Our Lady of Muswell Tennis Club in London didn’t hesitate in selecting Playrite products when they needed to upgrade their tarmac tennis courts, as they already know Playrite by their reputation. Around seven years ago the London tennis club with the help of the LTA, who helped to fund the project, had used Matchplay 2 to update two of their other tarmac courts, and they were impressed with the products and service Playrite offered and subsequently requested the same product for their new project.
Working alongside contractor ETC Sports Surfaces the installation was carried out using Matchplay 2, a sand dressed tennis surface known for its high performance and durability it is an excellent choice for tennis courts across the UK. The built in cushion layer makes for medium-paced play, it is easy on player’s leg joints and is classified by the ITF to meet category 3, medium pace. Inlaid lines can be permanently added in white, yellow, red and blue, keeping maintenance to a minimum. Playrite’s Matchplay 2 is an excellent choice for any tennis club due to its high porosity rating, making it suitable for all weather usage.
Brenda Stewart, Chairperson at Our Lady of Muswell Tennis Club explained how:
“We first heard of Playrite around 8 years ago when we were looking to get two of our courts upgraded. The Matchplay 2 surface was just what we were looking for and all our members remarked on what a difference the synthetic courts were to the old tarmac courts. When we needed the rest of our courts updating, we didn’t hesitate in selecting Playrite again.”
