Hervey Bay Hockey has a TigerTurf WETT Pro pitch at last, after years of planning, and hours of work by volunteers. Right now, the club can’t wait for the hockey season to get under way.
The Hervey Bay Hockey Association lobbied for 12 years for funding to construct a synthetic grass hockey field. With the funding in hand, the Association undertook the construction of the base with the help of many keen members, so when it came to deciding what surface they should put down they wanted to be sure they installed the very best. A major benefit was the reassurance gained from the knowledge that TigerTurf, as part of the Royal TenCate group, was in a position to support their choice of the WETT Pro product with meaningful warranties and financial support. TenCate is, amongst other things, the top producer of synthetic yarn for sports turfs throughout the world.
The club was also very impressed with the playing qualities of the surface, something that was reaffirmed after they received favourable reviews from a player who had played on the WETT Pro surface at the 2014 Oceania Series in New Zealand With this in mind, the Hervey Bay Hockey Association felt confident in choosing the WETT Pro surface.
The Hervey Bay Club is immensely proud of its wonderful synthetic hockey pitch, and like the fact that it features the same colours as the 2014 Hockey World Cup field at The Hague.
