Did you know tennis was developed as a blend of rackets and pelota (Basque ball game) in Birmingham in 1872?
The inventors then created the first tennis club in Leamington Spa and in 1884 the first tennis tournaments were held in the grounds of Shrubland Hall.
The first Wimbledon championships were then played in 1877 with significant debates on how the rules should be standardized and improved.
Not only do we install standard tennis courts, we also install short tennis courts.
The short tennis version is very popular for enabling the school to have a number of courts within the playground area to achieve maximum input from as many pupils as possible.
We would also like to stress that short tennis can be combined with netball courts or basketball courts so making as much use as possible for the playground space available.
We have listed a few of the most popular variations available, though (as always) we will be delighted to receive your suggestions and create courts to enable you to obtain the best possible result and use of your playground area (there is no additional charge for this).
These markings are supplied and installed using the brightest, vibrant colours, the highest possible quality and hardest wearing preformed thermoplastic material available.
We only use the highest quality, hardest wearing Preformed Thermoplastic material available.
Preformed Thermoplastic markings can be fitted to virtually any solid surface (asphalt, concrete etc) and our material conforms to BS EN 1436 (please take this into consideration when comparing suppliers)
It is the same material as used in London for the congestion signage and cycle lanes.
Our material has also been used in numerous other situations including:
Highway signs, Car parks, Company/school logos, Superstores, Cycle lanes, Steps (to ensure they meet health and safety standards), Ramps, Signage & delineation
Once applied the material can take foot traffic after a matter of minutes - depending on the ambient temperature (the colder the temperature the quicker it will cure).'
We would also like to stress that virtually any design, logo, or game can be created to meet your, your colleagues and your pupils requirements.
