We helped tennis fans in the north-west warm up for Wimbledon when we supplied 2,000 seats for the Liverpool Hope University Tennis Tournament.

Earlier this year we signed a long-term contract to supply the tournament with four grandstands to create a centre court for the event, which took place at the city’s Calderstones Park 22-23 June.

All of the seats were a colour match to the event’s corporate colour – blue – which also extended to the debris netting on the sides, rear and internal staircases on each grandstand – while one of the grandstands also contained 40 open air corporate boxes.

The event, which has been run each year since 2002, was one of a number of key Wimbledon warm-up grass court events and previous winners include David Ferrer, Mardy Fish and Caroline Wozniacki.

This year, the men’s section was won by Argentinean Martin Alund, while the women’s title went to American Coco Vandewegh.
