Courtcraft has just finished a complete renovation at Bristol Grammar School. After being invited to assess the current situation of the school’s four squash courts, we came up with the best solution to transform the courts into pristine condition.

The existing squash court panels were bowed, loose and damaged and were causing a major problem for the school.

We installed our Courtcraft renovation panel system to the front walls after removing and discarding the existing broken panels to the front wall; all the sand was then removed from the cavity before new renovation panels were installed, glued and screwed to the existing alloy framework. The new surface was then filled, sanded to produce no visible joints, before the existing sand was replaced with a top up where required; finally two coats of our own unique water based two pack squash court paint was applied to all playwalls (including the side walls) that were renovated as part of the makeover.

In addition to the work on front and side walls, the existing maple flooring was removed on all four courts. A new secondary damp proof membrane was installed followed by the installation of new Junckers Sylvasquash unsealed Classic grade to all courts.

The final makeover comprised installing new Armourcoat tin batten systems to all courts and new line markings in red games paint.

Thomas Smith, Managing Director of Courtcraft, said ‘We are delighted to have completed this very prestigious job for Bristol Grammar School. Squash players will notice a huge difference when they arrive back at school in September and we hope they have a successful and enjoyable season. It is always nice for everyone involved in this project to receive positive feedback and reflections from the school have appreciated the professional way we handled the project.’

‘The team at Courtcraft undertook the recent refurbishment of our four squash courts on-time, within budget and in a courteous and professional manner.’
