Bewdley Tennis Club is delighted to announce the completion of the court surface replacement on 3 of its courts. One of the longest running tennis clubs in Worcestershire now has 7 all-weather courts available for local members to play on.
The existing clay courts were showing extensive wear and tear. The club and its members needed to think about the long-term issues with regards to the surface. It went to a vote and the popular opinion was to change to an artificial grass surface.
Keen to use a local supplier for the surface, and after much research, the development committee opted for Tiger Turf (based in Hartlebury) and Chiltern Sports Contractors were engaged to install the new surface. After 7 weeks of hard work, the courts are looking stunning and the members were queueing up to try it out.
Tim Merrison, President said ‘Tennis has been the lifeline for many of our member during the pandemic and during some of the busy club nights we hold, rain or frost has meant we couldn’t play on the existing clay courts so it made sense to opt for a surface which will allow us to offer 7 all-weather courts for our members to play on’.
