We are excited to hand over our Hockey Astro turf pitch to specialist contractors for the upgrade of the playing surface. It is hard to believe that it was 10 years ago since we were one of the first boys high schools in Durban to pioneer the establishment of our own international standard artificial hockey pitch on our own school campus. During these 10 years the top standard playing surface has made a major contribution to Northwood hockey being respected as one of the leading hockey playing schools in South Africa. Not only by the results achieved but also the way Northwood boys have learnt to play the game. The upgrade project is scheduled to be complete by January 2016 with the provision of a FIH approved water based Greenfields synthetic turf on a rubberized elastic layer. The same specification that was supplied to the FIH World Cup in Holland in 2014. Northwood hockey boys are privileged to have the world best facilities available to them at home at Northwood.
As this area is a construction site for the next 3 months please can we all, for our own health and safety , keep away from the site and the construction activities. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to an exciting project.
