Mini 'speed bumps' PJ hockey turf
These pictures taken at the MBPJ hockey stadium say it all.
The mini 'speed bumps' could pose a serious problem as the venue hosts the TNB Malaysian Hockey League.
According to the fixtures, Selangor will play RMAF Rajawali in a league match at the stadium at 5pm tomorrow.
Players and team managers believe the air pockets are caused by the recent downpour. As the stadium is located on lower ground, water from the surrounding area tends to flood the venue.
Even the lighting at the stadium could be upgraded to ensure they meet the international body's requirements.
The condition of the turf here reminded me of how the Ministry of Education turf at Pantai once looked like.
By the way, here are some of my previous articles regarding hockey turfs in the country:
