Golf putting, basketball, tennis; all on a multi-sport court? What a great idea. A successful collaboration with our client turned an unpleasant, what was once a swamp (or at least resembled one) into a much-loved family sports court.
An unloved patch of mud and gravel was converted to a superb high-performance multi-sport court that will continue to be a family asset as the children begin to play different school sports through the years.
For now, the dry, level surface makes a wonderful play area for young children. The smooth turf is just the ticket for trikes and pull-along toys. And when it is party time, the family has a perfect venue ready for the marquee.
With a pleasant, smooth surface for sun umbrellas, deck chairs and tables, entertaining large groups or enjoying family picnics on summer evenings becomes simple.
Crushed rock was brought to the site and compacted to form a base, upon which we completed the final base layer with finer drainage material, before stabilising the whole structure with TigerBond to support and drain the multi-sport surface.
Our client built stronger retaining walls along either side of the site to hold the bank securely in place and, when the surface was installed, the picture was complete.
Trophy is fantastic surface for many sports, meeting international standards for tennis, basketball and hockey. And when the children need to practise their favourite school sports in the future, this versatile Trophy multi-court is ready for play.
