Still not convinced? Then listen to our satisfied customers...
I feel that the resultant court is superbly constructed and know that it is superb to play on.
I was very impressed with the speed with which you dealt with the minor hiccups throughout the project.
I just played tennis on the courts at Yarra Glen Tennis Club, and want to thank you for doing such a wonderful job.
Everyone at AS Lodge were always helpful and willing to assist with any concerns we may have had.
Your integrity and control of yesterday's situation was most reassuring that I had made the correct decision in choosing your company.
A S Lodge carried out a full resurfacing of our 28 year old tennis court with a new concrete base and synthetic grass. From the initial discussions with Richard and innovative approach to the final sign off with Sandy the complete experience was one of minimal inconvenience and complete satisfaction.
The concrete team and then the grass laying team were efficient and extremely fast in their execution of their tasks.
The finished result is what looks like a brand new court.
We are extremely satisfied in our choice of A S Lodge, and would recommend them to anyone in the future.
Once again thanks for a great project.
