Their existing synthetic tennis courts were cleaned and re-sanded, but didn’t offer the comfort and safety that the club required. This is where Playrite came in, who visited the courts and after investigation decided that it was time the club had them re-surfaced.
Steve Byrnes, Playrite’s National Area Manager introduced club manager Kevin Lobley to the full range of dedicated tennis surfaces manufactured on site in West Yorkshire. Playrite are the only UK manufacturer to product woven, tufted and needlepunch surfaces so they have a wide range available for all different kinds of tennis clubs. After further consultation with the club coaches, it was decided that Winner 15 would be the best suited to their needs.
Winner 15 by Playrite is a sand filled tufted tennis surfaces classified to ITF category 4, medium fast. Made from fibrillated polypropylene fibres to a pile height of 15mm, the surface is suitable for all levels of play; whether beginner or professional, providing a positive grip, comfort, and a degree of spin. Bourne Club also needed a surface that could be manufactured quickly, due to the fact that they wanted the new courts to be ready for the grand opening of the clubs new reception, bar area and offices.
Kevin Lobley Club Manager explained how:

Steve was very attentive and secured a fitting team which allowed us to complete the project from order to opening in 10 days. Well done and thanks to the Playrite team.”
