Agent: A.S Lodge Tennis Courts
This project consisted of the design, construction and installation of a full-sized private tennis court in Kew, Victoria. The high-quality synthetic grass court was designed for a sloping block with extensive drainage and subgrade problems.
Additional problems were discovered once the initial site cut was performed, so a new and partially suspended slab was designed to overcome the instability. During construction further unstable subgrade was discovered and the pavement was redesigned to a suspended slab with additional beams and 40MPA concrete.
The court had to be unobtrusive and ‘not look like a primary school yard.’ The olive coloured Matchplay with olive green sand infill resulted in a very natural and aesthetically pleasing court that met the client’s specific demands.
The surrounding fencing was also designed and constructed using recycled 200 x 200 timber posts and beams. Stainless steel mesh was then suspended between the posts making the fence near invisible.
Water is harvested from the court with a 100,000-litre water tank installed beneath the surface, which is also connected to the property irrigation system and toilets.
Finishing off with drink fountains, 6 x 550 lux LED blade lights and a basketball tower, this family home now has a tennis court with a 100-year life expectancy.
