The children at Huntly West don’t want to go home! And no wonder, with two bright new TigerTurf courts to play on.

The Huntly West School Story

The Huntly West School Story

“We are very pleased with the design and the final product. All communication was clear and precise, and the timeline was maintained throughout the project,” the principal of Huntly West Primary School said regarding the recent installation of two TigerTurf multi-sport courts.
Outdoor Activities

Outdoor Activities

The school needed two full-size courts,
with a safe, all-weather surface, which
would revitalise the school centre and
encourage children to play together
outdoors. The new multi-sports courts
would also be used by the community,
encouraging closer interaction with local
sport teams.

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

Huntly West Primary School had a problem common to many schools

• dull grey concrete
• cracked, uneven surface
• unsafe and uninspiring for playtime activities
• well past brightening anyone’s day

TigerTurf assessed the site and listened to the school’s ideas, contributing suggestions arising from our experience of successful school sports projects

• The TigerTurf team firstly patched the cracked, uneven concrete base to render a level, safe playing surface.
• Then the team laid the fresh green and terracotta TigerTurf Trophy surface, marked in clear white for netball, basketball, and hockey.
• We installed new basketball and netball posts, padding them for safety and personalising them with the school’s name – a popular feature of our installations.

No longer drab and boring, and no more grazed knees and hands, or impact injuries from falling onto concrete – the playground is much more fun.

Now there’s a new problem. The new sports turf is a child magnet at the end of the day. The school now must roster on staff to supervise children after the last bell!
