Bright, fresh TigerTurf tennis courts and a synthetic hockey turf training facility have replaced the damaged, worn tennis courts at Rotorua Boys’ High School – together, the school and TigerTurf have given the boys a sporting advantage for the next two decades.
Rotorua Boys’ High School asked
TigerTurf to rejuvenate the school’s
existing tennis courts, which had become
slippery and dangerous with cracked,
broken surfaces. We were also asked to
increase the useable space around the
court area and open it up for more tennis
courts and a hockey pitch.
TigerTurf Trophy is an excellent artificial turf surface for both sports. A sand dressed hockey turf, synthetic tennis and netball surface, Trophy is tested to FIH National standards, certified ITF Fast, and meets English Netball certification.
Trophy is ideal for hockey, tennis, netball and multi-sports for schools and clubs, as well as for home tennis courts. TigerTurf removed the surfaces of the existing 3 tennis courts, replaced the fencing, and deconstructed some of the golf driving bays.
Then the exciting part began. We installed six high quality TigerTurf tennis courts and a half size hockey training pitch. The damaged, unusable old courts were history, being transformed into a versatile and durable multi-sport all-weather facility that will be in play for another 20 years.
The boys at Rotorua Boys’ High School now have superb turf tennis courts that will encourage the development of their tennis skills all year round, and some tough competitive play. The hockey training pitch has been eagerly awaited by the school’s keen hockey players, who can now train for many more hours to improve their ball and stick skills on a safe, high performance surface.
Best of all, the turf surfaces look fantastic all the time, needing only minimal care, so the groundsman is especially pleased.
