Abstract/Contents:Describes several studies conducted regarding field usage and field conditions. Reports that "undrained or basic drained fields that rely upon the nature of the local soil for drainage could support 1-2 hours per week of adult play (50-80 games per season)," while slit-drained fields "can accommodate 6 hours adult play per week (95-125 events per season)," and sand cap or suspended water table fields "can accommodate 8-9 hours of adult use per week."
