Build up and delivery
Peebles worked very hard to raise funds for the full works which comprised the formation of three new courts with LED floodlights. The artificial clay surface has to be laid onto a porous asphalt base and the club worked hard to secure funds to deliver the project in one contract. However, when the first fund raise was completed it became apparent that they could only deliver the base surface and lighting and that the artificial clay surface would have to be delivered as a second phase. Doe worked closely with the club to agree costs, ensure the club could continue to play on the asphalt surface with temporary lines and then worked closely on budgeting and timing to support the club through the additional fund raising. Phase 1 was completed in 2018 with funding support from Sportscotland and the Scottish Landfill Communities Fund. The club then played for one season on the tarmac courts before Doe returned and laid the Lano Grand Clay surface. This was completed in Summer of 2019 and has proven very popular with Peebles proudly allowing other clubs to visit and play test the surface.
