Outdoor Recreation And Reading

Outdoor Recreation And Reading

What a change has taken place at Te Kowhai School. The new TigerTurf multi-sports courts are marked up for netball and basketball, and bordered by an all-weather landscaped lawn area for outdoor recreation and reading.
Looks Fabulous!

Looks Fabulous!

The school absolutely loves it. It’s at the
front of the school, so our visitors pass
it as they enter the school and it looks
fantastic.

TigerTurf Trophy

TigerTurf Trophy is a dressed surface designed for
multi-sport use in schools and clubs. It is excellent for
hockey* and tennis and meets the exacting standards
of an FIH National category sand dressed field as well
as being ITF fast paced certified.
It also provides consistent performance for sports
such as basketball, netball and in playgrounds, as well
as a brilliant multi-purpose surface suitable for general
Gym use.

A sprinkle of student creativity

A spread of “dull and dangerous”

As we know, all schools need their grounds to be useful and safe all year. The worn, uneven asphalt courts were no fun for the students.

They were neither attractive nor barely functional. And the lawn wasn’t working too well either; muddy and slippery in the winter, spoilt by dry, sparse growth and dust in  the summer, the lawn was unused.

A sprinkle of student creativity

The BOT wanted the school to be bright and fresh, provide better facilities for students and overcome the problems bad weather caused with the natural grass lawns.
The school appointed a student committee to discuss the design of this exciting project with TigerTurf.

The school and the student committee had a good idea of what they wanted, their preferences, and how they’d like to use the areas. TigerTurf also offered suggestions from our depth of experience of what can work really well for schools.

A touch of TigerTurf magic

TigerTurf Summer Envy 35 XWR turned the muddy, redundant lawn into a soft, green landscaped seating area for the students. The Summer Envy 35 XWR is perfect for schools. It is:

• extremely durable for high-use areas

• needs very little maintenance

• remains clean and dry all year around.

The TigerTurf Trophy multi-use courts provide a much brighter, safer court area with line markings for netball, basketball and four square. It is durable and usable in all weather, the Trophy surface is softer and safer – no more wounds from tripping on the hard asphalt courts and the community enjoys the vivid, cheerful courts at the front of the school.
