Plexipave have done an outstanding job preparing the ABS Tennis Arena for New Zealand’s summer of tennis.
The ASB Classic and Heineken Open are New Zealand’s premier sporting events going out to more than 700 million homes world wide and hosting some of the biggest names in sport including Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Maria Sharapova and our own Marina Erakovic.
It is crucially important that we maintain our world class facilities for the players leading into the Australian open. Julian and his team prepare the courts on time, on budget and to Grand Slam quality each year ensuring happy players and an even spectacle.
The Plexicushion surface suits the New Zealand climate perfectly. With lower impact on your body, the surface also stands up against the harsh New Zealand sun and encourage fast play.
Tennis Auckland is delighted to have Plexipave as one of our events most important partners.

ASB Classic and Heineken Open
Hopefully you’ve been busy over the past several months.
I’m happy to report that Julian and his New Zealand Plexipave team have been excellent to work with. They attended to our court issues earlier this year and, despite some rain, the surface is looking good – lines included. We have recently noted subsidence in some of the cracks that were repaired, but Julian has been most attentive and we expect that he will deal with those promptly.
Thank you for your assistance in resolving our issues and for providing Julian with materials for this job.
Based on this experience I think your New Zealand representation is now very good indeed.

To Whom it May Concern
Last year I contacted Plexipave NZ Ltd to enquire about resurfacing tennis and netball courts at Lincoln. Julian Faulis and his team have been excellent to deal with and throughout the resurfacing process. They answered questions we had and provided information to help us make an informed decision on court surfaces which was quite an issue for us to meet both tennis and netball standards. Also we were very pleased that they could start the project on such short notice, they kept time available for us during a busy summer period when we didn’t know if the project had funding to complete until a couple of weeks before the scheduled start.
All their staff respected our facilities keeping the clubrooms tidy, rubbish removed and keeping the worksite safe. They displayed required notices and fenced off areas so members of the public couldn’t access them when work was in progress which was an important requirement with Selwyn District Council involvements in the project.
They employed Austin Asphalt to complete repairs needed on the asphalt courts. Some asphalt was quite old and parts identified during the initial consultation were dug out and replaced, they matched the new asphalt with the old asphalt well along with the replacement of the old tennis posts with new posts which involved digging out the old then concreting new in. We were very pleased with the way they worked together to complete the project in good time.
The crack repairs (which there were a lot of) completed by Plexipave have been done very well and the courts now look fantastic! The courts also are fantastic to play on, we have had so much good feedback from players at all levels.
The deadlines to have courts available again for competition tennis were met, they had plenty of staff working when needed, communication was excellent and they were very particular in ensuring the job was done well (I heard some lines were re-painted because they weren’t quite right!).
If you require any more information please do not hesitate to contact me.

To whom it may concern.
On behalf of Burwood Park Tennis Club, I wish to thank and commend Plexipave New Zealand for the work recently completed on our four new hard courts.
This has been a major project for us and the professional way Plexipave carried out their part of the job was very much appreciated.
The surfacing process was well discussed and I thank Plexipave for the advice offered on colour choices, playing lines and finishing. All our questions were well answered and agreements made prior to Plexipave commencing their work were completed within the time frame of the project.
Plexipave started work on the day they said they would. The weather was kind and the finishing work was completed on time and to schedule.
While on the job, the Plexipave staff, to a man or woman, was efficient, professional and approachable, working with us to allow play to continue on adjacent courts.
We are delighted at the finished product and after several weeks of playing, there has been no need for any touch ups or re-finishing work. The new court surface has been extremely well received with not a single negative comment.
On behalf of Burwood Park Tennnis Club, I would like to highly recommend Plexipave if you are considering using their services and products.
Plexipave are certainly our playing surface company of choice and I invite you to call into our club to inspect their work. I am sure you will be impressed.
