Courtcraft were proud to be chosen by Willmot Dixon to help design and install six Innov8 wall panel system squash courts. As well as having one manual moving wall the courts are also finished off with Boen Squash flooring and Ellis Pearson glass backed walls. All courts have been built and independently assessed to meet the World Squash Federation play and technical standards.
The Hub comprises a sports hall, swimming pool, fitness suites and flexible studio spaces, outdoor 3G sports pitches and netball courts. It is also the official training ground of Coventry’s Wasps Netball Super League team. This project was Courtcraft’s largest ever sports contract where they not only installed six innovative squash courts but also over 3,500m2 of Boen Sports flooring.
At the front and centre of the £36 million facility lies the squash courts, which already play host to top-class squash, after the University of Warwick tied up with Kenilworth Squash Club to form an elite squad, which has just completed its second season in the PSL, finishing top of the six-strong Northern Division. The placement of the courts is perhaps a nod to squash’s overall success in Warwickshire, which has a “booming” culture, according to Steve Townsend (Head Coach at Warwick Sport) thanks to clubs which employ committed coaches. They are now seeing player numbers increase because of it.
