Refurbishment Of Run Down Netball Courts
Netball is an increasingly popular sports in the UK and we are seeing lots more netball being played in clubs, societies, leisure centres and schools. Lots of netball courts are being refurbished as they are run down, tired and in some cases dangerous.
The refurbishment of a rundown netball court can come in many forms. New sports rebound fencing, new anti slip netball court coatings, new ball court surfacing and improved or new sports line markings. New netball & tennis surfacing can come in different forms such as a Polymeric Rubber Surface. This is an EPDM rubber surface which is coated with an anti slip coating (HG4 or HG5), depending on the amount of sporting use and level of sporting competition. Porous Macadam Coating or an All Weather Synthetic Turf Pitch.
All of these play surfaces have different performance characteristics and will vary in price and specification. A dirty and mouldy MUGA surface can result in poor slip resistance. The netball court can be renovated or refurbished by a rotary high pressure wash with an anti fungicidal treatment applied. This will restore the anti slip properties and improve the aesthetics of the all weather pitch. New sports lines can be remarked using appropriate acrylic coatings after a full clean or new ball court surface has been installed. Size, specification and design will all affect the cost of the refurbishment.
The bigger the court, the bigger the floodlights that you may need. Luminaries are to be taken into account as you want the floodlight to shine at the correct level for longer. Life time maintenance cost will all need to be taken into account, along with the LUX recommended levels. These are 200 for Football, 350 for Hockey & 250 for Tennis. Sports fencing can be replaced or repaired depending on specification and cost issues. A recommended sports fence is a 3m super rebound with access gates. However, existing fence panels can be replaced and repaired if budgets restrict.
