Mapei the power beneath the 2017 Burnie International

Mapei the power beneath the 2017 Burnie International
May 8, 2017

Held earlier this year, the 2017 Burnie International tennis tournament not only provided sporting spectacle but also served as a showcase for the Mapei Mapecoat TNS surface.

Held at the Burnie Tennis Club in Tasmania, the Burnie International features an ATP Challenger and ITF Pro Circuit women’s event.

Created in 2003 as the McDonalds Burnie International, the event has been held every year except 2016 when the courts were closed for a major upgrade.

This upgrade saw the installation of the Mapecoat TNS Cushioned multi-layered acrylic resin system, with its unique water dispersion properties, on the Burnie Tennis Club’s 11 courts and four Hot Shot tennis courts.

Completed in ‘Australian Open blue’ the upgrade was welcomed by executives from the Association of Tennis Professional, the International Tennis Federation, Tennis Australia, the Club and players and officials of the tournament.

Commenting on the project, Mapei Australia Pty Ltd National Product Manager Neil McIntosh explained “it was amazing to be a part of the tournament and it was even more pleasing to receive positive feedback from the people who counted - the players and officials.

“For Mapei it was a significant step in the right direction to competing in the main arena of tennis within Australia.”

Part of the growth of the Mapei Mapecoat TNS product range has not only been to secure tennis courts and multipurpose courts around Australia but to also attain prestige projects.

McIntosh adds “for this reason it was extremely satisfying and important that the Burnie International was completed in the ‘Mapecoat TNS’ product. “

Recently Mapei have completed the Carrara Tennis Academy on the Gold Coast; Woodriff Gardens Tennis Centre in Penrith, NSW and the sub-regioanl Gympie Tennis Centre.
