Flooring the Falkland IslandsIt’s been a very busy time recently in the world of sports flooring, with demand increasing from sports centres and indoor arenas after the recent Olympics and with the advent of the Commonwealth Games on the horizon in Glasgow 2014. Whatever the size or type of sports floor and wherever it might be required, we’re experience in installing sports flooring to locations across the UK. We’ve even recently agreed to send some members of our team to an extremely far flung destination – the Falkland Islands. Despite the difficulties raised by their location being 400 miles off the south-eastern tip of South America, the sports centre in Stanley in the Falkland Islands is due to receive a high quality installation of Gerflor sports flooring in the very near future.

Much further north, we’ve recently fitted Junckers sports flooring at the acclaimed Tollcross Aquatic Centre in Glasgow. This is a major swimming centre that will host many international competitions and has been extensively refurbished for the Commonwealth Games with a new 50m six lane warm up and training pool. The centre will be a training facility for the future both for athletes and for the local community, and a much admired centre of excellence for swimming.

Some of our intrepid 30 strong team of fitters have also been visiting London to install a fully reclaimed sports floor at the Basketball Centre in Lewisham. Steve Bucknall set up the Lewisham Thunder club to enable the talented youngsters in the local area to develop their basketball skills and provide technical training as well as teaching their players all about teamwork, self discipline and responsibility.

Whilst we are delighted to be flooring the Falkland Islands, our main client base resides within the UK. Should you wish to ask any questions, or you’re looking for a quote, please don’t hesitate to contact us on 44 2032 907060 or click through to our contact page.
