Te Puru Community Courts

Te Puru Community Courts get the TigerTurf treatment after years of neglect

Two stylish green and terracotta brick TigerTurf Tournament tennis courts have replaced the derelict community courts at Te Puru, encouraging local tennis players to take up their racquets again.

The acrylic court surface of the Te Puru Community tennis courts in Thames had deteriorated so badly they were unplayable, with an uneven, unstable base that discouraged tennis players from using the three courts.

TigerTurf works miracles within Council budgets

The Council made the positive decision to re-establish this wasted community asset to a standard that was fully functional, yet within its working budget. 

TigerTurf frequently accommodates restricted budgets by working with clients to achieve attractive, high quality sports facilities for them without exceeding agreed costs.  With several surface options to choose from, along with TigerTurf’s experience and expertise in restoring old tennis courts, we found a solution that worked for the Thames-Coromandel District Council.

Council thinks outside the square

With limited funds available to repair the base and install new surfaces, the council decided to replace one court surface at a time, with the intention of resurfacing two of the courts, converting the third to a skate park.

The TigerTurf team began by repairing the damaged base so that it would provide a stable, level surface for the fresh new synthetic tennis playing surfaces.

The first TigerTurf Tournament court was then installed in mid-June 2016, and the second court in November, 2018. 

The local tennis players are now well served by two good quality community tennis courts, which will give them, with a regular programme of light maintenance, consistently good play for many years to come.

The new Tournament courts will be much more fun for social play and local competitions, with the bonus of being excellent surfaces for interclub competition.
