3. Facilitating sports

Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages

TC-GlobalGoals-Icon03Healthy living, sufficient exercise: TenCate has been encouraging these principles for many years with high-quality fibres and integrated structures for sustainable synthetic turf systems. Sports can be played on these safe fields throughout the year. Thanks to the sophisticated damping and spring system, synthetic turf reduces the risk of injury when compared with a natural grass field — let alone a hard sand surface. TenCate Field in a box™ provides a field with excellent sporting properties. The sports field is produced using the most durable fibre in the world, the TenCate XP Blade™. 

Through NGOs, TenCate is also involved in training programmes for trainers and coaches, to assist them in their task of helping people both young and old to get involved in sports, leading healthy lives and developing their talents. 

Information programmes contribute to raising awareness of the importance of a healthy lifestyle, proper nutrition and hygiene. 

The GreenSource™ water management system can produce 17 million litres of clean water each year, enough to provide a local community with drinking water and to prevent disease. 

In summary, this project:

  • Provides an all-weather sports field;
  • Allows people to play all kinds of sports;
  • Promotes health among the young and old alike;
  • Encourages play and a good group dynamic;
  • Provides a safe environment;
  • Provides coaching and information programmes in collaboration with NGOs.
