Students at Parade College, in Melbourne’s northern suburb of Bundoora, will soon be enjoying the benefits of TigerTurf as the installation of synthetic grass begins.

The existing natural grass oval will be transformed to a safe, attractive state of the art multi purpose facility that will include a full size synthetic grass football pitch, running track surround, sprint track, six tennis / netball courts and a long jump run up and pit.

The synthetic football pitch will be surfaced with TigerTurf Soccer Real that has 60mm pile height surface. This best replicates natural grass playing characteristics and as an added benefit, the synthetic grass will require minimal maintenance and no water.

The running track, netball and tennis courts will be surfaced using TigerTurf Tournament 1000, a dense and hard wearing 19mm sand filled surface to withstand high levels of usage.

The upgrade will not only reduce maintenance costs but provide students with a facility that can be used day in day out without the risk of injury.
