About Us

Company Profile

Founded in 1993 by Mike Farthing and Matthew Flint, Academy Sports Limited has built up a reputation for professional excellence in the provision of high quality sports surfaces of all kinds. Despite the resulting expansion of the business to a present annual turnover of between £1.0 and £1.5 million, Mike and Matthew continue personally to oversee each and every construction and refurbishment project, from the initial appraisal and quotation until handover of the completed facility.

This personal service and attention to quality means that a significant proportion of the company’s business results from personal recommendation by former clients, many of whom have supplied letters of reference and/or are happy for prospective customers to view the court construction work previously done for them. These clients range from private purchasers of domestic tennis courts to schools and local authorities, for whom Academy Sports Limited has designed and installed large multi-use surfaces including multi-use games areas and ancillary facilities. The company operates throughout South East England from its base near Woking in Surrey.
