Newlands Intermediate School

Wellington, New Zealand

Fun and fitness on their new TigerTurf multi-sport facility are now on the timetable year-round for the students of Newlands Intermediate School.

The TigerTurf playing field at Newlands Intermediate School is perfect for football and rugby. The surface is TigerTurf Pinnacle, manufactured from Evolution fibre to produce reliable surface strength and stability.

On this surface, the players are able to get their feet under the ball easily, just as they would if playing on a natural turf. However, unlike natural turf, this surface gives players a safe, consistently high performance all year round, even in wet conditions.

Around the perimeter of the field is a 2-lane running track, so the players can warm up well before the game. The track doubles as a dry, stable side-line area from which the rugby and football supporters can cheer the players on.

The multi-sport courts are permanently marked up for netball, hockey and tennis, encouraging the students to develop their skills throughout winter and summer. TigerTurf Tournament is a versatile surface; the students will be able to participate in many sports and games on a stable, hard wearing surface in damp conditions and drought.

All Turf, our contractor, designed the new facility, built the sub-bases and installed the playing surfaces for Newlands Intermediate School.

Newlands Intermediate has had a problem with the drainage in this area for many years. The muddy, unstable field prevented the students from playing sport for much of the year. All Turf investigated the drainage and designed a comprehensive drainage system that would keep the field in play, even during

wet seasons. The drainage had to accommodate the run-off from the banks that surround the fields, contributing to the flood problem.

All Turf constructed a strong sub-base, incorporating the drainage, which will keep the area stable. The playing surface was installed over the base, and the system is working well now, providing effective drainage and requiring minimal maintenance.

The school wanted to entice the students to be active every day.   And with access to 21st century playing surfaces it is hoped all students will improve their fitness, increase their skill level in a diverse range of sports and develop positive attitudes to physical activity.
