CASE STUDY – Construction of Tennis Courts – Sports

Spadeoak was instructed by our client to complete the construction of 6 clay tennis courts at Bradfield College in Berkshire.
The college, a venue for annual national and international tennis events, required additional courts to service the demand for their outstanding sports facility and to meet their requirements and outstanding facilities there was only one contractor they called upon.

Bradfield College, founded in 1850, called upon the sporting experts of Spadeoak to construct 6 new clay tennis courts.
The college in Berkshire homes over 800 students aged from 13 to 18 and already has outstanding sports facilities.
It is the outstanding sports facilities that has seen the college host annual national and international tennis events including the ITF World Tennis Tour (Juniors) in 2022.

Keen to continue their reputation of these facilities the college instructed Spadeoak to construct the 3,000m2 clay courts.

Rare in the UK, the clay courts provide an alternative surface to the standard grass, an excellent opportunity for the college to differentiate themselves and support students and the tennis community with quality coaching for this type of service.

The challenge to Spadeoak was the weather as the construction would take place during winter 2021. However as specialists, this is where Spadeoak expertise ensured the project ran without any issues and to programme.
