Gen 2 - multi-sport fields and courts

Ensuring a sports facility is sustainable is often crucial to its funding and long-term success, whilst for others, maximising the use of available space is the key to increasing sport’s provision in a neighbourhood. These trends are increasingly making the concept of multi-sports facilities attractive to those investing and funding community and education sports.  However, not all sports can be played on the same types of surface and a significant factor in the long-term success of a facility is ensuring it caters for sports that can be satisfactorily played on the same surface.  

Working with tennis and netball, the FIH has developed the Gen 2 concept.  Gen 2 describes the types of playing surface and line marking layouts that allow community versions of the sports to be played on full-size hockey fields or blocks of tennis/netball courts.
