When the Sportime Group purchased the existing eight court tennis facility, they decided to renovate to suit the needs of the customers. Sportime converted one of the tennis courts into a multi-purpose area for basketball, volleyball, and indoor soccer. And they didn't stop there, Sportime renovated the entire interior of the building adding dedicated spaces for aerobics, fitness and other key areas as well as all new locker rooms and offices. Sportime also added a new outdoor pool and clubhouse. While doing this major overhaul to the facility, outdoor tennis courts were needed to add to the overall program.
Sportime contacted Indoor Courts of America to fulfill their need. Indoor Courts of America designed a four-court bubble on the backside of the existing land plot, which was a challenge due to setbacks, and proximity of the existing building. Nevertheless, within a time period of approximately six months this project was designed and built with the customer playing tennis at the end of that time period.
The air structure was designed with steep walls to accomodate for maximum clearance over the baseline area while utilizing pendent mount indirect light fixtures. Indoor Courts of America incorporated a 12-foot blue background along the interior liner to simulate backdrop curtains, which allows for better contrast while playing tennis. Indoor Courts of America can use several different colors, blue just happened to be the Sportime club color.
