When Les Ormes which is Jersey’s premier self-catering holiday and sports centre wanted to refurbish an old tennis building by transforming it into four new netball courts they turned to international flooring specialist Gerflor to supply 2000m2 of their world class Taraflex® sports flooring.

Nathan Maguire, Les Ormes Sports General Manager commented, “the Jersey Netball Team who train and play on the new surface are extremely delighted with its performance.”

Taraflex® Performance provides excellent co-efficient of friction meaning that twists, turns, stops/starts can be carried out without fear of slipping or gripping and subsequent injuries. The shock absorption qualities of Taraflex® Performance also helps players gain even more enjoyment from the sport.

Chris Pursey, Gerflor Area Sales Manager, South West, and Channel Islands commented, “It’s excellent to see one of our sports floors being given a second life after it was used at the Island Games tournament five years ago. They can now play a multitude of different sports in the hall and the variety of colours used makes this project so unique.”
