More Product/Service Info
The game of Hockey is growing in popularity at school level which is extremely positive for Hockey in South Africa. Hockey at professional level is no longer played on Natural Grass fields as natural fields are too slow, bumpy and inconsistent. In order for players to advance in the game of hockey they must train and play on an artificial surface as it provides consistent ball roll, ball bounce and improves the overall speed of the game. With the obvious advantages of these facilities like low maintenance, all year usage and consistent playing characteristics, these facilities are becoming a must for Schools and Clubs around the country. Synsport has installed over 100 Synthetic Hockey Fields and counting. We offer the latest in Hockey Turf and Shock pad technology. With over 20 years’ experience, our systems have a proven track record that meet FIH requirements. We offer a turn-key operation which sees us doing our design, base works, fencing systems as well as the ancillary items to complete the facility such as goal boxes, player dug outs, electronic scoreboards and flood lights.

What people are saying about Construction of Hockey Astro facilities
Views expressed below are those of the individual and not those of SchoolAdvisor or the school
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.

Stellenbosch High School
Construction of Hockey Astro facilities, Synsport
When our governing body approved our astro project, the first company that came to mind was Synsport. As a hockey coach who travels to a lot of astroturfs and who compared a lot of turfs with each other in recent years, one brand definitely stood out above the rest: SYNSPORT. Synsport's previous projects speak for themselves. They have done a lot of clubs in the Western province area like Western Province Cricket Club, Hartleyvale (home of Province hockey) and these clubs would also only pick the best to get the job done. They installed the astro at Stellenbosch High school quickly, effectively, effortlessly and without a glitch. It is not only their name which is connected to their brand that stood out for our school but also the aftermarket service they provide: maintenance, repairs and a good warranty. Looking back on their completed project we can say that we are so happy that we picked Synsport from everyone who tendered. They provide a quality product, with professional people with adequate skills to handle installations. I would recommend Synsport to anyone, anytime!

High standard work!
Construction of Hockey Astro facilities, Synsport
I have dealt with Synsport and the company owners, the Merryweather family, in my capacity of project manager for hockey facilities at both Selborne College and Clarendon Girls HS. Synsport were the main contractors at both these schools. Their work was of a high standard with great attention to detail and they were dedicated to providing the client with an end-product of outstanding quality with the result that both venues have a top-class playing surface and excellent floodlighting. Synsport engaged with the client with honesty and integrity throughout the duration of both contracts but it didn't end there. After-sales-service has been outstanding. They make regular visits to both Selborne and Clarendon to ensure there are no problems. They are definitely not "take the money and run" operators. Their client rapport is excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending Synsport to any school considering developing a synthetic hockey facility. Our experiences with them at Selborne and Clarendon leave me in no doubt that they rank with the very best in their field.
