Spring 2011

TigerTurf goes the distance

TenCate Tapeslide™ is used for tufting into TigerTurf’s Tournament 1000, which forms the basis for a new volleyball court and school quadrangle at Hedland Senior High School in South Hedland (Western Australia).

The area, with its attractive and safe playing surface, is now usable day in, day out.

When Hedland Senior High School (South Hedland, Western Australia) decided to resurface its existing bitumen basketball court and natural grass school quadrangle, the distance of 1700 kilometres to TigerTurf office in Perth presented no problem. Tournament 1000 with TenCate Tapeslide™ PP 8800 thus goes the distance both literally and figuratively.

The basis for Tournament 1000 is TenCate Tapeslide™ PP 8800, which is manufactured in the Netherlands and Dubai. The area provides a safe, level and attractive low-maintenance surface that can now be played on day in, day out. TigerTurf will complete many more similar projects in schools during the course of 2011. Many bitumen pitches or natural grass areas will be converted into courts using TigerTurf, with various line markings for sports and play.
