In the past Tennis World has served up several Wimbledon aces, now Middlesbrough's largest independent tennis club has had its first makeover in 30 years. In 2018 Tennis World was given a six-figure "new lease of life" with world-standard indoor and outdoor courts. Tennis World is unique in having 4 indoor and 6 outdoor courts. T h e r e c e n t r e f u r b i s h m e n t would enable a brand-new suite of playing surfaces to be installed delivering both top performance and playability. In providing new courts the choice of playing surfaces where the general public and future champions could practice and compete on would be crucial. Tennis World would ultimately choose Yorkshire-based Playrite to supply their Matchplay 2 product to meet and surpass their stringent requirements. Playrite
