New Flooring Adds Final Touch to Tennis Court Restoration

Posted on May 26th, 2011 In: News, Wood Floor Restorations News

New flooring has added the final touch to an expensive upgrade of one of the top health and fitness centres in Yorkshire. The last upgrade to one of the biggest private tennis clubs in the whole of the country, The Academy, cost around £70,000, with the replacement of the surfaces of the four tennis courts at the club, marking the end of a total investment in the Harrogate club that came to around £250,000 in total.

A blue, two tone “Foundation Carpet”, the creation of Playrite, a company based in West Yorkshire, has been fitted around the courts, amounting to approximately 2,500 square metres of space in total, and while unlikely to be used for wood floor restoration purposes anytime soon, it makes for a particularly ideal surface for a tennis club.

The indoor and outdoor tennis facilities at the club are considered to be some of the best in the North of England, and also attract many players from all over the region, according to Philippa Shackleton, the Managing Director of The Academy. “The fitting of the new playing surface is part of our ongoing commitment to provide our members with first class facilities.”

“The new flooring has made a real difference to the games being played at The Academy” said the club’s Senior Tennis Coach, Chris Paraskos. “While some indoor surfaces can lead to relatively slow matches, ours is designed to be medium to fast, meaning more exciting tennis played at a quicker pace.”
