We were very happy with the work Neil did on the Basketball court for our school. He followed our brief and delivered the court on time and to an exact standard. We would have no hesitations on recommending his work to future clients.

Champion Sports grounds recently completed the installation of artificial turf at Catherine McAuley, Westmead.

The outcome for the school is excellent.  An area which was tired and worn has been transformed to a very attractive all-weather area which is very popular with the students.

Neil…managed the project with result that there was minimal inconvenience to the school and any difficulties were overcome without any hassle

Inaburra School engaged Tiger Turf to install synthetic turf in our Junior School playground over the school holidays in January 2012. Champions Sports Grounds were responsible for construction and installation of the surface. During this time Sydney recorder record rainfall and the project was very challenging and had to be extended into school term time. He met all our requirements in terms of entry and egress from the school, safe access for our staff and students and completion of the work as soon as the weather permitted. We are very happy with the finished product.

In the years I have worked at Jasper Road Public School I have had to deal with many contractors coming to the school.  I can without question, say Neil Thomas and his dedicated crew from Champion Sports Grounds have been the most professional, reliable and friendly to deal with.  I have no hesitation in recommending them and already have to a number of schools and preschools in the area.

Newington Public School has used the services of Champion Sports Grounds for the construction and installation of two major playground projects in the past two years. Our synthetic grass multi-sport court area is now a major part of our play time and sport-physical education programs. A second playground area was refurbished to allow the installation of synthetic grass and a paved pathway into what was a worn and potentially dangerous dirt slope area. This area is now a most popular location within our playground with students eating and playing safely, where it was not possible previously. Neil Thomas and his team from Champion Sports Ground were fantastic to work with, highly professional, reliable and most cooperative in meeting the needs of the school.

Werrington County Public School students are thrilled with their new all-purpose court. We have raised funds for this facility for a long time and we are more than happy with the final results. The children were disappointed to lose their ‘truckpit area’ but that was quickly overcome when they saw the court taking shape and are now very excited to try out their new play area.

I would like to thank Neil and his team who dealt with the construction. They were very safety conscious, reliable and cooperated with all our requests. Unfortunately, we did encounter bad weather ( ½ day before completion ) which delayed work. I was kept fully informed by the office as to what was happening and when work would recommence.

On behalf of the school community

Thank you
