Boosting sports opportunities for Alleyn Court Preparatory School

Here at ETC Sports we always love to witness a client’s delight at their brand new MUGA Construction. In particular, nothing makes us happier than being able to support Alleyn Court Preparatory School children’s physical health and education by equipping their school with a MUGA that will serve them for decades to come.

That’s why we’re so proud to have completed a fabulous, fun and fully functional Multi Use Games Area for Alleyn Court Preparatory School, a co-educational school for pupils aged from 2 to 11 years. The school prides itself on the provision of excellent sporting opportunities. Its numerous facilities include football, rugby, hockey, cricket and athletics – and now, with our help, it has added state-of-the-art new tennis and netball pitches to its portfolio.

To read more about the project & opening day then please read our press release.

Alleyn Court Preparatory School had originally found our information from our website and contacted us directly. After a few meetings and variations to the specification a decision was made by the school in late Spring to use ETC Sports for it’s services.

Also in place is a three year maintenance agreement with the school so that we can look after their new tennis court surface and help prolong the lifespan. Tennis court maintenance is extremely important as lack of maintenance can not only reduce the life of the surface by up to 50%, but it can affect the performance of the surface and also become a Health & Safety hazard to the end user.

We were delighted the school chose us to resurface their existing tennis courts and the new colours make the tennis courts unique with their pink & blue combination to match the school colours.

Quote from Toby Duffin, Bursar of Alleyn Court Preparatory School

“From quotation stage through to signing-off, ETC were a pleasure to work with” he says. “It was an initial concern having the work done during term time but, once on site, the ETC site team had no impact on the day to day life of the school. ETC’s site manager and team were approachable, safe, tidy, and kept the school updated at every stage of the build. Our unusual colour scheme choice was no challenge for ETC, providing the school with an extremely high quality, striking playing surface. The level of service only encouraged us to enter into an on-going relationship with ETC, in terms of future developments and on-going maintenance of our surfaces.”

“There’s no doubt about it, this is definitely one of our favourite projects this year! We wish the pupils of Alleyn Court every success in their sporting endeavours, and hope to have the pleasure of working with them again in the near future.”
