What are WR22 Compliant artificial grass pitches?

All artificial grass pitches that host ‘contact’ rugby union must be tested upon installation and then retested every two years to comply with World Rugby Regulation 22. 

WR22 compliance is recorded as ‘yes’ or ‘no’ and if compliant the next WR22 test due date is also provided.

The WR22 status of all artificial grass pitches was last updated to reflect their status as at 31/03/2022.

Please note annual audit cycles, or the inclusion of new artificial grass pitches, may provide a more recent record for an individual facility.
