Global Elite Standards

Global Elite Standards

TigerTurf has received high praise for the four WETT Pro pitches at the new National Hockey Centre at North Harbour, now the home of the Vantage Black Sticks, who have a vibrantly blue TigerTurf WETT Pro pitch built to Global Elite standards for international tournaments.

Meets FIH Standards For Televised Tournaments

The clear blue TigerTurf WETT Pro surface of the number one pitch complies with the stringent FIH standards for international hockey play. The Lumosa LED lighting
system incorporates LED lights that produce the brighter light required for televising the action on the pitch during international tournaments. We also installed more extensive back netting and run offs than is standard for club hockey in order to meet the FIH international playing standards. North Harbour Hockey’s Turfs 2, 3 and 4
also have new WETT Pro top-level hockey surfaces laid by TigerTurf; each with a deep green playing surface defined subtly, yet clearly, by an attractive olive-green border.

TigerTurf Wett Pro

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.

TigerTurf rubber underlays absorb impact and lift the performance of hockey pitches

All four TigerTurf WETT Pro pitches have been laid over new 10mm rubber underlays to improve the playing performance for skillful players and to relieve impact stress on joints during the long, hard training routines players maintain at this level of competition.

The underlays also extend the life of this outstanding, durable hockey surface and comply with international standards for hockey pitches.

Efficient irrigation and lighting are essential for top hockey pitches and reduce costs

The WETT Pro pitches are irrigated by pop-up canons designed to promote a fast, efficient spread of water without waste.

The Village Green is a verdant, all weather TigerTurf lawn for club events

The TigerTurf Summer Envy landscape lawn on the central ’village green’ provides an attractive, clean, all-weather lawn on which the hockey supporters and community can gather. Set conveniently between all four pitches, the Village Green is the popular hub of this fabulous hockey facility, the luscious green cherry on the cake.
