The Selwyn College Story

The Selwyn College Story

Recently, TigerTurf installed 6 multisport
turfs over the existing dull, worn
asphalt courts that had been used for
generations of netball and tennis players
at Selwyn College.
Time For Change

Time For Change

The College decided that their
keen sports teams deserved some
encouragement in the form of better
facilities. It was time for a change, and
Selwyn College pupils and staff are
delighted with the fresh modern look of
their new courts. The bonus of having
the turf surfaces permanently marked
for tennis, hockey, netball and futsal has
increased the numbers of students who
will be enjoying sport at the school.

TigerTurf Tournament 1000

TigerTurf Tournament 1000 is a medium-pile, sand
filled tennis surface. TigerTurf Tournament 1000 is a
durable, low maintenance tennis surface and has been
one of our most popular tennis surfaces, particularly in
schools, for over 30 years.
It is a medium pile, sand filled, fibrillated surface; hard
wearing, long lasting and designed for clubs and
multi-sport use in schools that have high usage on
their courts.

Resilient, Non-Slip, All Weather Surface

The community has been invited to play on the courts too, by way of a roster run by the school. Previously, community tennis players had practiced on the courts, but now some serious
competition tennis is planned, with the school and community tennis players eager to take part.

TigerTurf Tournament 1000 is our most popular multi-sport synthetic grass surface, having been installed in New Zealand and Australian schools for over 20 years.

A durable medium-to-fast tennis surface, it gives an excellent playing performance for many other sports too,  including hockey, basketball, netball and futsal. It is often used for school athletic tracks to provide a resilient, non-slip, all weather surface.

Nigel Bennetts commented on the commitment of the TigerTurf installation team: “I really felt you did a great job from  the start of the process … we asked a lot of you and you were very helpful., working through and solving minor issues for a great result.”

We really appreciate the excellent working relationship we share with Selwyn College, and look forward to seeing the first tennis tournament for the summer.
