    Newlands Lawn Tennis Club

    Site:

    Mochrum Road, Glasgow

    Date Completed:

    March 2012

    Contract Description:

    After an extensive and competitive tender process, TigerTurf’s ‘Advantage PRO’ synthetic turf surface was installed by specialist sports surfacing contractor, Ecosse Sports in early 2013. Covering a total area of 4200m2, which spans seven full sized courts, the Advantage PRO installation provides a high-quality, all-weather surface designed to benefit players and coaches alike. Designed with shock-absorbing characteristics that reduce the risk of injury and stress to the body, the surface has been designed so that it doesn’t shine when wet or under floodlights, and has also been tested to International Tennis Federation (ITF) standards. This culminates in a premium, all-round surface that players of all ages and experience levels can enjoy. Being able to offer the best possible playing surface is especially important to Newlands LTC, as a club that hosts a busy schedule of tennis and squash fixtures throughout the year. Boasting some of Scotland’s best racquet sports facilities, the club is home to five ladies’ and gents’ tennis teams, eight junior teams, and also hosts seven men’s and two ladies’ squash teams in the West of Scotland Leagues.

    Date Completed:

    September 2013

    Contract Description:

    In August 2013, Ecosse were chosen as main contractor to convert an existing block of 3no. blaes tennis courts that were badly compacted and barely playable and upgrade the area to enhance the number of courts available to members. It was decided that finished surface would be painted porous macadam but with the addition of floodlights to increase the number of hours the courts would be available. The general scope of works included the excavation and removal of the existing blaes materials, new drainage, new MOT Type 1 stone base, new PCC perimeter kerbs, new perimeter fencing, new floodlighting, two layers of open textured porous macadam as well as the acrylic spray coating, 3no. sets of tennis lines and new tennis posts, nets and equipment. One of the main drivers for the project was the clubs aim to increase tennis participation amongst the junior age bracket and therefore it was decided that mini tennis lines would be painted onto the new courts along with new free standing mini tennis equipment.
