Tournaments for Turf
The Fairfax County Park Authority is dedicated to providing superior recreational opportunities for an ever-changing 1.1 million resident community with diverse backgrounds and interests. A 2004 Needs Assessment identified a deficit of 95 rectangular fields to meet the growing population in our county. In response, the Park Authority invested in the conversion of 48 natural grass fields to synthetic turf fields which significantly increased access and field capacity, improved playing conditions for user groups and reduced maintenance requirements and costs.
For the community to continue to enjoy the high quality field experience, it is time to address the turf replacement costs required to maintain these state-of-the-art athletic fields. While committed to provide and maintain these fields, limited funding is available. Proceeds from tournaments will support the county's synthetic turf replacement reserve.
Watch for future Tournaments For Turf events. Sponsorship opportunities to be listed as tournaments are scheduled. For additional information, email or call 703-324-8759.
