Sports Turf Company, a sports facility construction and specialty surfacing company, announced the completion of the AstroTurf Rhino Field and Rekortan Full Pour Track System at the Wetumpka Sports Complex in Wetumpka, Ala. The completed field and track will host Wetumpka High School football games and track meets, as well as community athletic events.
“This complex has been highly anticipated by the community for a long time, and we’re honored to play our part in making it happen,” said Sports Turf Company President Todd Wiggins. “This facility is a great place for the Wetumpka-area community to come together and cheer on its local athletes for years to come.”
Sports Turf began work on the project in early 2020 for the construction of the artificial turf football field and eight-lane track at the Wetumpka Sports Complex. The full scope of the project includes artificial turf base construction, artificial turf installation, track base construction, asphalt paving, inside and outside curbs,
and synthetic track surface installation and stripping.
“We have been eagerly awaiting this new facility to open, and we are so excited to see it and for our local athletes to utilize it,” said Wetumpka High School Athletic Director Tim Perry. “This entire facility will be huge in growing our athletics program and bringing our community together.”
The stadium field at Wetumpka Sports Complex will primarily serve as the Indian’s home field but will also host different athletic events.
AstroTurf’s Rhino Blend synthetic turf system was installed for high-level performance and durability. The new field creates a space that can be used year-round for multiple sports and in all weather conditions.
The new eight-lane track will allow Wetumpka High School to host track meets, making the facility the second site in the region to do so. The stadium track features Rekortan M99 synthetic track surfacing, which can stand up to high wear and tear.
