Performance Assessment of Sports Surfaces
Sport New Zealand has partnered with New Zealand Sports Turf Institute (NZSTI) to develop the Performance Assessment Toolkit for Sports Surfaces.
Performance Assessment of Sports Surfaces (PASS) provides a system and series of tools for assessing sports field performance.
It offers all councils the potential to benchmark the performance of their fields, plan usage and upgrades - and generally get the best from their ongoing investment.
The development of PASS is as a result of a two-year pilot project (2007-09) involving Dunedin, Christchurch, Wellington, Kapiti, Tauranga, Hamilton, Manukau, and Auckland Councils.
PASS complements the existing Sports Field Demand Model and Toolkit, which helps local authorities to assess the capacity and usage of their sports fields.
