York High School
Construction of Hockey Astro facilities, Synsport
York High School, George, has been associated with Synthetic Sports Surfaces since 2005.
It was in that year that York bought two, second-hand Fields/Carpets from the Randburg Astro-Facility in Johannesburg and transported them down to George. Four unused Tennis Courts were then converted into a Mini-Astro (72m x 36m) with proper sited circles (D's) to enable us to practice short corners, set-pieces, etc. Two years later in 2007 sufficient funds had been raised to start construction on our full-size field, which was then officially opened in May 2008 amidst much "Fanfare and Celebration" by all in the Community.
The old carpet was played on until the end of 2014 when we were then able to purchase a brand new State of the Art Turf, which will last us for many years.
All the above work has been undertaken by Synthetic Sport Surfaces, for whom no problem has ever been too big to undertake.
Their sheer Professionalism and willingness to assist has always been of the utmost highest standards, and it has been an absolute pleasure in dealing with them.
Thanks, Bob, Dylan, Michael, and staff.
