Classic Match is the perfect match for Bramall Queensgate Tennis Club

An installation of our new ‘Classic Match’ surface has recently been completed at Bramall Queensgate Tennis Club in Stockport.

Designed specifically to simulate the playing characteristics of clay surfaces, this new synthetic surface provides tennis clubs with a high performance, cost effective and low maintenance alternative. Bramall Queensgate Tennis Club required a surface that would slow down the ball and provide a high ball bounce in comparison to that experienced on grass or hard courts. Our terracotta ‘Classic Match’ surface does just that.

A traditional sand-filled surface, previously installed by Thornton Sports, was removed and replaced with ‘Classic Match’ on one complete block of the club’s four blocks of three tennis courts. The project was completed on programme and to the club’s specified budget. Since the project’s completion tennis club members have been queuing up to use the new surface. Ray Phillips, Treasurer and Joint Chairperson of the club comments,

 “Our new courts were completed just over a week ago and already they are getting favourable comments from members. It’s great to have an alternative slower surface that offers a different playing experience for members. We’re delighted we chose Thornton Sports to resurface our courts, as the team have been fantastic throughout and Classic Match is really cost effective”

On the back of the success of this project, Thornton Sports are delighted to have also been awarded a project to install ‘Classic Match’ at Denby Dale Tennis Club in Huddersfield. Uniquely, the surface will be installed on top of our patented SudsSports system, which provides an innovative solution for sites experiencing difficult ground conditions or drainage issues. Work at the club is already underway.
