Dear Mark,

On behalf of Hambleden Tennis Club a very BIG thank you to you, the crew and everyone involved in resurfacing our 3 tennis courts. During Covid this was a challenging time, as you not only agreed to take on this project at short notice, but you were most accommodating and understanding and helped us phase the work so that we always had use of a court. The last thing we wanted was to close all courts just as people were getting out again and allowed to play tennis after the lockdown period. Together we arrived at the best possible solution!

We were all impressed by the friendly and courteous crew, the working site and external storage area was kept tidy throughout the project, and I would like to mention both Tom and Phil who were fantastic. Not only did we have Covid to contend with but also quite hot weather as well as wet weather during the works which was not easy. Communication was key and again, we could not fault it.

We are absolutely delighted with the result and would have no hesitation in recommending Charles Lawrence to anyone considering having work done on tennis courts.

2020 has certainly proved a challenging year for everyone, having to adapt and accept a new way of life dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. Not being able to see loved ones and being furloughed from work , not being able to go out and see friends for a drink, or for a meal at your favourite restaurant, life has been very difficult at times and has had a huge impact on our well being and mental state. Even under all these difficult restraints imposed upon us here at Charles Lawrence Tennis Courts we are pleased to say that our business has thrived this has been down mainly down to our customers wanting to invest in a new court for their home or to refurbish their existing court and make use of the facility over the lock down period.

As restrictions eased we were able to progress contracts for Schools and Tennis clubs over the Autumn period where they had been put on hold initially, we would like to express our thanks and gratitude for our customers staying loyal throughout and working with us through this difficult time. A huge thanks to our dedicated workforce for adapting to different working procedures and patience whilst working through difficult period.

We are all looking forward now to a well earned break and will enjoy whatever Christmas we can, hopefully it will be with family and friends. We look forward to some exciting projects for next season.
Back To Stadiums?

The Coronavirus outbreak has taken over the world this year, with everyone in all sectors being somewhat affected. One area being particularly affected is sport and sporting events in particular. We all hear about the premier league being affected now that fans aren’t allowed in the stands supporting their favourite teams, but it’s the lower leagues that are taking the hardest hit. The primary concern is that wages that represent a huge proportion of turnover and clubs, rely heavily on match day income that is currently being denied to them and fixtures are being played behind closed doors.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson planned to reintroduce spectators to sports events from October 1st , however now has been pushed back following the recent news of the rise in numbers from the virus. This news initially was welcomed particularly after the Prime Minister has been criticized on the failure on the ‘track-and-trace’ system which has delayed fans getting back into the stands. Unfortunately it looks like we’ll be waiting another 6 months.

There is good news however, Premier League managers including Jurgen Klopp and Frank Lampard have called for footballs elite to unite to help lower league clubs through the financial impact. Stating that ‘the strong should look after the weak’. While the back bone of football has been struggling, only time will tell whether things will pick back up.
Back To School

We have all had to get used to our fair share of changes this year, with schools and education taking a huge hit and turn. From exams being cancelled to learning and working from home, COVID-19 has challenged the education sector with children from all ages feeling the brunt of it. But how are we moving forward?

Well there is a lot to adapt to, as we are all aware, from parents to teachers all learning a new thing or two. There have been mixed emotions as to the thought of retuning back to school; fear, excitement, and relief. After the first couple of weeks back to school have gone by it seems like a success so far, not without its teething troubles, of course. Guidelines are still very rough at the moment, but we know a few things that are definitely happening. Schools will certainly look vastly different, with one-way systems, screens keeping pupils apart and staggered lesson and break times. And after the long break since they last attended lessons, teachers are having to assess how much pupils will need to catch up. As regards to face masks, well there is still a lot of debate around that.

A lot of schools are introducing ‘bubbles’ for students, with as many as 300 in one bubble. Being the whole year group, with each ‘bubble’ having their staggered lunches, lessons and even use of their own corridors, it is the only way forward we can have schools opened as they are.

As schools start to get underway again, we are still busier than ever. After a hugely successful and busy summer, the shorter night’s drawing in and the weather turning more autumnal, it will not be without its challenges. With summer being our busiest time, particularly with schools during the holidays, we’ve really been put to the test. With our company growing more than ever, we are just as excited to look forward to the future and see what the winter months leading up to the new year can bring us.
5 Main Reasons your school needs a Multi-Use Games Area

A multi use games area (MUGA) is a popular sports facility often found in parks and schools, which provides a variety of different markings and equipment in one area, making it possible to play a number of different sports. They are perfect for spots with smaller recreational space and are suitable for children of all ages.

MUGAs come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but the two main types are composed of either artificial grass or hardcourt. Hardcourt MUGAs usually have built-in football goals and basketball hoops, and are surrounded by metal fencing to keep the ball in the arena. MUGAs composed of artificial grass, however, tend to be much larger and lend themselves to sports such as tennis, hockey, netball or even athletics.

Both varieties of MUGAs provide a great number of benefits to the schools in which they are installed and, in this article, we will detail the five top reasons why your school needs a MUGA.

Save space

One of the problems with independent sports areas, is that a school may end up having two or three pitches which are the same size and perform roughly the same role. That is, your football pitch – provided the right markings and equipment are on hand – could double up as a tennis or netball court, too. This is where a MUGA comes in: a sports area which can utilise space in the most economical fashion.

Save money

Not only does a MUGA save space, but it also saves money. Instead of spending lots of cash on different sports-specific surfaces, a MUGA is composed of a versatile surface which can accommodate a variety of sports, saving a huge amount of money. What’s more, some sporting equipment such as goals and flags can be included in the structure of the MUGA itself, which means you save on equipment, too.

Seamless sports

If you’re strapped for time and you would want to play two sports in the same session – or you would like two different games being played at the same time – MUGAs are the perfect way to achieve this. Some MUGAS allow for lengthways and widthways games, meaning that you could have two games playing widthways simultaneously, followed by a single, larger lengthways one.

Additional income

MUGAs may not only benefit the children in providing a versatile sports arena, but it could also present your school with an additional stream of income if rented out. Thanks to the arena’s versatility, your MUGA can be rented out to the public for a number of different sports after school hours, generating more money for the school and your students’ sports curriculum.

Easy maintenance

Finally, MUGAs are easy to maintain! For starters, you only have to maintain one area instead of two or three, instantly reducing the upkeep time and costs; secondly, hardcourt and artificial grass are, on the whole, very hard wearing surfaces which last a long time, significantly increasing the ROI of your sports area. However, if you think your MUGA is looking a little weathered, professional MUGA maintenance is a solid option.

If you think your school would benefit from a new MUGA, Charles Lawrence can help. We construct the finest tennis courts, basketball courts and MUGAs in the UK, putting 30 years of experience to use each time a playing surface is laid. We take pride in our courts, understanding that, whether they’re used by school children or Olympic athletes, our clients deserve the best in the business. So, contact our friendly team today!
