TigerTurf UK is one of the most experienced, artificial turf manufacturers in the country. Based near Kidderminster, Worcestershire TigerTurf's manufacturing facilities supply synthetic turf surfaces for recreation and sport to customers across the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

TigerTurf manufacturers artificial sports surfaces for most major sports for all levels of play.

‘We can see the positive approach the TIA are taking in expanding all aspects of tennis, including having a regular dialogue with players, clubs and facility providers. At TigerTurf, we are really keen to communicate effectively with all of the tennis industry, and to play our part in widening the reach of the sport and believe our partnership with the TIA will help us to achieve this. . We look forward to working with the TIA to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the tennis market. And, for our part, we hope to bring technical expertise and knowledge of how to manufacture and install tennis surfaces at the highest standard.”
