Hockey Hit-a-thon on TigerTurf

By admin on January 8, 2017

TigerTurf were approached by a parent of a North Harbour Under 13 Girls Collier Hockey Team player.  The team was competing in the finals of their competition in Wellington and wanted to do something different to help raise the funds to pay for the travel and the event.  

The idea of a 24 hour Hit-A-Thon was developed.  The players on the team, in a rostered sequence, would see how many times they could hit it in 24 hours. Sponsorship was around this event.

Mark, who was organising the fundraising event says, "I approached Tiger Turf to see if they would loan us a piece of turf for the event. After the initial consultation, about 4 weeks before the event was planned to take place, Melissa Cowie, my point of contact at TigerTurf was able to tell me that the management had agreed to donate the use of some turf and that they would cut TigerTurf logos into the turf as their way of producing their company's promotion of the event.

The enthusiasm, production quality and generosity of the donation made the event very satisfying and easy to run for me. I used a trailer to transport the turf from the factory and the binding tape supplied was perfect for the site Joining and installation. The instructions and support of the product were exemplary.

By asking early enough and explaining the idea to the sales person, I was able to achieve the event in a controlled and purposeful way. Thanks for the help TigerTurf. Your product put us on the map with the NZ 24 Hit Record of 83,580 hits in 24 hours."
