Abstract/Contents:"Some components of turf surface quality were studied on sports fields. New methods to measure turf height and ball rolling were developed in this study. Turf height is one of the most basic and important components of turf quality. But there had been some hesitation in adopting it as an index of turf characteristics because observational error among researchers can not be ignored. 'Simple turf height meter' was designed to eliminate difference among observers. The distance rolled by the ball is usually measured after rolling a ball down from the slope of 45 degrees. But it was revealed in this study that the rolling distance is longer and the rebound is about half when the angle is 37 degrees instead of 45 degrees. One more apparatus was designed to shoot ball without rolling by using swinging maul. In addition to theses items, soil hardness, Clegg impact value, ball rebound and some other components were measured on some sports fields. And relations among each component were analyzed. Where turf height was low, rolling distance was long. Where Clegg impact value is high, rebound is high. But these relations were not absolute and they were affected by other causes, too."
