Dragon Leisure Centre
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.

Build Time: 14 weeks
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.
