Tauranga Girl’s College

Tauranga, New Zealand

The striking new TigerTurf Multi-Sport facility at Tauranga Girls’ College includes high performance acrylic netball courts guaranteed to produce champions.

Tauranga Girls’ College wanted a modern, well equipped sports centre to give all sportswomen, from junior teams, recreational sports and elite teams the chance to be the best they could.

The existing asphalt courts were drab and uninviting, the surfaces cracked and uneven, and now becoming slippery and dangerous. Some serious remedial work was needed to bring them back into play.

This gave the school the opportunity to think about what the students really needed, and how it could best accommodate so many diverse sporting enthusiasms.

The school had a clear goal in mind: a bright, attractive comprehensive sports centre to engage all the students in at least one sport. As netball and tennis are popular with the girls, TigerTurf also suggested a couple of high performance Mapei acrylic courts for netball and tennis, coated in a 4mm high-density rubber surface.

The four clear blue TigerTurf Advantage multi-sport courts have bright green extensions that allow hockey and other sports to use the courts too. The basketball teams have their own asphalt court, with an even, consistent surface marked in clear white and ready for play all year.

The bright blue Mapei acrylic surfaces have been applied over new asphalt bases, which are durable and provide a good bounce on an even surface.

TigerTurf managed the entire project for Tauranga Girls’ College, including the building of perimeter fences, drainage, concrete footpaths, drinking fountains, in-ground goals for netball, basketball,fixed tennis nets and mobile hockey goals.

The school achieved everything it had hoped for when it came to us. The brilliant new multi-sports centre and high performance Mapei courts will successfully host top level inter-school tournaments, encourage the girls to enjoy physical education curriculum activities all year, and provide enviable practice facilities for the school’s elite tennis and netball teams.
