It is just as easy to lay a court surface that works brilliantly for tennis, and for hockey, netball, basketball, football and family social events.
Families often have many different sports interests as schools extend the sports available to their students. By installing a good quality TigerTurf MultiPlay synthetic court, you provide your children with the opportunity to improve their technique safely and conveniently in your own garden, for many years.

TigerTurf courts provide you with a dry, level surface that looks attractive every day, needs very little maintenance and will become an enjoyable part of your family life. That’s reason enough for a MultiPlay court, but there are plenty of other great ideas you could include.
Basketball keys and hoops can be installed A hockey “D” can be cut in at one end or at the side of the court and used for practicing stick tricks, dribbling, tapping and goal scoring If your family includes cricket enthusiasts consider adding a cricket wicket on the edge of your MultiPlay court This could also be combined to create a mini golf driving range; suitably fenced and enclosed to ensure no wayward balls… the perfect practice wicket and golf range in one, alongside your multi-play court. More of a netball enthusiast? Install a netball goal circle and hoop for perfecting your goal shooting. The MultiPlay court is also excellent for improving football skills with a non-directional surface providing consistent ball control and secure footing. Other options can include volleyball, badminton, a baseball diamond or games such as hopscotch and foursquare. And let’s not forget lawn bowls and croquet!
TigerTurf use different colours and line markings to distinguish different games and sports within the turf. These are either tufted into the turf during manufacture or cut into the turf during installation. We are the experts, having established and installed hundreds of multi-sport courts in schools over the past 30 years.
You don’t need the space of a full-size tennis court to enjoy the benefits of the TigerTurf MultiPlay court. As gardens have become smaller, sports have adapted to be played in a tighter, more concentrated format. Loosely translated, this generally means an even tougher workout.
Multi-play courts can be smaller than conventional tennis courts, and perfect for pop tennis, bowls, netball and basketball, golf putting, cricket and many other outdoor activities. The pared-down size of a pop tennis court can still provide the same fun and workout as regular tennis. In fact, the upped tempo, as players race to reach the faster ball is just the thing for an excellent cardio workout. We can include a putting green as part of your multi-sports court, but these do look most inviting when attractively placed in your garden setting, ideally replacing a troublesome section of lawn.
Our multi-sports surfaces are the product of many years of research and development, and have been variously accredited by international sports bodies for tennis, hockey, football and cricket – the different products will hold different accreditations, which your TigerTurf advisor can explain.
