With a huge surge in the popularity of the sport after the success of the Olympic Games and a growing number of clubs, it’s essential to have the right outdoor netball courts available to play on. Netball is a fast-paced game that requires a high-performance surface that is safe and will not deteriorate due to the intense physical nature of the sport.
Macadam court surfacing is used in a large number of sports facilities in the UK and offers a hard-wearing, cost-effective solution for a variety of sports including netball. It can be sprayed with a range of line markings and is available in a choice of colours. Macadam surfacing is usually laid with a porous sub-base which consists of reduced fines angular stone and allows rain water to soak through the surface, helping to prevent flooding of the courts and keeping them in use throughout the year.
