Grimshaw have just started work on a new grass tennis court.  The majority of tennis courts now tend to be hard surface but there is nothing quite like the traditional feel, look and sound of a well constructed grass court.  A grass court is also easier on the body and lends itself to serve-and-volley style of play.

Understandably preparation is all and a key component is the provision of adequate drainage to allow the court to dry out uniformly.

The client is a Queens Club member where they can boast a selection of 27 outdoor courts including 12 grass.  The Club established in 1886 can be claimed to be “the first multipurpose sports complex ever to be built, anywhere in the world.”

All major tennis tournaments were originally played on grass and it was only in the 1940's that the first hard courts were used in official tournaments.  Of course we are all looking forward to Wimbledon and wondering if it might be Murrays chance to win.
