Creating Magic at Maribyrnong

By admin on November 27, 2016

The completion of the installation at Maribyrnong College in Melbourne, Victoria has been a highlight, both for the kids and staff at Maribyrnong College and the team at TigerTurf who have worked tirelessly over the past 12 months to bring the project to fruition. 

Rob Carroll, Director of Maribyrnong Sports Academy within the College since 2006, had this to say about the new facilities…”My staff and I have travelled throughout Europe and Asia to visit a range of sports schools and training facilities and what we have established here is equal to anything we have seen in a school setting. Tiger Turf has helped us to create a superb training environment for our emerging student athletes and interstate and international visitors are beating a path to our door to view them. The facilities provide a “wow” factor to all who use them and our coaches have provided feedback about the professionalism and intensity of training in such an inspiring environment.  While the facilities are used predominantly by our physical education classes and Sports Academy groups, there is also widespread use by community groups and elite teams.  For instance, several A League Soccer clubs have already accessed the FIFA approved pitch for training and recovery and the AFL regularly conduct talented player sessions at the Academy for the elite U/18 TAC cup pathway on the new surfaces which include in situ shock pads under the synthetics to reduce impact on players.”  

Maribyrnong College is Victoria's only public state-funded Specialist Sports School.  TigerTurf construction Manager Andrew Croxford managed the extensive full build and turf installation which included an outdoor running track, FIH National Standard Wett Dressed hockey pitch, and a TigerTurf MS50 Pro soccer field designed to meet the testing standards of both FIFA 1* and FIFA 2*. 

The project was finished with large areas of the sports campus laid in TigerTurf’s  Envy landscape grass around the sports fields, two cricket practice nets laid with TigerTurf’s Deluxe cricket surface and an Olympic size beach volleyball court laid with genuine sand.
The final result is a state of the art international sporting facility, designed to help Victoria’s sporting talent reach their full potential.
