The magnificent deep blue TigerTurf WETT Pro hockey pitch at Tauranga Boys’ College replaced
the well-worn, sand-dressed vintage TigerTurf hockey surface laid fourteen years ago. Tauranga
Boys’ Hockey teams are set to excel on their high performance pitch.
The texturised monofilament yarn used for
the WETT Pro hockey surface produces
a playing surface that allows the ball
to travel easily in any direction. Hockey
players can also move their sticks readily
in all directions without the stick catching
or dragging. TigerTurf WETT Pro is FIH
Global certified and meets the highest level
of FIH performance standards.
Did TigerTurf replace the existing rubber shockpad? After lifting the existing turf, the team made some minor repairs to the rubber underlay.
TigerTurf rubber systems are guaranteed to last for the playing-life of two turfs, and this rubber mat has stood the test of time and wear, being in excellent condition for its second turf replacement.
The project manager was pleased to see how well the rubber underlay had stood up to ten years of play during a busy ten year school hockey schedule, and judges it will achieve a third turf replacement without problems. Good news for the school’s budgeting team.
Why did the School choose Tigerturf WETT Pro? TigerTurf WETT Pro is our premium hockey product. Designed to be used as a wet or dry hockey pitch, it will play superbly for longer than any other turf currently on the market.
Tauranga Boys College can easily convert the dry pitch to a wet pitch with a simple ring main and water cannons installation. Magic!
