Hinged Rugby Posts


Hinged rugby posts are far safer to erect and take down and if you use a Hinged Post Assembly Roller it is even easier.

We recommend using rugby post protectors with all rugby posts but we strongly recommend their use with hinged posts as the hinge mechanism projects beyond the profile of the post.


Cleaning Your Tennis Court With Qualgex



We use Qualgex to treat moss on courts and recommend it with the following advice:

If the moss is thick it will probably need more than one application.

A typical 110’ x 54’ “domestic” court is 552m2, a “club size” 114’ x 56’ is 593m2 or a full size 120’ x 60’ is 670m2.

5L of Qualgex will treat 500m2, so is usually just about enough to treat a domestic court for algae and some moss.

It will work on damp (but best not to be saturated, ie immediately after rain) moss. The moss needs to be actively growing, so we don’t apply it unless the temperature for the day is going to stay above 6°C.

Make sure your equipment is thoroughly rinsed out from any weed killer as it reacts with any glyphosate based weed killer and forms a “goo” that blocks up the sprayer.

Getting Rid of Moss

As experts in Tennis Court Construction and Maintenance we recommend the use of Qualgex for cleaning your Tennis Courts. It can be used on any external hard surface to remove moss and algae problems.

How Qualgex Works

How Qualgex Works

Qualgex is soluble in water and non-corrosive and is an ideal maintenance product. It has a unique feature in that it is not deactivated by organic matter so will still work on dirty surfaces such as paths that have not been kept clean.

The action of Qualgex is very rapid, killing algae and other targets on contact, with visual effects usually being seen within 24-48 hours after application. The product also has a cleaning action that will brighten the appearance of stonework and similar hard surfaces.

Which Balls do I use in my Tennis Ball Machine

Non pressurised balls are recommended for use with ball machines as pressurised balls are more likely to create fluff that can clog the machine.

Grimshaws Going to Buckingham Palace

Peter GrimshawWell I never, Peter and Diana Grimshaw (Grimshaw Group Company Directors) have just been invited to a Garden Party at Buckingham Palace.   Peter has been recommended for making a major contribution to life in the local community.

Three Royal Garden Parties are held at Buckingham Palace every year and about 8000 people attend each party.  Apparently at a typical garden party, around 27,000 cups of tea, 20,000 sandwiches and 20,000 slices of cake are consumed.

Ps. Just wondering if they might need a new tennis court!!
