Leading UK universities are making TigerTurf the surface of choice for their new sports complex developments.
TigerTurf’s ability to provide customised solutions that cover a range of sports has seen the company deliver surfaces to two of the leading sports universities in the UK.
The University of Leeds has transformed its Weetwood sports facility with a TigerTurf 3G football pitch and an Evolution hockey pitch, which is now home to England Hockey (North).
Dr Sue Jacklin, assistant director of sport and physical activity at the University of Leeds, says: “This partnership allows athletes and coaches to hone physical fitness, develop technical and tactical expertise, review strategy and have the opportunity to relax and unwind, all on one site.”
At the University of Birmingham, it’s the rugby teams that are set to benefit from TigerTurf’s innovative technology.
Birmingham have invested in TigerTurf’s Total Rugby surface, which when tested in accordance with RFU/IRB regulation 22 achieved the highest performance standards set within the industry.
Bryn Lee, managing director of TigerTurf (UK) Ltd, says: “Universities are often at the forefront of sports development in the UK and we are delighted to have been chosen as the surface of choice for two such prestigious establishments.
“As a company, we are constantly striving to deliver the most dynamic and innovative range of artificial grass surfaces, meeting the highest performance standards, whilst offering a bespoke service to our clients.
“Our versatility across all sports is one of our major advantages and we are excited about working on more university projects in the near future.”
