With the installation of the TigerTurf Evo Pro multi-sport surface at Mahurangi College, the school again has an amazing TigerTurf sports surface, giving the tennis, futsal and hockey teams a worldclass training facility.
A TigerTurf shock pad laid beneath the
entire sports facility protects the players’
joints and limbs from impact injuries, and
will extend the playing life of the Evo Pro
surface. This is the most durable multi-sport
surface on the market, and the shock pad
maintains the surface at the top of its game.
The Mahurangi College playing fields are often out of action during the winter months, increasing the pressure on all hard surfaces around the school. The new all-weather Evo Pro facility has been designed to cater for hockey, tennis and futsal despite the weather.
Of course, the surface is perfect for PE, as well as providing a level, dry surface throughout the year for other outdoor activities.
This facility has also overcome the poor drainage that had become a problem at the site. Because of the particular yarn characteristics of TigerTurf Evo Pro, the school will not experience the same level of poor drainage.
Hockey is the primary sport played on this pitch, and Evo Pro is the best product for the purpose, also being perfect for Tennis. Evo Pro has a secondary backing for hockey which helps with better tuft lock and higher pile height for better ball roll and playing characteristics.
The school naturally had to keep to its budget, but our long-standing relationship means a great deal to TigerTurf, so we were pleased to offer this wonderful college an upgrade to the best surface available.
The students will benefit from practising and competing on this superb new surface, and that’s the best possible outcome for both Mahurangi College and TigerTurf.
