Hoërskool Kroonstad High School – “Bloues”
“Bloues” has always been known as the top hockey school in the Northern Free State and play hockey in the Goudveld-, Fezile Dabie- en Vaaldriehoek-leagues. It was decided to have a blue playing surface in line with the school’s nick-name “Bloues”. It is the first artificial hockey pitch in the Fezile Dabi district. The Fieldturf system is a FIH National certified system.
FieldTurf Gold Pro 18 is the artificial turf selected for the playing surface. The turf has a curly mono-filament pile yarn with a pile height of 18 mm. The turf will be installed on a stabilised constructed base with a 15 mm e-layer comprising of SBR rubber crumb mixed with a binder.
As a sand-dressed turf silica sand is imported and spread across the playing surface.
Perimeter drainage has been installed to allow for surface water to be drained from the pitch and taken to the dam on the school’s property.
