Principal Contractor


Located 3.5 miles from Wimbledon’s Centre Court, the 20-acre Raynes Park community sports ground currently features six grass courts and six acrylic hard courts – three of which are covered by an inflatable pressurised dome in order to ensure year-round usage. It hosts a range of AELTC events, including the Wimbledon Junior Tennis Initiative, ball boy and ball girl training sessions and an extensive community tennis programme.

Our scope of works on the 66-week project has involved redeveloping the current grassland area into 16 new Championship-standard grass courts and three acrylic courts. This has involved carrying out:

• Surfacing for Championship-quality lawn tennis courts

• Construction of acrylic tennis courts, including a new air dome and associated enclosures

• Construction of a new haul road

• Excavation works

• Drainage installation

• Utility works

• Ring beam construction

• Footpath resurfacing works

• Construction of Maintenance building and access road to Cannon Hill Lane
