New Multi-Colour, Multi-Use Playground

New Multi-Colour, Multi-Use Playground

The school was keen to add colour to the campus and the new multi-colour, multi-use playground and court
area is already a hot favourite with the students at Matamata Primary School. In school time, before and after
school, and even during school holidays and weekends, playtime is more fun than ever, with families freely
welcomed to take advantage of the new TigerTurf Trophy tennis, netball and basketball courts.

Bright Colours And Clever Designs

The old asphalt court was worn out by the
passage of time and hundreds of feet and was
ready for an upgrade. The new playground
simmers with adventure and fun, a wonderland
of vivid colours that stimulates imaginative play
and shared games.

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.

Multi-Functional Surface With Many Positives

Get serious about installing safety in school and pre-school playgrounds with TigerTurf’s shock pads

This is now also a safer playground than previously. The TigerTurf construction team excavated the worn grass surface and rubber tiles beneath the play equipment before building a dynamic crushed-rock base for reliable drainage and long-lasting support.

With the addition of our 45 mm TigerPad beneath the surface, the playground now meets the 2 metre fall-height requirements and the students are protected from injuries caused by falls from climbing equipment up to 2 metres high.

TigerTurf’s Trophy synthetic surface is durable, colourful, and multi-functional with many positives for schools

• This durable, versatile surface is available in several bright, cheerful colours.

• Trophy is one of our technical, high performance multi-sport surfaces designed with the playing qualities required for most ball sports and is one of the most popular surfaces we install for schools, clubs and family multi-courts.

• An all-weather surface that provides good traction when wet or dry, Trophy is a clean, fast-draining turf after rain, so students can soon get back to their sports and recreational games after wet weather.

• Because it is a dressed surface, requiring minimal sand to support the turf structure, sand tends not to be carried indoors on  clothing or footwear.

• The students can safely wear their normal footwear on the playground and multisport court, which saves staff the trouble of monitoring shoes and boots throughout the school day.
