Astro

(Sport: Field Hockey)

Definition

Short for Astra Turf (that's trademarked), the artificial playing surface used for most senior hockey matches in place of grass fields. Astro-Turf ensures a consistent and level playing surface, particularly during the winter months when grass fields could be unplayable. Astra-Turf fields are one reason for the gradual eclipse of Asian nations at international level.
