Grassports installs Laykold Advantage courts at Melbourne’s Wesley College

Grassports installs Laykold Advantage courts at Melbourne’s Wesley College
May 20, 2020

Grassports Australia has completed a transformation of the outdoor netball courts at Melbourne’s Wesley College, installing impact absorbing Laykold Advantage surfaces from APT Asia Pacific.

The re-surfacing of the school’s four outdoor tennis courts complete with netball lines, using the top-of-the range Australian-made playing surface, is available for use by the more than 1,000 pupils at the school as well as for regular Saturday sport competitions.

Commenting on the project, Grassports Australia Managing Director, Bernard Evans explained “Grassports was engaged by the school because of our reputation in completing other projects at the school over many years with fantastic outcomes.”

“With the existing courts worn out, base rectifications were completed before the new acrylic surfacing could be applied.”

APT (Advanced Polymer Technology) is the leading global manufacturer of polyurethane-based materials, acrylic coatings and synthetic turf products for sporting and recreational applications.

With a range of synthetic sport surfaces, over 100,000 metres² of Laykold surface have been installed worldwide since it was introduced in 1970. The USTA recently announced Laykold as the new surface of US Open.
