Rodney College chose colourful, all-weather TigerTurf sports turfs to bring two unused areas into play by turning worn, grey, unloved asphalt surfaces into brilliant multi-functional sports areas to inspire a lasting love for sport. The cheerful new sports grounds shimmer with kinetic energy as students set about discovering why TigerTurf Advantage and Trophy multi-sports surfaces are the rock stars of high-performance sports turfs for high schools.
Two TigerTurf multi-sport high-performance sports turfs represent long-term value for Rodney College, opening opportunities for students to experience more sports, with longer playing hours for sports timetables, every day of the year, in all weather. The durability and longevity of the sports surface is a significant factor too, reducing maintenance and replacement costs.
After exploring the possibilities offered for development, the project was defined: to renovate a worn, grey asphalt netball court in the centre of the grounds, and to turn a worn car park into a fantastic new multi-sport pitch introducing new sports for the students to try – Hockey, Tennis and Pickle Ball to name a few.
The complex requirements of each site necessitated clever planning. TigerTurf worked with the school’s project manager on designs that included several ball sports. TigerTurf Advantage and TigerTurf Trophy were selected for their multi-sports and durability qualities, each a good match for the site and function, with advanced technology to give sports teams a responsive, consistent performance.
The TigerTurf team renovated both existing surfaces with base patching and channel drains to produce the free-draining, stable base required for our top sports surfaces.
The old grey asphalt netball court has dawned bright and sunny with a superb all-weather Trophy court surface in a glorious sapphire blue. A top-quality netball and basketball court for class sports and games, for recreational fun, and for more competitive action.
Two colourful clever multi-use sports areas for the students at Rodney College – and they love them.
The TigerTurf Regupol Rubber Shock Pad has been developed for use beneath synthetic turfs with sand or sand with rubber infilled artificial turf surfaces. These technically advanced shock pads are manufactured in Germany specifically to reduce the force of repeated impact on players’ joints and ligaments.
The specialised formula used to produce these outstanding Regupol shock pads uses enormous pressure to bind polyurethane and rubber granules into the most consistent shock pad on the international market. This immense pressure engenders cohesive strength within the structure of the shock pad for consistent long-term performance, allowing the pad to be reused beneath several replacement synthetic turf surfaces as it will provide the same high level of force reduction through years of use.
BSW’s 10mm Regupol shock pad is used as part of our sports turf systems for many sports because the elastic, cushioned under-layers create the best conditions for every sport at every level of performance. It will also extend the life expectancy and high performance of your sports surface and allow players to play harder for longer, safely.
Regupol is resistant to any adverse effects of weather, and will not rot, become brittle or hard over time. It will continue to offer the same high level of elasticity for additional comfort and cushioning.
