Bellingara Netball Courts were in need of a large-scale renovation, after the facilities began to fall below the standards required for optimal play. After many years of continued use, the court’s asphalt surfaces were showing signs of wear and tear – so the owners decided to take action and implement a complete restoration in time for the upcoming netball season.
This time-sensitive project required the removal of asphalt on four netball courts, covering a total area of 2,500m2. Following the laying and curing of a new asphaltic concrete in two layers, the new acrylic surfaces needed to be applied and match-ready in time for the upcoming season.
Polytan began the sports surface reconstruction by removing 50mm of existing asphalt from site, before commencing two stages of work laying the new asphaltic concrete and reinstallation of the eight existing netball posts.
Once the asphalt had adequate time to cure, a Laykold Deep Patch was installed to marry the new asphalt to the existing courts, followed by a Laykold Resurfacer basecoat, and finally two coats of Laykold Advantage acrylic netball surfacing in Medium Green with Dark Green surrounds. Line-marking done, the successful refurbishment was complete.
