Greenacre Leisure

Court covers bosst membership

With two double canopies measuring 36m by 37m by 9m high – CopriSystem’s largest to date – Greenacre Leisure Health and Fitness has covered four tennis courts – and boosted membership.

Within 18 months of installing two double canopies, Newbury-based, Greenacre Leisure Health and Fitness is reaping increased subscriptions and club membership.

Structurally, the court covers are designed in pairs: two single covers are connected along one side by a system of arches and central supports, leaving the two courts open plan. The cover is maintained in tension, ensuring a smooth finish to the fabric. This design allows the sides along the full length of the court to be opened to a height of 2m, increasing ventilation even in the hottest weather.

The white roof offers maximum translucency while the green sides and ends provide an ideal backdrop to the yellow tennis ball and allows the complete building to blend well with its surroundings. Lighting has been installed to provide year-round day and night play. Durable and practical, the BS5438-tested heavy duty PVC-coated polyester fabric is supported on a galvanised steel frame.

“The covers have helped improve the look and feel of the club in general. We now have a successful and thriving tennis programme”.

Steve Thompson – Owner of Greenacre Leisure

“We have a unique product here at Greenacre Leisure. Having all four courts covered means that people can play tennis all year round. There is nothing like it around Newbury”.

Stephen Dodridge – General Manager
