It’s an interesting question, isn’t it? For most of us the answer is likely to involve a nice trip or a few days away, and the success of this is how we would gauge our answer. For us at Courtship, there have been no trips to the beach, and no weekends away, and this is why we feel we have had the best summer so far.

The fact of the matter is that the summer is the busiest time of year for our commercial business, and we have been busy sanding and preparing sports halls and school halls across the country ready for the schools to reopen again.

We are masters at painting court lines, whether they are tennis, basketball, football or squash courts.  In fact, this could very well be our specialist subject on mastermind. All joking aside we estimate that 20% of our work happens when the general public are sitting on a beach somewhere and we are busy in the heat, sanding, preparing and varnishing hall floors.  This is where our reputation has been built and is the result of over 30 years of hard work and experience that started with my father and uncle way back in the 1980’s.

Courtship Flooring has been firmly established within the specialist flooring area of the leisure industry for over 30 years. During this time, the company has built up a nationwide client register and a first-class reputation within the industry. There is no element of the business practice that is reliant on any form of sub-contraction as all aspects are carried out by Courtship Flooring specialist teams, this allows us to have complete control over the whole project and means we are able to guarantee all our work.

This reputation has led to some pretty big contracts for us, one of which did involve a beach (of sorts) this summer, but it wasn’t your typical West Country patch of sand, but a rather scenic stretch of coast on the Falkland Islands.  These sports halls took a whole two weeks to completely strip, prepare and bring back to their former glory.

Of course, not all sports halls and courts are empty during the summer and we had to wait for Wimbledon to be over before we gave some much needed TLC to their indoor courts.

Overall we have had a fantastic summer, and we want to give special thanks to our suppliers for all of their help and support: Bona, Boen UK, Floor stock UK, KRH and Promain.
