LAKE FOREST, CA / ACCESSWIRE / November 30, 2016 / XFit Brands, Inc. (XFTB), a global supplier of Fitness, Sports Surface, and MMA equipment sold worldwide whose brands include Throwdown, Transformations, EnviroTurf and GlideBoxx, today announced that it has completed its first installation of an EnviroTurf Sports Surface, shortly after the acquisition in October of this year.
The EnviroTurf brand, which is part of the newly formed Sports and Surfaces Division of XFit Brands, became part of the Company in late October and is working on a number of high potential projects totaling in excess of $20 million in revenue over the next 12 months. The Division completed its first installation at Belhaven University in Jackson, Mississippi, within 30 days post acquisition.
The Belhaven University Bowl is a $4 million dollar project in the heart of the campus which features an EnviroTurf sports training surface that was designed, developed and installed for the Belhaven University Blazer Football, as well as the men’s and women’s Soccer teams. This multi-use field is EnviroTurf’s most advanced sports training installation.
On the Belhaven surface installation, we emplaced a proprietary fibrillated turf with durable polyurethane backing. The center of the field features a custom inlaid Belhaven Blazers logo spanning fifty-seven feet, and we also sourced and installed the goal-post end-zone uprights. In addition, we installed special 100 oz turf on the perimeter hill surrounding the end of the field for University fans to have a special viewing area. Additionally, below the field, EnviroTurf installed their most extensive water drainage system that is embedded within its proprietary base system and has the capacity to drain over 15 feet of water an hour.

Jim Bateman, President of the Sports and Surfaces Division XFit Brands, Inc., commented, “We were truly blessed to be awarded this opportunity to build the Belhaven University Bowl. I know we have one of the best reputations for quality and delivery in the industry, but experience and track record is one thing, execution is another. Our EnviroTurf crew was highly efficient in delivering this project. I am proud of our team, they did another superb, on-time/as-promised job for the University.”
