About us...

Suffolk Tennis Courts is a family run business based in Suffolk, East Anglia. The company is managed and owned by Kristian Thorpe who has been working in the Tennis Court Construction industry for many years, starting at an early age working with his father who is today still building tennis courts. Having previously worked as a sub-contractor to many of the well-known and larger companies Kristian is experienced enough to look after Suffolk Tennis Courts and its clients from the initial meeting, pricing and building to final touches with the lighting and landscaping around the court.

If you're serious about tennis, use the company who are too!

Tennis is played worldwide and within the UK is becoming ever more popular within schools and clubs but even more so within the grounds of your own home. Whilst we are more than happy to accommodate schools, clubs and councils etc., our main expertise is in the domestic market where being a family business with fewer overheads we can be competitive without jeopardising quality, and this is also where your court can be individual to your tastes and needs.

If you are thinking of having a court or multi-games area (MUGA), please do not hesitate to contact our team for friendly advice.

Our satisfied customers...

Our sincere thanks to you and your father for the excellent work that you have done on our tennis courts. We are delighted with the results, and hope that they will now give many years of continued pleasure to our hirers
The court is fantastic, we couldn't be more delighted with your company's work.
Many thanks for dealing with my tennis court so efficiently and professionally. For an old court with a lot of weed and moss growth it now looks so much better after the treatments and the new paint. I also appreciate your very honest advice about the future of the court and I will certainly contact you for any further work that might be planned.
Thank you Kris and his team for an amazing job. We love what Kris has done to the court and can’t thank him enough.
Thanks for designing and building me the perfect tennis court/multi-games area for my family and garden.
New Court is fantastic, we welcome you back every year for regular maintenance to keep it looking and playing like new.
Great court, quality workmanship.

Do thank Kris for his work on the tennis court as it looks vastly improved.
Sproughton Tennis Club is extremely pleased with the double tennis court clean, colour spray and associated works undertaken by Suffolk Tennis Courts. Wendy ensured the works ran smoothly and was a pleasure to deal with whilst Kevin delivered a first rate finish. Sproughton Tennis Club would strongly recommend Suffolk Tennis Courts.
