Project Description

Bourne Sport were employed by British Tennis to construct 4 new courts for the Downend & Frenchay Tennis Club (formerly known as Downend & Fishponds LTC). Involving a good quantity of bulk earthworks to carry out, the challenge was accessing the works area across a cricket outfield. We started works in November, on the understanding the contract had to be complete, with the cricket outfield reinstated and fit for use for the cricket season the following April. This was achieved to the satisfaction of the Cricket Club with 2 weeks to spare.

The tennis court project involved all earthworks, drainage, sub-base and surface construction during a difficult time of the year where ground conditions were difficult. The success of the scheme generated referrals and subsequent work from other schools and clubs in the area.
