A Combination AFL and Soccer Pitch


Narrabeen Sport High School, Namona St, Narrabeen, NSW.

Turf One was awarded the contract by Pittwater Council to design and construct a combination synthetic AFL and Soccer field in place of the existing natural grass oval at the school.

Installing a synthetic turf playing field on a flood plain presents unique challenges, however Turf One was able to reduce the risk of flood damage by utilising cryogenic rubber to infill the turf. Cryogenic rubber does not float and therefore has a lessened tendency to be displaced by overland water flows.

Turf One employed its experience with water harvesting to construct a system that will collect water and pump it to storage for the irrigation of a natural grass oval at the school.

Installation of FieldTurf Revolution™ synthetic turf enabled Turf One to deliver a field that meets the exacting standards of the AFL, FIFA 1 STAR and the IRB. The project was completed in early December 2012.
