Edgbaston Priory gets Australian Open surface.
Tennis court specialists Plexipave (UK) have recently installed their Plexicushion Prestige surface in the new six-court indoor facility at Edgbaston Priory Club, Birmingham. The High Performance Centre now has the same surface as the Australian Open tournament.
As part of major redevelopment plans for the club, the L.T.A. has invested up to £5million to support and develop the clubs performance programme. The development will also include a permanent grass show court used for the pre-Wimbledon international AEGON classic women’s event.
Plexicushion Prestige was chosen to provide players with a Grand Slam surface offering the highest levels of performance and cushioning.
The cushioned base is a special blend of latex, rubber and plastic particles, forming resilient layers that absorb body shock and reduces muscle fatigue. The finished Plexipave surface provides a consistent and uniform bounce, long lasting colour, outstanding durability and allows the speed of play to be specified.
