Civic Trust Awards Commendation February 26, 2008

The 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.
