St Kevin’s College has a brilliant new TigerTurf multi-sports facility for cricket, hockey, football,
basketball and netball where there was once a single sports surface.
After the previous surface had been lifted, the base was found to be in poor condition too, requiring the construction of a new chip seal base to support our multi-sport surface.
TigerTurf Deluxe cricket turf for multi-use sports centres
A concrete slab was poured to form the base for the new cricket nets at one end of the new sports centre. TigerTurf Deluxe cricket turf was an excellent choice for the batting end of the
Deluxe has long been TigerTurf’s popular high-performance cricket surface, providing fast and true ball bounce on a fully non-directional surface. Innovative retractable
and portable cricket nets were functional additions to this versatile and multi-purpose facility.
The school required a sports facility that would encourage students to try different sports; yet specialised enough to provide high-quality facilities to train the schools elite sports stars.
TigerTurf Advantage for high performance multi-sports facilities
The school required a dedicated court suitable for every level of basketball and netball, to which rotating hoops were added for convenience in setting up the court for play.
TigerTurf Advantage, our most popular multisport turf, was laid over a BSW 10mm shock pad to provide a safe playing surface for all users, reducing the potential impact of falls
and the risk of strain from constant training and competition. Installing a pad beneath the sports surface will augment the playing qualities and longevity of our high-performance sports turfs.
For the football and hockey sports field, St Kevin’s College again recognised the many benefits offered by this outstanding multi-sports surface. For this field, TigerTurf Advantage
was laid over an Alveosport shock pad to form a vertically draining sports system that will soften falls and lift performance for football and hockey. A little softer than the BSW 10mm
shock pad, the Alveosport shock pad provides increased shoe-to-turf grip interaction and greater ball bounce reduction.
The students at St Kevin’s are now able to play safely all year round on their attractive, colourful Advantage sport facility. The top-level teams can carry out a full training programme
to extend their range of skills, while players new to a sport can take part in a regular learning programme in safe playing conditions.
