Hoërskool Kempton Park’s Astro Hockey Field

Smart Sports floodlighting and wireless sports lighting control solution that meets International Hockey Federation (FIH) specifications

We supplied the smart LED floodlighting solution for Hoërskool Kempton Park’s new Astro Hockey field, situated in the Gauteng Province, South Africa. 

Hoërskool Kempton Park, widely known as Kempies, was founded in 1956 as one of the first Afrikaans high schools on the Rand. Kempies is therefore celebrating its 68th anniversary this year with a learner count of 1700 learners. As things change on the educational scene, Kempies is currently the only Afrikaans home language high school in the greater Kempton Park area. Apart from Afrikaans, English and Life Orientation, learners can choose between 18 subjects. Furthermore, Kempies participates in 15 different sports activities.

One of these sports activities is Hockey! With the aim of hosting prestigious hockey, they decided to build a new Astro Hockey field with a Category 2 Hockey surface. This is one of three Category 2 Hockey surfaces in the country. A high-quality smart lighting solution was needed to match this top-class facility!
