Following extensive dialogue Blakedown were appointed directly by Thomas Lord Audley School to fully refurbish their 60 x 35m hard courts.
Due to a large number of cracks and sunken areas within the existing surface, the tarmac was planed off and stone base re-graded. Prior to the new tarmac surface being laid, a new drainage system was also installed.
Blue and pink acrylic coating to match the colour theme of the 2012 London Olympic Games, with playing lines for netball in yellow, completed the refurbishment. International Netball standard sockets and posts were also fitted.
