With a large proportion of elderly members playing at Odney Tennis Club every week, when it came to refurbishing three of it’s courts, comfort was a top priority!
Playrite offered the club a variety of suggestions and samples and after much consultation, they decided Matchplay2 was the perfect solution.
Matchplay 2 offers great stability, along with a built in cushioned layer that provides protection for ankle and leg joints, maximising playing time specifically for older members.The pace of the surface also provides added benefits when playing rallies or throughout coaching sessions,
Requiring just 8kg of sand per m2, Matchplay 2 also requires minimal maintenance, and is an ideal solution when budgets are tight or when it is not possible to overlay the original surfaces with more conventional products.
Nick Baker from Odney Tennis Club commented: “Playrite offered suggestions and various samples were considered. We chose the Matchplay 2 surface after much consultation with our club players and we are delighted that we did.
“The surface is excellent and, now in its second season, plays as well as the day it was installed.”
Mr Baker also commented on how the surface can be used in all-weather conditions, increasing playing time dramatically. He said: “They play just as well after rain as in the dry and everyone who has used the courts has enthused about what a great improvement they are. I would have no hesitation in recommending Playrite’s Matchplay 2 tennis surface”.
It is hoped the new comfortable Playrite courts will attract even more members to the club.
