Case Studies

Pinehurst School

The TigerTurf Evo Pro multi-sport facility at Pinehurst School in Auckland has had enormously positive responses. The new turf is already encouraging the students to participate in more sports, just as the school hoped.

Better Opportunities

Better Opportunities

Pinehurst School, like many other schools, was under pressure to extend its sports facilities in order to give students opportunities to participate in many sports. At the same time, with limited space, the school needed to make the best use of areas for sports and PE activities.
High Performance Surface

High Performance Surface

TigerTurf Evo Pro meets all these needs,
and more. Our top of the line multi-sport
turf, it is recognised as a superb hockey
surface with national accreditation by the
Federation of International Hockey (FIH). It
also meets the criteria for the All England
Netball Association (AENA) – a major
consideration, as over 120 students play
netball on Saturdays, and practise during
the week.
TigerTurf Evo Pro is a fantastic surface
for tennis too. Being extremely durable, it
is excellent for club and school use, and
coveted by keen tennis players for home
courts.

TigerTurf Evo Pro

TigerTurf’s Evo Pro is manufactured from our most
advanced texturised monofilament fibres making it
our premium multi-sport surface for schools and clubs.
It is a sand dressed system that is deal for hockey,
tennis and multi-sports.
For hockey, it can be played on either wet or dry and is
certified FIH National. It has an ITF fast pace rating and
is designed to meet the highest level of performance
standards in both hockey and tennis.

Remarkable Improvement

All sports activities can take place in one sports centre

The school’s existing worn, slippery acrylic courts had served students well for tennis and netball in dry weather, but were not suitable for other sports or PE classes. Our TigerTurf Business Development Manager suggested that a full-size hockey pitch could be installed by extending  the base and adding a high density pad supporting the existing courts.

Pinehurst School now has 6 netball courts, 6 tennis courts and a full-size hockey pitch for play up to an international  level. As a bonus, this versatile surface is excellent for other sports and general PE activities too.

Multi-sports centres reduce costs for schools and clubs

With only one set of minimal running costs, the school no longer has to hire a  hockey pitch for practices and games. For schools and community facilities, Evo Pro is unparalleled as a multi-sport surface that maximises the use of shared sports facilities.

It also enables clubs to boost  funds by hiring the venue, by increasing the number of members and by sharing
the costs of the facility.
