Fieldform were recently approached by a private client to explore the potential of developing an area of unused space into a tennis court that could be utilised throughout the year by the entire family. Following an initial site visit we developed a design that included a synthetic playing surface and a bespoke, fully integrated retaining wall and perimeter fence, our attention to detail and immediate rapport with the client helped secure this project.
The works area presented several challenges during the initial excavations including, uncovering soft ground and a former fire pit, these issues were quickly overcome by close consultation between and client and our site team and the presentation of several design options including the provision of a drainage system and increasing the depth of the specified sub base.
Following the completion of the new tennis court we are extremely proud of the finished product, innovative features include a retaining wall built using rustic materials to provide a subtle backdrop and a low level fence to ensure the court is in keeping with the surrounding countryside.
Following a recommendation from a potential supplier we contacted Fieldform to help design and construct a new tennis court at our property in the New Forest. From our initial telephone conversation it was clear the company was experienced at working with private clients and had a fine eye for detail. During the design phase James and Richard took on board our ideas and created practical solutions to issues including limited space and a sloping site. One thing that really stood out was their ability to provide clear design solutions that complimented our rural surroundings.
During the construction phase difficult and unexpected ground conditions were uncovered, Fieldform approached these issues with professionalism and provided an immediate response ensuring the development could continue within the agreed time frame. Their site team were polite, hard working and always happy to discuss project progress.
We are delighted with the new court especially the retaining feature and the high quality fencing, tennis is now a daily activity in our household. If you are thinking about building a new tennis court we would highly recommend Fieldform.
