Outdoor activities are a key part of any family holiday. For the owners of this beach house, such activities are literally on the doorstep the property features a full-size tennis court with a TigerTurf all-weather surface.

BOS Synthetic Turf, the local agency for TigerTurf, was contracted to build the subgrade, incorporating drainage for stormwater control, pour the concrete tennis court base, and install the synthetic playing surface, net and posts, and black chain link mesh fencing.

Director Ron Harding says the TigerTurf Tournament surface was specified as it is well suited to tennis. It can also be used all-year round, and its finished appearance is less sandy than other options.

"The two-tone Forest Green and Olive Green colouring highlights the tennis-playing area from the rest of the court, ensuring close line calls are easier to make," he says.

TigerTurf was also chosen as it is a durable, New Zealand-made surface that is suitable for coastal conditions.
