Civic Trust Awards Commendation February 26, 2008The National Tennis Centre has been received a Commendation in the Civic Trust Awards.
The scheme provides a new facility housing tennis courts, gymnasia and support functions.
The complex is well placed within a mature landscaped area. The building shows a masterly use of a limited range of materials, including glass, steel, timber and concrete, highlighted by the tented roofs.
A cloistered courtyard around an historic tree provides a public space, whilst the glazed entrance offers views across the landscape.
This is a carefully detailed scheme which provides facilities to both local and international players.
