Margaret River Recreation Centre – Sports Floor Renewal

Upgrades to the Margaret River Recreation Centre’s sports courts will commence early next month after last week’s decision to award the contract to local suppliers AMR Timber Flooring.

The 2019/20 Sports Floor Renewal project works will focus on the upgrade and renewal of the existing timber sports floor on Courts 1, 2 and 3 in the recreation centre.

Shire of Augusta Margaret River Recreation Operations Manager, Dylan Brown said the scope of works will include drum sanding the courts, replacing and fixing damaged boards, remarking court lines, and resealing the courts with a hard wearing floor sealer. 

“This complete renewal has never been undertaken on the courts since they were built in the late 1980’s early 1990’s and will greatly benefit the longevity of the courts when combined with the current annual maintenance schedule. The works will take place between 6 December 2019 and 24 December 2019,” he said.

“Unfortunately that means the courts will be closed during this time with no public access, however the courts will be reopened on Monday 30 December after the Christmas closure with a brand new playing surface that will greatly benefit the community and increase the standard of play”.
