Bucklands Beach Primary School has a splendid new TigerTurf multi-sport turf with a winning combination of playing qualities that meet the performance standards of both the English Netball Association and the FIH.
TigerTurf managed the entire building
process, beginning with the removal
of trees and cricket nets, before
constructing a sturdy, free-draining
dynamic base to support the high
performance Trophy sports surface.
Completed with a new fence and
concrete edging, the turf is permanently
marked up in colours according to each
sport. The bright green court contrasts
with the lighter TigerTurf Summer Envy
44 XWR lawn – a soft, dry, durable
surface around the court for supporters
to sit on during games.
Bucklands Beach Primary now has an attractive, multi-purpose dry court for use all year round, a remarkable improvement on the wet, unused area of school grounds it once was.
As school rolls swell, no school can afford to have unusable areas within its grounds. As well as being functional, the new sports turf encourages more children to participate in sport, enjoying all the advantages of being active and part of a team.
After three years of planning and fundraising, the school was proud to invite Maurice Williamson, the local MP, to open the new TigerTurf multi-sport court.
The occasion was celebrated with an inaugural netball game and a gala day that was enjoyed by the entire school community.
