As part of a larger school extension project at Norbury Manor Business and Enterprise College for Girls, Blakedown have constructed five new macadam (tarmac) tennis and netball courts on the site of a smaller existing court that had become worn and a grassed area that was rarely used.
A new drainage system and 3 metre high panel fencing were installed, and lines for tennis and netball were sprayed on. An acrylic-coating performance layer is planned for the new courts in the summer holidays.
As well as the sports surface, Blakedown also re-constructed the kerbing, resurfaced the access roads and car parks, and installed a GrasscreteTM road around the courts for emergency vehicle access.
