A WINNING PARTNERSHIP
A winning sports centre is the realised dream of one Queensland school that has students covered from the pool to the court.
Located in the suburb of Waterford in Queensland, Canterbury College is a coeducational school delivering holistic academic and cocurricular excellence to students from kindergarten through year 12. Offering a healthy and diverse sport programme in which all students are encouraged to participate, Canterbury College needed the amenities to meet their growing programme needs.
With a dream of building a sports centre to support their training and competition agenda, Canterbury College commissioned Jordin Sports Constructions to make its dream a reality. Building a complex that comprised eight competition-standard tennis courts, a 10-lane Olympic-size swimming pool with spectator stands and change rooms, the Canterbury College Sports Centre now meets the needs of athletes of all ages and abilities in winning style.
Utilising Rebound Ace Synpave sports surface in Ocean Blue and Byron Blue colour combinations provided the school with an economic solution for their competition-ready tennis courts. Synonymous with tennis, as the official preferred surfacing system of the International Tennis Federation, Synpave sets the benchmark for sports courts across Australia and around the world. Suitable for use across a range of courts including tennis, multisport, netball, basketball and pickleball, among others, Synpave was a durable and long-term surfacing option for Canterbury College that supports high-performance play.
Provided by ICP Group Australasia, a leading manufacturer of specialty coatings, adhesives and sealants serving the construction and industrial sectors, Synpave is a durable, slip-resistant, UV-stable and low-maintenance product that provides a superior playing surface. The system can also be tailored with cushioned and non-cushioned courts to suit all levels of performance and budget.
Overcoming a few false starts and a number of site challenges — not to mentioned an untimely global pandemic — the Canterbury College Sports Centre is now up and running thanks to the winning combination of Jordin Sports Constructions and Rebound Ace Synpave.
An outstanding centre by anyone’s competition standards, the new home of the Taipans Swimming and Tennis Clubs and Tiny Taipans Swim School will stand at #1 for years to come.
