TigerTurf are globally recognised synthetic grass manufacturers, with manufacturing facilities in New Zealand and the UK.

Thanks to unrivalled investment in product development, TigerTurf utilises innovative manufacturing processes to develop a comprehensive range of artificial turf which meets a variety of sports and leisure performance standards.

TigerTurf selects the most advanced yarns from parent company TenCate – market leader in yarn extrusion – to create a full range of synthetic turf for a wealth of sports, education, and leisure facilities. This commitment to quality is supported by a network of testing houses and the manufacturer's very own laboratory, which is equipped with the latest in testing equipment.

To support its expansive product range, TigerTurf has a network of highly-skilled construction and design partners, each of whom is able to extend the organisation’s industry-leading attention to detail to the installation and maintenance of its artificial turf products. TigerTurf partners and distributors provide sports and recreational synthetic grass surfaces to customers in over 85 countries.

Hockey products
All international matches, top club games, and the majority of other games of hockey are now played on synthetic surfaces. TigerTurf synthetic hockey products are fast and consistent, fostering skilful, dynamic hockey on safe, comfortable surfaces.
TigerTurf produces technical synthetic turf hockey turfs for two different systems: water-based turf and sand dressed turf.

Water-Based – TigerTurf WETT Pro is the ideal surface for elite and international level hockey matches.

  • WETT Pro has been specifically designed for high-performance play over many seasons.
  • Irrigated synthetic surfaces are preferred by elite-level hockey players due to their exceptional playing characteristics.

Sand Dressed – TigerTurf's sand-dressed surfaces feature densely tufted, soft polyethylene texturised yarns or knit-de-knit polypropylene yarns, partly filled with rounded grains of sand.

  • The purpose-designed fibres within the products provide the synthetic turf with the playing qualities of a “wet field”. The sand layer supports and strengthens the base of the fibres, but no sand is visible on the surface.
  • Sand-dressed hockey turfs are great to play on and great for the budget.
  • Our sand-dressed synthetic turf systems are not only suitable for hockey, but perform exceptionally across a number of sports.

As well as TigerTurf Australia being a major sponsor of Hockey Australia (which endorses TigerTurf’s hockey products). TigerTurf hockey products have featured in major tournaments across the world, including the FIH Woman’s world league, played on Harbour No 1 at North Harbour Hockey, New Zealand’s premier hockey precinct that features five TigerTurf hockey fields.
Two WETT Pro installations at the University of Birmingham in the UK are also set to host the hockey fixtures during the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
