TigerTurf TigerWeave

Major improvements over recent years have resulted in synthetic bowling surfaces being accepted by bowlers at the highest level. TigerTurf’s TigerWeave is a non-filled woven surface manufactured by world renowned Greengauge Surfaces Ltd exclusively for TigerTurf. TigerWeave is the ideal surface for bowlers, throughout a 12-month season. To ensure a top quality, low maintenance and fast draining surface, TigerTurf deliver a complete system including site preparation, installation of drainage, sub base construction, application of TigerBond, comfort pad installation, surface installation and post project service and speed testing.

Successful Base Construction And Installation

Our woven, non-filled TigerWeave green is well-known for its smooth, controlled roll, used to advantage by experienced bowlers. The TigerWeave has a pad beneath the surface for comfort underfoot and for perfect draw and speed.

The top quality TigerWeave greens surface has been extremely popular throughout Victoria as a durable, all-weather bowling green accredited to international standards.

Tournament players who have played on our top quality bowling green then pass on the good news to other clubs. No surprise that TigerWeave is the surface most often requested by clubs eager to play regularly on this international star of bowling surfaces.

The project for the Traralgon Bowls Club TigerWeave indoor green began with lifting the existing sand-filled surface, which the club members disposed of themselves.

The TigerTurf team then carried out the full base construction for the woven green  surface over an existing concrete slab. We always install our comfort pad on top of our precisely laser-leveled base and beneath the playing surface. This partnership provides exactly the right degree of support to  maintain this outstanding bowling green at the top of its game.

TigerTurf added the finishing touches with new plinths to stabilise the TigerWeave surface and fresh synthetic grass installed in  the ditch surfaces surrounding the green. Resounding praise applauded the fabulous playing qualities of this surface after the opening of Traralgon Bowls Club new green building. It will continue to please players for over a decade of enjoyable bowls competition.
