Beach Haven Leisure Centre

Auckland, New Zealand

Auckland Council plans to increase the use of local sport facilities with the installation of multi-sport surfaces at community sports centres.  Beach Haven Leisure Centre has been upgraded with TigerTurf’s Advantage surface providing the ultimate solution for multi-sports: tennis, hockey and futsal.  Now that’s a winning combination!

The Auckland Council plans to increase the use of local sport facilities with the installation of multi-sport surfaces at community sports centres. This will encourage more participation in sports and the efficient use of existing facilities.

When it was time to resurface the existing tennis courts at the Beach Haven Leisure Centre, TigerTurf was asked to install a new tennis surface that would not only be perfect for tennis but also suitable to accommodate hockey and futsal.

The plan was put into action at Beach Haven with multi-sport surfaces, TigerTurf Advantage, a popular surface for tennis, is a durable turf that performs well for many sports. Extremely resilient, it takes spin and offers excellent grip throughout years of heavy use. It has been tested to ITF standards and is classed as a medium-to-fast surface.

A 5mm pad  was installed beneath the playing surface to provide longer lasting cushioning, absorb impact from falls and to avoid stress on joints.  This does not have a big impact on ball bounce, and extends the use of the facility to include high impact sports

The existing courts at Beach Haven Tennis Club had poor drainage, resolved by TigerTurf during the renovation of the courts.

Fences were adjusted to suit the various sports codes, enabling the area to be used for several different sports, and the existing lights will keep locals playing sports well after the sun goes down, throughout the year.
