I recently got my front lawn done in artificial grass from a company called Verde - it was reasonable and looks great they have a list of suppliers and information on what type of grass is good for different sports on their website - artificial grass - It honestly isn't as expensive as you would think

last summer kids at the playground did sawdust on dry grass slope, they said it worked well and they got enough speed to hit a rail and box. I'd think sawdust on old carpet would work better.

Default artificial grass

Artificial turf is a surface of synthetic fibers made to look like natural grass. It is most often used in arenas for sports that were originally or are normally played on grass. However, it is now being used on residential lawns and commercial applications as well. The main reason is maintenance—artificial turf stands up to heavy use, such as in sports, and requires no irrigation or trimming. Domed, covered, and partially covered stadiums may require artificial turf because of the difficulty of getting grass enough sunlight to stay healthy. But does have its downside: limited life, periodic cleaning requirements, petroleum use, toxic chemicals from infill, and some heightened health and safety concerns.

Do not use fake grass. The points of the "blades" slow you down a lot. It is what my friend and I have tried for our summer ramp. Look in to a produce called "Powderpak". It is expensive but they sell in small volume. It would have been about $200 for what I want for our ramp. If that is too much then look for low pile looped carpet. It slides far better because the fibers loop and don't come to a point like the grass.
That is the first try with fake grass. We made the ramp higher and used lube but it still sucks. Since then my friend has gotten a dog and his yard now has dog crap in it so the ramp hasn't been used since neither of us want dog poo on our boots.
