Manly Bowling Club backs its future with an all-weather TigerTurf TigerWeave synthetic green. The new TigerWeave green at Manly Bowling Club has been a resounding success, its handsome, professional finish contributing to the charm of this long-established bowling club. Manly Bowling Club decided the time had come to replace its natural grass green with a TigerWeave bowling green. With the addition of this game-changing green to its facilities, the club can host international and national tournaments, maintain a reliable timetable for its members and hold evening matches for business house teams and social clubs in the Manly community.
A natural grass green, though beautiful, is expensive to maintain at the standard needed for tournaments all year. Even the best natural greens lack the features of the modern technical playing surfaces required for national and international level matches. Bowling clubs particularly value the longer playing hours and consistent performance of the synthetic bowling greens even in adverse conditions.
TigerTurf managed the complete rebuild for the Manly Bowling Club, removing the existing grass green before constructing effective drainage within the new base system to support the high performance of the TigerWeave green. The crushed rock sub-base was laser-levelled and stabilised with an application of free-draining TigerBond silicate to prevent any movement of loose material. The comfort pad routinely installed beneath TigerWeave provides a more pleasant playing experience and extends the performance of this highly technical green.
The comfort pad routinely installed beneath TigerWeave provides a more pleasant playing experience and extends the performance of this highly technical green. We laid the woven playing surface over the underlay, installed new plinths and grass in the ditches around the green and cleared the area, presenting the new green at our usual high standard of professional finish.
The magnificent TigerWeave green was ready for the Manly Club players to enjoy their first game on a world-leading, specialised synthetic bowling green at their own club.
TigerWeave is a highly technical bowling surface frequently requested by clubs who have played on a this green elsewhere and would like their own club to enjoy the same benefits. Playing on a TigerWeave surface introduces bowlers to the advantages of these amazing, specialised bowling greens.
With Tiger Weave being the chosen surface for the Australian Championships at Merimbula for the past few years, followed by the Dandenong Bowling Club becoming the new venue for the Australian Championships on its own TigerWeave green, the Manly Bowling Club committee had an easy decision in asking TigerTurf to build this top-rated TigerWeave green.
