Hallamshire Tennis & Squash Club:Environmental improvements

Hallamshire Tennis and Squash Club is set just outside Sheffield city centre and has 2100 members. The club has 6 outdoor tennis courts, 4 indoor tennis courts, 10 squash courts, a gym and 2 saunas.

Courtcraft were pleased to be working on a project delivering environmental sustainability goals in a major sports facility. Six of the squash courts were fitted with underfloor heating to replace old ceiling-mounted heaters which rarely delivered the heat to where it was required. Underfloor heating permits controllable heat at player level and will remove time consuming and expensive maintenance on the old units. This will save significant amounts of money by making the heating within the squash courts as efficient as possible.

Portway Lifestyle Centre

Portway Lifestyle Centre is an exciting leisure facility for Sandwell, a vibrant and unique sports, health and well-being centre for the whole community and centre of excellence for people with disabilities. The sport and leisure facilities at Portway Lifestyle Centre are managed by charitable organisation Sandwell Leisure Trust.

The project is a partnership between Sandwell Council, Sandwell Leisure Trust, Department of Health, NHS England and Sport England. It has been supported by Sport England through Sustainable Facilities Lottery Funding. The project aims to provide easy and inclusive access for all of the community and provide a ‘whole life approach’ to health and social care delivery. It includes a wide range of facilities that are designed to encourage disabled people to participate in physical activities and leisure services.

Courtcraft was excited to be a construction partner in such an important sports facility project. We installed nearly 1200m2 of Junckers SylvaSport Beech flooring on battens to provide an A4 rated sports floor.
