#SquashEmoji Campaign



Over 20 million people play the sport of squash world-wide. From Hong Kong to Dubai, it's played internationally!

So at Courtcraft, we got to thinking about something... Why aren't there any emojis to properly represent Squash?

Courtcraft Complete Work for Kier on Former RAF Air Force Base

As a new school, located at the heart of Heyford Park in Oxfordshire, Heyford Free School provides an environment that equips pupils with a ‘can do’ attitude and the school is currently working to refurbish buildings to the highest possible standard for future pupils.

The excellent range of facilities are located on one of the UK’s most exciting sites of historical importance, using fully refurbished buildings once used by both the RAF and US Air Force, including the stunning Officers Mess.

Courtcraft are delighted to have worked with Kier Group plc on this education sector project at Heyford, to provide new facilities at the school. In the Sports Hall & Drama Studio, Courtcraft installed a Junckers 22mm SylvaSport Premium Beech floor on levelling cradles, followed by Badminton, Netball, Basketball and Volleyball line markings, as well as a coat of HP seal

For squash players, there is now a new front wall renovation panel system, patch repaired and painted side walls, a new Junckers floor and new tin. Of course fully line marking was also included.

Thomas Smith, Managing Director at Courtcraft, said, ‘Another project has been completed and we are very pleased to have been able to work with Kier on the facility improvement programme at Heyford Free School. It was an unusual and very interesting project working on a former air force base. Not something we have done before!’

Before and after at Kirkcudbright Squash Club

After a massive fund raising effort by Kirkcudbright people for their own squash courts, Kirkcudbright Squash Club was born in 1981. Recent water damage meant the two squash courts needed refurbishment and Courtcraft were pleased to be selected to do this.

The damaged plaster was removed and re-plastered, the courts were painted with waterproof paint, new tins were installed, new floors were put down and both courts were fully re-marked.

The clubhouse is situated next to the swimming pool, behind Kirkcudbright Academy in the Castledykes area of the town and it is hoped that the work done will encourage more visitors to come along as a guest of a member or independently.

Thomas Smith, Managing Director of Courtcraft, said, ‘’The transformation at Kirkcudbright is there for all to see. We were very pleased to manage and deliver the project and hope that all the members and visitors enjoy playing on the newly re-furbished courts.’
