With incredibly efficient water and resource management, effective drainage, and a low impact, world-class surface for players – hockey on the Hibiscus Coast is leading the world to sustainable high-performance hockey systems.
TigerTurf WETT Pro installed over Tencate Ecocept forms the most technically advanced eco-sensitive hockey system in the world. Hockey Hibiscus Trust selected our top hockey system, because it complies with its strategy of sustainable development.
TigerTurf WETT Pro system has been tested to current FIH (Federation International Hockey) global standards Providing longer life expectancy than any other product on the market, TigerTurf has developed the WETT Pro surface using advanced fibre technology exclusive to TigerTurf. The unique texturised monofilament yarn ensures a grain-free playing surface which means the ball and stick travels smoothly in all directions.
TigerTurf WETT Pro has proven to be durable even in constant use throughout the year and has the longest playing life of any performance sports turf currently on the international market.

Metro Park Hockey and Multi-Sport pitches
This outstanding eco-sensitive hockey pitch is the triumph of Hockey Hibiscus Trust’s ten-year plan to provide local hockey players with their own international hockey pitch.
As part of this entirely new facility, TigerTurf has also constructed a specific 5-a-side hockey field which also includes clear, permanent markings for three full-sized futsal fields, all edged by a concrete rebound wall with goals built into the fence line.
The next stage has been planned to include a multi-sport area with a long jump, tennis wall, volleyball, and playground. The sports centre is intended for hockey, futsal, general community sporting activities, and play, as well as community events such as birthday parties, casual family groups, and business sports teams.
