Rotorua Hockey lift their game... a lot

TigerTurf’s new WETT Pro hockey surface on the No. 1 turf at Rotorua is deep blue and rich forest green, a superb colour combination welcomed with enthusiasm by the Rotorua Hockey community and visitors. It looks like becoming another stand out attraction for visitors to this vibrant city.

TigerTurf WETT Pro replaced the original TigerTurf 37 irrigated hockey surface. After many years of play on the hockey pitch, Rotorua Hockey wanted to lift its game a little. The club now has an internationally accredited hockey pitch, in a lively combination of bright blue and verdant green that attracts compliments from all visitors to the pitch.

A technically advanced performance turf, WETT Pro is a fast pitch that encourages players to extend their capabilities, allowing free stick movement in any direction, thanks to the grain-free yarn
used in its manufacture. It offers safe traction, without causing grazes when players do throw caution to the wind.

Club members rallied together to lift the old surface; a tough job but one which they tackled with a will and tremendously good humour.

Existing TigerTurf rubber shock pad and irrigation retained.

The existing rubber shock pad that TigerTurf had laid beneath the original TigerTurf 37 pitch required only minimal repairs in a couple of places, and then it was good to go for the lifetime of the new WETT Pro surface. Because this surface is the most durable on the market at present, its lifetime will be a long one, during which hockey teams will appreciate.

All the performance advantages offered by this world-class pitch.

The irrigation we had installed previously was serviced, but was still working well.

World-class WETT Pro is popular with all hockey players

TigerTurf WETT Pro is accredited by the Federation of International Hockey (FIH), allowing the Bay of Plenty club to host international and national tournaments.

The club will also be able to hire the facility to other clubs, as WETT Pro is a superb hockey surface, rated highly by hockey players. Plans are already afoot to upgrade the second turf in the next three to four years.

For now, the players are looking forwardto showing off their splendid new turf at the opening match.
