Poraflex court in Reading


Despite the rain, we have been most impressed with the quality of work and efficiency of your firm. Your resurfacing team was quite outstanding in the commitment to execute at the highest standard. The work rate and dedication were quite astonishing.
It has been a pleasure dealing with Academy Sports. This is such an unusual statement to make, as all too often these days complaints about unacceptable work and standards are just too common.
Mr T G J,  Kingwood,  Henley on Thames - June 2012
Having a dual role as coach as well as chairman, I was at the club nearly every day during the tennis court resurfacing work, and was able to witness the work as it was carried out on the bases, carpet, fences, gates and edgings. I have to say that not only was the quality of the work excellent, but the conduct of all of your staff was exemplary
Pit Farm Tennis Club, Guildford, Surrey – October 2009
It is not often I feel compelled to put pen to paper and comment on a company’s professional performance. As a family we would collectively like to thank you all for building our beautiful tennis court. It truly is as you promised it would be.
On a personal note, however I would like to commend you all without exception. Being the individual involved with dealing with Academy Sports from the outset, I would just like to say what a wonderful experience the entire process has been despite the efforts of my local planners who tried to hinder progress every step of the way
Mr A P, North Chailey, East Sussex – August 2009
Following your visit this morning to “hand over” our new court, I thought I would drop you this line to say how pleased we are with the work done by Academy Sports. From your first visit last year to the hand over this morning it has been very clear that you have a very professional as well as experienced and caring team. We particularly appreciated how for each stage of the process the people who came were experts in that particular aspect and were excellent at describing the issues and how they were resolving them
Mr J H, Haywards Heath, East Sussex – April 2009
Just a quick note to thank you for finishing our tennis court. We are absolutely delighted with it. The green colouring was definitely the right choice and although we have had only limited opportunities to use it during the winter it appears to have settled really well.
Please pass on our thanks to all of your team who I have to say were very clean and tidy given the amount of tarmac they had to shift!
Mr S K, Witley, Surrey – May 2008
Your constructive approach in helping us resolve the problem both quickly and with minimum disruption to the club’s activities was very much appreciated by everyone.
Your unconditional help in this matter was very much appreciated and we commend your company for its professionalism and high standard.
Alfold Tennis Club, Surrey – May 2008
Very many thanks to you and your staff for the wonderful job you did putting right the work of the previous contractor. We are particularly mindful that despite not getting the original contract you were still prepared to come on site and go to great lengths to help us sort out the awful problems we were left with. You have restored our confidence in your trade! My only regret is that we didn’t use your company in the first place, which as you know was due to timescale.
Mr & Mrs D H, West Byfleet, Surrey – October 2006
I have been super impressed with your team and their efficiency, their time keeping and most importantly their friendliness and tidiness.
Mr & Mrs G, Watlington, Oxfordshire – May 2006
I should also like to express my appreciation of how little disruption the work caused to school life and that you were able to deliver on time.
Longacre School, Shamley Green, Surrey – January 2006
A huge thank you to you, and all those who contributed to the construction. Whilst we have undergone numerous projects involving outside contractors over the past years, Academy Sports excels itself on professionalism, integrity and customer satisfaction.
Mr & Mrs R M, Walton on the Hill, Surrey – October 2005
Just a brief note to thank you, Matthew, and all your staff for the excellent work in constructing our new synthetic grass court within our required timescales and to the agreed price.
We also wish to thank you for your adaptability and consideration pre and post the placing of the contract. In particular, we wish to express our gratitude for your flexibility which greatly assisted with our cash-flow problems.
NPL Sports Club, Teddington, Middlesex – August 2005
You were on time and on budget and, in case I forger to mention it, the court is a delight to play on.
The idea of using the railway sleepers to create a rural feel to the walls works really, really well.  It was a difficult brief to create a court from wasteland on a hill but the result is wonderful.
Mr R P, Wivelrod, Hampshire – May 2005
Everything has gone smoothly and according to timetable. Your contractors have been polite and most considerate of our needs. They have taken great care to ensure the safety of our children. My fear that the site would be left in a bit of a mess and that we would need to spend money on landscaping was completely unfounded.
Laleham Church of England Primary School, Middlesex – April 2005
Without exception all of your staff involved with sorting out our tennis court have been prompt, courteous and reliable. I wish all companies treated their clients so well. A real credit to you!
Mrs D L, Kingston, Surrey – July 2004
Everyone is delighted by it – there was even a message on our local e-mail system (Horsley News) thanking the Parish Council for what we have done (they really should have been thanking you!). From my point of view, it has been remarkably hassle-free and I thank you for that. I would certainly recommend you to anyone wanting that sort of work done.
West Horsley Parish Council, Surrey – June 2002
I felt very privileged to know that the same man who resurfaces the courts for the Australian Open every year was doing my own domestic surface.
Mr C A, Enton, Godalming, Surrey  - July 2001
As far as I am concerned, it is the “after sales” service that you provide that impresses as much as the work itself.
Mr C B, Steventon, Hampshire – June 2000
I rarely in this day and age have cause to write and thank people for excellent work but on this occasion it is well merited.
Mr M L, Sutton Green, Surrey – June 2000
Can I take this opportunity to thank you for your efforts. The facilities have proved to be very popular, and have justified our decision to choose Clockhouse Lane to be our first site.
I was pleased that the construction went smoothly, and the prompt attention when problems arose was particularly satisfying.
Spelthorne Borough Council, Middlesex – July 1998
It would be inappropriate for me not to record my extreme satisfaction and gratitude for a ‘job well done’. As a developer, other than quality of product which is a pre-requisite, I have only two principal concerns, timing and budget, your company has not set a foot wrong on either.
Mr J B, Godalming, Surrey - March 1998
The final result is a high quality, versatile playing area which is already being fully utilised by the youth within Pyrford.
You are very pleasant people to deal with. You are efficient, flexible and expert and on top of this you offer good value for money!
Pyrford Guides and Scouts Parents Association, Surrey – November 1997
Your team did the work with the minimum of fuss and disruption and, from and aesthetic point of view, the court works well with the rest of the garden and the fields.
It is always very reassuring to have just one or two contacts from start to finish and you were both always available and completely “au-fait’ with work in progress. What a pleasure to deal with a company which is consistently courteous and bends over backwards to fix problems.
Mr & Mrs A R, Henley, Oxfordshire – June 1997
Ours was not a straight forward project. The access difficulties alone would have deterred a less professional company. Your attitude that it presented a ‘challenge’ was most refreshing and undeniably lived up to expectations!!
As with any major construction in a quiet residential area it is important to maintain decent relations with neighbours and you helped us to achieve this. Materials were delivered when you told us they would arrive and disruption was therefore kept to a minimum.
Mr & Mrs I N, Esher, Surrey – August 1996
It has been a pleasure to do business with you both and we have been most impressed with the professional and courteous manner in which you carried out the contract. Good customer service is not always easy to find, but you have given me no cause for complaint whatsoever. Particularly satisfying was the fact that your men arrived on site when you said they would and completed the job efficiently and to the agreed timescale.
Mr J G F, Crawley, West Sussex – August 1995
We are delighted with the results and we have been very impressed with the professional manner in which the work has been carried out.
Kodak Recreation Society, Middlesex – June 1994
