Thorndon Tennis Club’s persistent fund raising secures the best possible surface for its members

Thorndon Tennis Club wanted the best tennis surface available and after researching and trialling a number of options, they opted for TigerTurf Advantage, a top level surface with fantastic playing qualities and suitable for players of all abilities. 

Thorndon Tennis Club was dissatisfied with poorly executed repairs to a tennis court undertaken by another company, which left the turf uneven, disrupting the ball bounce and presenting a trip hazard. The members did some research and compared surfaces they liked – TigerTurf Advantage won the vote, and the fund-raising was underway.

TigerTurf Advantage engineered for high performance

This top-level tennis surface is manufactured to the highest specifications for fast, hard play. Of course, social tennis players also have a better game on Advantage.

The fibre TigerTurf uses for Advantage holds the sand infill securely to maintain a consistently high level of performance. Also presenting excellent traction underfoot and reliable spin, regular bounce and consistent pace, Advantage is a joy to play on.

No wonder Advantage was the club’s preferred surface. The players knew this surface would give them the best value for their investment. 

Persistent Fund Raising pays dividends

Happily, the prized tennis surface was achieved by concentrated fund-raising right up to the week before the project was due to start. 

TigerTurf, as the chosen partner for this exciting project, supported the club’s decision to wait and raise the funds required for the best surface possible on two courts. We selected and quoted for appropriate tennis surfaces as the funding team were able to increase the available pool of funds.

All that hard work and patience has its reward.   The club should enjoy top class tennis on these superb Advantage courts for up to 15 years; perhaps more if regular maintenance is carried out.

Thorndon Tennis Club can now host club and interclub competitions right up to the highest level. Night play is no problem, as the surface grips even when damp, and does not shine under lights. 

TigerTurf Advantage has been tested to ITF standards as a medium-fast tennis surface suitable for international tennis play when correctly installed and comes with a 10 year warranty.
