What Are the Dimensions of a Turf Jugger Field?

By Paige Cerulli Created: September, 2022

Straight out of Blood of Heroes or The Salute of the Jugger, the sport of jugger is gaining popularity in the United States. This fast-paced game is a college and university hit, and jugger leagues are even cropping up across the country. If you would like to start a nugger team or league in your area, then it’s important to start with an appropriately sized playing field.

Dimensions Of A Jugger Field

Creating a jugger playing field is relatively simple, and you can make elements like field lines and goals with common items you can find around the house.

When it comes to the field dimensions, you will need a flat field space measuring 90 feet by 40 feet. The ends of the field are trapezoids, with the baseline measuring 12 feet wide.

Dimensions: 90 ft. x 40 ft.

The Quick Circle is located in the center of the field and should measure 10 feet in diameter.

You will need to mark the field edges with either rope or field paint. The goals should consist of plastic cups, and you will also need a heavy ball to sit within the Quick Circle.

There are additional field lines that should be marked, including the baseline and the startline, which is 30 feet from the startline.

As you design the field, it’s helpful to be familiar with the game rules. Players will need a variety of weapons consisting of swords, daggers, shields, long swords, and spears.

You can create these weapons using PVC piping that you cover in padding and grip tape. Consider creating weapons in two colors to make it easy to tell the teams apart.

Tips for Creating Your Jugger Field

The following tips can help to ensure that your jugger field is a success.

Start with the Right Surface



While you can use an existing field to create your jugger field, there are some downsides to using real turf. If you experience inclement weather before or during a practice or tournament, your playing surface may quickly become unusable.

Grass is slick when wet, and if you receive too much rain, you will be dealing with a muddy field. The field may become unusable, forcing you to reschedule.

Real turf also requires plenty of maintenance. You will need to worry about weeding, fertilizing, watering, and mowing the field, all of which require time and money.

You may see better results from using an artificial sports turf. This sports turf can be used both indoors and outdoors, so you can transform nearly any space into your new jugger field.

When you use artificial turf, you don’t have to worry about the maintenance that real turf requires. As a result, you can save time and money and you don’t have to worry about adding extra work onto your maintenance team’s responsibilities.

Artificial turf also creates an attractive addition to your facility year-round. There’s no concern about mud, discolored areas, or divots, and your field remains usable, even after rain.

If you decide to use artificial turf, you will have control over everything from the turf color to the pile height. You can select a product that delivers the specific performance that you’re looking for.

Some artificial turf products feature a padding on the underside that helps to absorb shock and reduce the repetitive impacts that athletes’ joints face. The padding creates a surface that is more comfortable for athletes, and it can help to prevent pain, allowing athletes to practice and play for longer periods.

Consider Your Location



It’s also important to carefully consider the location of your field. If locating the field outside, look for a spacious area that is easily accessible.

At the same time, make sure that you choose a location that isn’t the low point of a property. Any areas that slope down toward your field may channel runoff water onto the field, creating drainage issues.

If you suspect that your Jugger team will become highly popular, you may want to add enhancements like field lights or spectator seating later on. Choose a location with enough space to accommodate these elements.

Be sure to also think about how your location might help to attract new players. A field in a high-traffic location is sure to gain attention, and it could help to spread awareness about your team and the Jugger sport.

Such a location could be valuable, since it might help you to recruit new team members.

Think About An Indoor Field

If you are using artificial turf, you could design a field for indoor use. Indoor fields offer several distinct advantages.

If you live in an area that often experiences inclement weather, an indoor field could help to minimize practice and competition cancellations. This strategy can maximize your income and the return on your investment in your field.

By using vinyl tape, you can temporarily install your artificial turf to create your field. This design allows you to remove the turf as needed, so the area can function as a multipurpose space, remaining a versatile area for other athletic needs.
