Hauraki Plains College get state-of-the-art multi-sports courts

The TigerTurf Advantage multi-sports courts provide a brilliant all-weather surface for several sports. The worn out community netball courts have been transformed into a fantastic multiuse sports facility for the Hauraki Plains College community.

The new TigerTurf Advantage multi-courts bring vibrancy, versatility and many new sports to Hauraki Plains College. In celebration of the new sports centre, a Midlands hockey coach will be giving the school hockey teams some useful tips on their own hockey pitch.

One TigerTurf multi-sport turf adds up to five times more fun

The new multi-sports turf has been permanently and clearly marked for tennis, basketball and netball courts, for futsal, and a superb hockey pitch.

Multi-sports courts cleverly solve the perennial school problems of juggling tight budgets, limited space and the need to provide more choices for the sports curriculum. It also provides a useful allweather, comfortable surface for school play times, assemblies and outdoor summer lessons.

“Originally the courts were used for community netball but became unsafe.It is great that we now have a facility that can be fully enjoyed by the College and community,”

Anne Leonard, spokesperson on behalf of the Hauraki Plains College, appreciates the benefits now enjoyed by the school community.

The old courts were unusable for the majority of the year, with a rough, uneven tarseal surface that became too hot in the summer.

Wet winter weather caused flooding that rendered the courts unplayable for long lengths of time, causing damage that had to be remedied over the summer months.

“Funding for the facility was provided by the college BOT and two Funding Trusts (One Foundation and NZ Community Trust), which has provided the school and community with a fantastic all-weather facility that can be used all year around,” Anne Leonard, the college funding coordinator explained.

Mobile equipment has been purchased with funds gratefully received by the college from The Trillian Trust. A community roster has already been established to make the most of the multi-courts.

“Thanks again to TigerTurf and all the staff who had a hand in our project; we think it is fabulous.”
