New Plaster Courts
CourtCare was delighted to be appointed specialist contractors for this exciting new four-court facility at Scarborough Rugby Union Football Club, adding to the already excellent sports facilities at this long-established club. Scarborough Squash & Racquets Club is now based at the new £400,000 building.
The development of the academy was funded principally by the McCabe Family Charitable Foundation, with support from Scarborough Borough Council and a number of other local businesses.
Founder (and co-owner of Sheffield United) Kevin McCabe said the academy will be “an exciting addition to a new era of leisure facilities in the town, and will form an important contribution to both the economic and social development of our community”
A traditionally-built masonry construction was chosen for the structure, with external brickwork elevations to match the existing buildings at Silver Royd. We worked closely at design stage with local Architect Howard Acklam to specify the best World Squash Federation approved products for this type of building: Armourcoat plaster, playlines & tins; Ellis Pearson glass back walls and Junckers SylvaSquash flooring.
GMI Construction were main contractors – the entire build and squash court installation programme being completed in under three months.
