Air Dome Update 10 March10 March 2020
The concrete beam for the air dome has now been laid with places for the fans and revolving air tight door. The slab for the storage shed has still to be laid and this should be done tomorrow (11 March).
On Thursday the shuttering will be removed and on Friday the fencers will arrive to reinstate the surround netting using as many of the existing uprights as possible to save costs but with brand new netting.
The fencing will be ongoing into next week and once that is done the areas outside the courts will be gravelled and paved as necessary.
On Tuesday evening an external lighting consultant will be double checking that the lighting is set correctly.
There will then be some general tidying up so that the everything will be spic and span for the re-opening of the courts hopefully the weekend of 21st/22nd March.
Please do not be tempted to play on the courts until you get the final go ahead.
Thanks for your patience during the work – hopefully you have not been too inconvenienced and we will reap the benefits once the dome is installed at the end of September.
