Steeped in heritage, Royal Wimbledon Golf Club dates back to 1865 and provides a relaxing retreat near Charing Cross, in the heart of London.
The tranquil course boasts fairways lined with mature chestnut, oak and silver birch trees. After enjoying a round of golf, members and guests can savour a varied menu in the bar area or the dining room, with the option of eating al fresco on the veranda at certain times.
A club with such a long and distinguished history requires sympathetic refurbishment to provide high-quality, modern facilities while retaining the ambience of the venue.
Crown Sports Lockers was asked to provide new changing facilities for male members and visitors, including lockers for members’ clothes and personal possessions, clothes hanging units, towel storage and dirty drops, wet and dry grooming stations and seating.
We designed and installed lockers with solid oak frame doors and traditional moulding to the edges; carpet top seating with storage below; and Corian vanity units. This innovative and fully functional solution retained the character of the surroundings.
The client was so happy with our work, a few years later we were asked to update the ladies changing area.
