The Ministry of Defence has turned to ETC Sports Surfaces, Pitch & Track and long term sports court fencing partner Zaun to help keep the Armed Forces in shape.
The trio supplies ball courts, tennis courts and Multi-Use Games Areas (MUGA) at three military bases around the country.
ETC is installing ball courts at MoD bases in Plymouth and Portsmouth, while RAF Alconbury near Huntingdon is getting a MUGA and tennis courts.
The tennis courts for the RAF will be some of the first in the country to employ Zaun’s enhanced tennis mesh.
Zaun is the only UK manufacturer of bespoke tennis mesh – and has upgraded its machining capability to reduce manufacturing timescales and lead times drastically.
Zaun’s Advantage Tennis mesh eliminates many of the downsides of traditional tennis chain link fencing, which deforms over time and is easy to cut, disfigure and vandalise.
By contrast, Zaun’s mesh can withstand heavy use while allowing easy viewing of the on-court action. It uses a 200mm x 40mm twin wire mesh that is small enough to prevent tennis balls from passing through, thus improving gameplay and ball retention.
