With help from UK tennis court funding, schools, universities, sports clubs, leisure centres and many other organisations can be eligible to receive a grant which will provide funding to renovate old tennis court facilities or build brand new ones. We are able to carry out the construction work for these facilities, with a variety of design options to choose from.
If building a new tennis court is out of your budget and you are successful in securing a grant, your organisation could have an outstanding new sports facility installed for everyone to enjoy to help make sure everyone has an opportunity to stay healthy and enjoy tennis.
A tennis court can be constructed in a variety of different surfacing specifications including porous macadam, artificial grass carpet and polymeric rubber, each of these types of surface has qualities which can be better suited to different requirements. For example porous macadam surfacing is a popular choice for school tennis courts as it allows for good water drainage, enabling the facility to be used all year round and in all weather conditions. UK Tennis court funding grants are available for all of these surfacing specifications and a bespoke grant can be tailored to meet your requirements and get you the best possible tennis facility specifically for you and your institution
Tennis Courts Grant Fund
It is important to ensure that the project is carried out by specialist tennis court builders that have all the required accreditations set by the ITF, SAPCA and LTA to ensure that the end project is safe for players to use, as well as providing good performance qualities. Tennis court contractors can also apply anti slip paint coatings to the tennis surface in a wide range of colours to enhance safety when players are moving around the court, while still providing an excellent playing experience. Tennis line markings can also be applied to your sports surface with professional non slip paint in a contrasting colour to the overall coating of the surface. This ensures that tennis matches are scored accurately and enhances the game playing characteristics. You can get a tennis courts grant fund to help with all aspects of tennis facility installation, including the application of non slip coatings and line marking.

Soft Surfaces won a competitive tender to supply and install a new 6528 m² all weather pitch, marked for football, rugby union and three 5-a-side pitches. There is storage at one end for posts and equipment and the complex is enclosed by a 3m high rebound fence. Lighting columns were erected along the perimeter, and lighting bollards to the access path. A large-scale earthworks scheme was undertaken to create a plateau some 900mm above the 100-year flood level in order to accommodate the pitch. SS worked over weekends and during the normal Christmas shutdown to minimise delays.
When AFC Bournemouth wanted to create a new training surface, we looked into the various options. We discussed the performance and playing characteristics of a variety of surfaces. In the summer, we chose a 3G surface (Rhino Turf VT40) which was supplied and installed by Soft Surfaces Ltd. We chose the Rebounce shock-pad to compliment the VT40 surface, as it met the performance, quality and the most natural appearance – so much more realistic in looks, feel and performance than other synthetic surfaces. We have found Soft Surfaces to be very professional and easy to deal and work with.

We believe we received good value for money by opting to use Soft Surfaces and would like to thank the team for making it painless and stress-free installation experience. We were particularly impressed with the degree of flexibility your exercised as we wanted to change the perimeter area. It’s also important that I state how impressed we were with the cleanliness and tidiness of the work; the site was spotless upon completion. Likewise, the after service has been good and we appreciate that you’ve stayed in touch to make sure we were pleased with the end product. In summary i would be happy to reccomend Soft Surfaces without hesitation or reservation; it was a pleasure doing business with you!

Soft Surfaces came to run a brief presentation on the advantages of their product and why he felt that this was best value and straight away we understood what we was getting as a product, service and installation. I am more than happy with how the project ran with it being delivered ontime, within budget and now have a great football artificial 3G surface. I would strongly recommend dealing with James Dooley at Soft Surfaces who will talk you through the various costs, specifications and finer details because would definitely like to point out that the cheapest is not always the best value. Massive thank you to the team for providing us now with a thriving new facility!
Golborne High School
I would like to express my thanks to all the staff at Soft Surfaces Ltd for helping our school in the upgrade of our MUGA flooring. We were experiencing serious problems with contaminated sand causing flooding and making the surface dangerous under foot. You undertook a site visit and carried out an infill contamination assessment to investigate the problems. This identified that the sand infill needed replacing to bring the facility back to its correct playing characteristics and porous again. The PE staff in school are extremely impressed with the impact of the work undertaken and have commented that it has made a significant improvement to the MUGA surface. I would certainly recommend Soft Surfaces!
