The colourful TigerTurf Tournament multi-sports courts at Hampden Street School in Nelson certainly bring the children out to play, sunshine or rain.
Time for a change; and now the students
love their bright, vibrantly coloured multisport
courts. The tennis courts shine in
blue and white, alongside the warmly
inviting terracotta basketball, netball,
football court, all edged in green turf.
An extremely durable surface, TigerTurf Tournament has been designed to give a high level of performance for several sports. This all-weather sports turf drains and dries quickly after rain, so the courts are ready for the next class to rush out and spring into action.
Reliably non-slip in the wettest conditions, the TigerTurf Tournament courts encourage active children to throw themselves enthusiastically into their games without the cuts and bruises that occur on hard surfaces. They also return to the classroom without the mud that has been part of winter for as long as teachers can remember.
Our TigerTurf agent, Southern Turf in Blenheim, collaborated with Hampden Street School in the design of those popular courts, which include all the sports that children enjoy so much. Now the students can practise before and after school, as well as during the school day.
Just as the school had hoped, the new courts are encouraging the development of social and physical skills, and, above all, better fitness for healthy students.
