The community courts are almost ready for opening day. Just a few more finishing touches, and the fun begins! This community sports court located in Mercer Island, WA, required a significant makeover. BauerCombs Landscape Architecture teamed up with Charlie Coatsworth Architects and Rich Landscaping, Inc. to transform the aging sports court as a destination hub for the community.
Landscape architect, Susan Combs Bauer, provided expertise with local codes for the permitting process, access layout, hardscape design, landscape design, and water calculation requirements. The renovated recreation area features a basketball court, four-square courts, hopscotch, tennis court, and a shade pavilion.
VersaCourt tile systems were selected as the perfect solution for resurfacing the old cracked and outdated courts. This new tile system is a gentler option to typical hard courts. VersaCourt states, “the systems slight vertical flex and side-to-side movement provides forgiveness for knees, joints and lower backs, reducing the chance of injury during competitive play.” The tile system has also been tested and rated by the International Tennis Federation (ITF).
We are pleased with the work accomplished and are looking forward to opening day. More photos and a video of the first game will follow!
