Our Shaw Sportexe fields are 5 and 6 years old, respectively, and have held up very well.

“The Hampton Roads Soccer Complex is a non-profit facility that serves three separate soccer clubs in Virginia Beach, VA. When it was decided to provide two synthetic turf fields for matches and training, it was extremely important to make sure we were fiscally responsible and provided a reliable product for the clubs. We found all of that by working with Shaw Sportexe. The installed fields were finished ahead of schedule, exactly as contracted, and played great! The best addition has been the ability to offer almost unlimited training throughout the year. “

Karen Knott, Administrator

Hampton Roads Soccer Council


“We knew that a project of this magnitude would be a huge undertaking. Shaw Sportexe has far exceeded our expectations in all regards. They have done a tremendous job with the installation and we are very pleased with the Shaw Sportexe turf system chosen.

The service and support we have received from Shaw Sportexe has been tremendous, we couldn’t be happier.”
