|Since commencing with East Torrens as a consultant for our Campbelltown Memorial Oval centre wicket and our turf practice facilities some 5 years ago, the relationship between TK Turf Services and the Club has been most successful.|
In the last 3 years as our centre wicket curator, our wickets have improved considerably which has not only raised the standard of the facility, it has raised the standard of cricket performance.
The professionalism of TK Turf Services is second to none as is the communication, reliability and availability to meet on-site or over the 'phone to discuss and resolve issues both large and small.
We look forward to building upon the excellent results achieved so far well into the future.
I remain confident in recommending TK Turf Services to their prospective customers.

|We were constantly looking at the ovals in the AFL wondering how we could improve our overall appearance on match days. We upgraded our signage, goal post protection pads and our time clock. We also decided to find out about having the oval marked and as we had heard of Trent Kelly Turf Services from other SANFL clubs we decided to get them in for a chat.|
Trent's professional approach and a complete understanding of what we needed and what was required at SANFL level meant that we don't have to worry. We send through the dates of when we need the oval marked and on the day everything is done, rain, hail or shine. When we are required to have different colours for Multi Cultural round or any other requirements Trent and his team are front and centre.
The price and quality of work we receive from TK Turf Services means Hickinbotham Oval looks picture perfect throughout the year so we thoroughly endorse TK Turf services.

|The North Adelaide Football Club has enjoyed a long standing working relationship with TK Turf Services through their management of Prospect Oval. The standard of the Oval has improved significantly under their control to the point where it is now one of the best surfaces in the SANFL competition. The Oval is also used for cricket in the summer and the transition period between seasons is straightforward and handled in a professional manner. The staff is always approachable on site and give their time to make sure that the oval presents at a very high standard visually for all of our home games throughout the football season. Their attention to detail is a feature of their finshed product which makes them a highly recommendable business in the industry.|

|Alice Springs was fortunate to receive 2 Sheffield Shield Matches during the 2014 / 2015 Domestic Season. Council engaged the services of TKTurf Services to ensure the wickets were to the standard required for First Class Cricket Matches. Trent had prior knowledge of the requirements associated with the standards required for the preparation of the cricket wicket and ovals. Trent was a pleasure to work with and Council would have no hesitations in recommending the company to any business or sporting organisation into the future.|

|I have known Trent Kelly for approximately 10 years, firstly as an intensive competitor on the sporting fields of Adelaide and over recent years as a business man, running TK Turf Services. On the sporting field he could be referred to as a “competitive beast”, a person who played within the rules but ensured the opposition worked hard to achieve success against him. He was always the first to congratulate those who achieved, knowing that he had fought a battle to the best of his ability and either won or lost.|
Of recent years, Trent has established a Turf business and he applies the same principles to this business, namely giving his best to achieve the best possible outcome for his clients. He works long hours, is available 24/7 for advice and produces excellent results. As the immediate past president of the Tea Tree Gully District Cricket Club I, without hesitation recommend TK Turf Services to you for your turf management / maintenance needs.

|I had the pleasure of working with Trent as part of Cricket Victoria’s desire to have two ‘home’ Sheffield Shield games played in Alice Springs at Traeger Park in 2015. Working with many curators over a life time of cricket has at times thrown up some interesting conversations or lack of them however in Trent’s case his communication & knowledge is extensive along with a work ethic that is punishing! He was ably assisted by Alice Springs Town Council and NT Cricket staff, they produced a quality oval with outstanding first class cricket pitches plus general training facilities that would be the envy of most other modern cricket venues.|

We have been provided with a quality and timely service. The cost to linemark the grounds has been competitive|
