The first waste plastic tennis courts

by plasticwastetenniscourts in

Roundwood Tennis Club is a small community club in Ipswich, Suffolk with a growing junior membership and an urgent need to resurface their 3 asphalt courts.

Roundwood is looking to become a pilot scheme to use new technology developed by MacRebur (Virgin Media Business Start Up Voom Winner 2016) which replaces bitumen content of asphalt using plastic waste instead. The MacRebur product MR6 is being increasingly used in road resurfacing as it is cheaper, much more environmentally friendly, stronger and longer lasting than bitumen based asphalt. Replacing bitumen with MR6 for our 3 courts will save 30 tonnes of carbon emissions and approximately 300,000 plastic bottles from going to landfill.

It is becoming increasingly difficult for small clubs to survive as funding through tennis channels (e.g. LTA) tends to go to larger initiatives. Also, poor court conditions result in tennis players leaving clubs and taking up alternative sports.

Roundwood has already raised £15k and we need to raise a further £10k to enable the project to go ahead and to continue to offer tennis to the local community.
