Most of the work in the last few weeks has been to the clubhouse, and more recently building up the ramp and steps leading from the club entrance to the clubhouse.  Chiltern Group were expecting to start work early on courts 1-4 but have been put off until some more retaining structures are in place.  Carters and Chiltern are still on track though.

 

The roof is nearly finished on the clubhouse.

I hope you can visualise how the club is going to look now that the levels are nearly done.  Carter’s are expecting Chiltern Group to be back w/c 29th March to start laying courts 1-4.

A couple of pictures taken from the top of the huge mound.

The most signicant work this week has been on the area where courts 1 and 2 will be.  Carter Construction have been building up the levels, just as they’ve done for courts 3 and 4.

The focus this week is on the public courts, which are nearly ready for play.  The fence is up, we’ve got some new nets and some rough lines have been drawn.
These aren’t the finished article, they’ll need to be painted in a few weeks.

Resurfacing of public courts hasn’t yet started; expect an update in week 5.    This is a change from last week, but the good news is the time to resurface the public courts is less than originally planned.

 

It was good to see our architect up at the site today having a meeting with Carters.
