Fantastic! Hockey, basketball, tennis and netball teams love their sport on the new TigerTurf multisport playing surface at Broadlands School. Graeme Taylor, Principal
TigerTurf Trophy was chosen for its versatility
as a multi-sport turf and play surface. Its
durability, bright colours and superb playing
qualities make it an excellent sports turf for
schools, clubs and community facilities. A
sand-dressed surface tested to FIH national
standards, it is ideal for hockey, tennis and
other ball sports.
The fresh green synthetic turf was installed over the existing asphalt surface, and marked up for several sports in brightly coloured lines. Our TigerTurf consultant spent time listening to the school’s requirements before advising that TigerTurf Trophy was the right turf for the students’ needs.
As so often, rain added to the fun during the installation process. However, we are used to that and the process was well managed throughout, to the school’s relief. The site preparation was thorough, to provide a long-lasting sports turf on which the students could safely develop their sports skills. The installation team kept fine-tuning the details until they’d got the playing surface just right.
The school appreciated the excellent communication they experienced with TigerTurf, the willingness to listen and make the changes needed to give Broadlands a high performing sports surface. Graeme Taylor commented, “TigerTurf’s service was great throughout the project.”
The students had plenty to say: “Good to play on,” said Lewis, year 6. “Better now, because we can play hockey on it and we don’t get hurt,” added Keaton, year 5. And Paige, year 6, was happy too: “Very good, because we can play our sports better now.”
In rain, frost or drought, the TigerTurf playground maintains a safe, reliable surface that absorbs all the energy that keen young players bring to their game.
