New tennis courts and refurbished pitch

North Cornwall District Council employed Blakedown Sport & Play to construct new tennis courts and refurbish the full-size synthetic pitch at the Dragon Leisure Centre in Bodmin. The block of four courts were surfaced with a layer of porous macadam and coated with a non-slip green acrylic paint. The installation included new weldmesh fencing and floodlighting system. The courts are the home of the Bodmin Dragon Tennis Club.

The artificial turf pitch was pulled up and laid onto new foundations, a top-specification engineered tarmac base, and new shockpad. Sections of the perimeter fencing were repaired or replaced and new timber kickboards fitted. The refurbishment also included a new spectator path running down the inside of the fencing, and additional groundworks to provide a grass mini-football pitch.
