SAPCA The Sports & Play Construction Association     This website features very many of the Companies associated with all aspects of Tennis in the UK. Clearly it does not show every company, however, it is the  single most comprehensive website available in the UK for those associated with tennis court construction.

SAPCA’s membership criteria ensure that only specialist contractors, with a proven track record and trading history can be admitted.  Through inspection of applicants’ work, SAPCA checks that contractors have the requisite expertise and experience and can offer the clients the necessary high standards of workmanship.  NB It is important to remember that all organisations apply for SAPCA membership.

Planning Permission. It is essential to obtain planning permission for all installations, the majority will need local authority/or similar agreement.

‘Portable lighting’ systems often do not need permission.

The ‘Tweener Lighting’ system is one which some local authorities accept without a requirement for planning permission.

The benefits of upgrading older type installations to LED’s are very cost effective. Speak to any reputable supplier regarding the costs and savings.
