Badminton – Grass type

Q: I am putting a badminton court in my backyard. We play serious badminton four times a week for a couple of hours. Is there a grass that can stand that kind of activity? The site receives six hours of full sun daily.

A: Any sports turf needs as much sunshine as it can get in order to repair the damage done by cleats and tennis shoes. Your site doesn’t get full sunshine like bermudagrass prefers but that’s what I recommend you try. TifSport hybrid bermudagrass is used on many playing fields. To help it thrive in your situation, thoroughly prepare the soil bed before you lay the sod. You can get good information on managing any sports field at Athletic Field Management
