options for future D1 locations.
XGrass’ artificial turf delivers superior performance for multi-use and high-use fields. The fiber XGrass utilizes resists splitting, which is the main culprit in premature wear on fields, providing D1 athletes with a durable training surface. Designed to twist when played on instead of lying flat, XGrass’ fiber will retain evenness, maintain integrity, and hold infill better than monofilament yarns.
The athletic rubber flooring provided by XGrass is made from recycled rubber and withstands the rigors of athletic training day in and day out. With the resilient XGrass turf and rubber surfaces, D1 can replicate top college and pro training environments – ultimately helping athletes attain their goals.
“D1 is second to none when it comes to athletic training facilities and their continued efforts to promote healthy lifestyles for not only athletes, but people in all walks of life,” states Jimmy Weekley, Regional Sales Manager for XGrass. “XGrass is honored and excited to be a part of the D1 team. Both of our organizations are young, dynamic, and growing – and both supply customized solutions for our customers.”
Backed by three generations of experience, XGrass is the most revolutionary and fastest growing recreational surfacing company in North America. Striving to raise standards in product engineering, innovation, installation, and recycling, XGrass is a family-owned company with regional representation that ensures attention to detail before and after installation. The company serves the United States and Canada with synthetic turf, rubber surfacing, and court tile products through its corporate sales team, distribution network, and independent dealers.
