The mist and rainbows of the rugged hills and dense bush of the Coromandel Peninsula denote a damp climate that disrupts
timetables for school sports. But no longer!
The Coromandel Area School Story

The Coromandel Area School Story

The two TigerTurf sports courts at the
Coromandel Area School are ready for
play all year round, with a safe, clean
playing surface that performs consistently
throughout all but the very worst wet

TigerTurf Trophy

TigerTurf Trophy is a dressed surface designed for
multi-sport use in schools and clubs. It is excellent for
hockey* and tennis and meets the exacting standards
of an FIH National category sand dressed field as well
as being ITF fast paced certified.
It also provides consistent performance for sports
such as basketball, netball and in playgrounds, as well
as a brilliant multi-purpose surface suitable for general
Gym use.

Remarkable Improvement

TigerTurf first started talks with the school back in 2007. After 10 years of planning and fundraising, and with the backing of the Thames City District Council, the courts were completed before the onset of another wet winter.

Sports practices, competitions and PE classes can go ahead as planned. And, even better, the courts can be used for several different sports and activities.

Key considerations for the choice of Surface

The type of surface chosen was not made lightly. The surfaces needed to have the performance attributes required for several sports and be suitable for community use. Line marking were specifically required for tennis and netball. It also needed to be durable and easy to maintain.

TigerTurf Trophy, a multi-sport surface designed with schools in mind, met all these criteria with the added bonus of ITF ‘fast’ certification and having English Netball accreditation.

A solution for the whole Community

The versatile multi-sport courts come into their own in remote areas, serving the school and community with a sports centre to be proud of. As the first turf sports facility north of Thames, the courts will be busy with social and competitive sports throughout the year.

The Coromandel courts are magnificent;  the pleasing effect of the olive green set in fresh green and contrasting with the  deep sea blue edging makes line calls much easier. The clean, crisp white tennis lines gleam, while the bright yellow netball markings are easily read by players.

TigerTurf completed the picture with  spanking new tennis posts and nets along with new netball posts and baskets – the new sports courts are ready for action! The courts were opened and blessed at a  ceremony held at the beginning of July.
