Netball and tennis are on the curriculum at a Rubb UK sports hub in Cornwall.

Gateshead based Rubb Buildings Ltd beat off competition to become the main subcontractor responsible for the design, manufacture and installation of the facility at Budehaven Community School, a specialist sports college. Rubb came onboard after main contractor Leadbitter won the contract following a competitive tender process.

The project started out as a one court tennis hall which grew into a two court hall after more funding was secured. Then the design was changed to also accommodate two netball courts. This involved increasing the height of the building while maintaining the overall footprint.

The custom designed sports hall measures 39.5m x 35m with 7.2m high sidewalls of which three metres are steel clad.

The new sports facility is an iconic building for both the school and wider communities. It has enabled us to enhance the sporting provision for our 1300 students and feeder primary schools; support the development of two growing sports of netball and tennis in the town, creating centres of excellence and generating new sporting opportunities for all. The netball hub is now at the heart of our school and community leisure provision and will provide a lasting legacy.
