David and Victoria Beckham have built a tennis court at their Cotswold home estimated to have cost around £30,000.
The court was built mainly for their son Romeo who is a good tennis player and is being mentored by top tennis coaches. He could follow in his father’s footsteps by becoming a professional sportsman.
The court was designed by Marcus Barnett, a landscape designer who has won three gold medals at the Chelsea Flower Show.
It is thought that the chosen site for the court on the Beckham estate was originally going to be a five-a-side football pitch with an all-weather artificial turf, but Romeo's love for tennis changed these plans.
The tennis court will enable him to pursue his passion and develop his tennis skills. It is thought that he will spend his summer holidays playing tennis, with his parents hiring top tennis coaches to enhance his skills. In London, Romeo plays at the elite Queens tennis club and has been spotted training with some of the world’s top ranked players Andy Murray, Grigor Dimitrov and Caroline Wozniacki.
Not many homes have the space or budget for an artificial grass tennis court, but laying artificial grass in Chester gardens can be ideal for people who want the look of real grass but do not have the time to cut and maintain real grass. The average lawn costs a lot less to cover in artificial grass than the £30,000 the Beckhams paid for their tennis court.
