When looking for a new tennis surface, Wycombe House contacted Playrite to request a product that was low maintenance, quick draining, hardwearing and appropriate for the average age of the club’s members.
With a few different surfaces fitting the bill, Playrite provided the club with a variety of case studies and arranged for members to play at four tennis clubs where they had recently installed new courts.
After much deliberation, Wycombe House opted for Matchplay 2, having being impressed by its performance characteristics, life expectancy, simple maintenance regime and reduced replacement costs, due to the fact it isn’t glued down.
Paul Atkins, Chairman at Wycombe House said: “We at Wycombe House invested in Matchplay 2 to provide our members with a more comfortable surface that would encourage all ages and all standards to enjoy the game of Tennis. The low maintenance and reduced replacement costs were a major factor in our decision. I have also been very impressed with the support from Playrite — providing case studies, reference sites, authorised fitters, and a place where we could test the surface.”
He continued to describe how “We hope that by installing Matchplay 2 we can grow our membership and provide social and competitive tennis for all ages and standards of player.”
