When a ‘sports enthusiastic’ family in Gloucester wanted to create a basketball court in their garden, they turned to international flooring specialist Gerflor to supply their world class Sport Court® PowerGame™ Plus tiles in eye catching Black and Red colours. It would be an inspired move that would produce hours of fun and play for the whole family.
This rare, privately owned ‘back yard project’ would need to have the highest standards of fitting to fully deliver a top-flight finish. The task would be the responsibility of Birmingham-based Bradleys Surfacing Systems. A family owned and operated company, Bradleys Surfacing Systems was formed in 2012 by Tom and Ray Bradley to offer a range of products and services to the UK marketplace. Bradleys Surfacing Systems are suppliers and installers of a range of synthetic sports, play and landscaping surfaces for both commercial and educational settings.
Tom Bradley, Managing Director Bradleys Surfacing Systems said,” The initial request came directly from the client who wanted a top end basketball facility in their garden. It’s the first time we’ve completed an install in a domestic setting dedicated to basketball use only. We specified Gerflor’s PowerGame™ Plus outdoor sports surface thanks to its unique construction, it was also fit for purpose for the application and would take minimal time to install.”

On fitting and installation Tom Bradley further commented, “We used two of our highly trained fitters to lay the Gerflor Sport Court floor which was easily completed in a single day.” Tom Bradley added, “The Sport Court PowerGame™ tiles were exceptionally easy and fast to lay.”
Tom Bradley ended by saying,” This was a superb install for this ‘sports energetic’ family in Gloucester. The preparation work involved constructing a fully engineered base which incorporated a layer of porous macadam to create a well-draining all weather surface, which works perfectly with the Gerflor Sports Court system.”
Commenting on this unique project Chris Newey, Gerflor Area Sales Specification Manager, West Midlands said, “PowerGame™ Plus provided this installation with an exceptional playing experience, together with also ensuring a high level of player safety and comfort,”
