ASTE

 

Australian Synthetic Court Specialists (ASTE) are contracted to maintain BTC’s courts. The BTC Management Team will continue to monitor the state of the courts and work with ASTE to keep them in premium condition.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BTC Working Bee 2011

Peter Henrys, Greg Lammers, Geoff Lambourne (+ busy bee Charlie Lambourne), Ron Simpson and Neville Taylor provided the necessary man power to remove the excess sand on the path adjacent to court 4 and do some essential maintenance on the courts and drains. Peter and Greg have been fantastic in doing many important odd jobs and maintenance tasks throughout the year. Unfortunately, the weather was not on our side and BTC would like to pass on a special thanks to the dedicated members who arrived with sleeves rolled in the morning but could not work because of the rain.

Matthew Salvo

Thanks to Matty Salvo for his great work to keep the courts clean and in top playing condition. Matt has been up against the odds this Winter with heavy rainfalls, gailforce winds and high court usage. Luckily, Matt has been guided by Clubhouse Manager and Maintenance Sensei Ron Simpson who have both put hours upon hours of heavy lifting to preserve the courts between ASTE visits.

Greg Lammers

Special thanks also goes out to loyal member Greg Lammers who put together synthetic drag mats for all courts, these have been very effective in keeping sand on the playing surface.

Greg got inspiration for his genius creation after seeing them in use on the Synthetic Clay at Heatherdale when representing Burwood.

In the cooler weather these mats became heavier and people began reverting to the original baggers. So Greg returned with his trusty Stanley Knife to make some alterations – reducing their size and weight. Another example of the incredible dedication by BTC members.
