The Astro Turf is a recent addition to Southwell School and provides a sports facility for year round use. The turf and surrounding fields host numerous sporting events and inter-school fixtures.
The Astro Turf has 9 tennis courts, 2 half junior hockey fields, 1 senior hockey field and 3 netball courts. On Saturday mornings, you can find a combination of these sporting codes being played side by side.
The quality of the turf has attracted outside groups to seek it out for training and match preparation. New Zealand's very own Women's Blacksticks is one team that has trained here.
