The stabilized soccer subject situated at Guy Boniface Sports Park, in Élancourt, will quickly be gone. By the end of the year, it’s going to make approach for a new tennis complex. “It is a training ground which was used less and less by big game sports clubs (football and rugby, Editor’s note) because the material is quite degraded and not at all up to standards”, explains Frédéric Pélegrin (SE ), deputy mayor in cost of growth and city planning.
The land of the former courts freed as much as make approach for the future police station
He provides that this future complex will meet “three objectives: free the site [des actuels courts] for the start of the agglomeration police station project, renew the tennis practice infrastructures, because they are aging, [et] prepare the more global renewal of the IV Arbres site, which will experience urban change over the coming years and decades. “
The present tennis courts – six outside and three indoor – situated to the north of the sports park, at the Trois Oies roundabout, alongside Boulevard Bernard Grégory, will stay accessible throughout the building of the new ones, even when the present outside courts “them, will be limited until the fall”, specifies the elected, as a result of the web site of the future police station have to be put in in September. “The police station is just going to set up right in the place of outdoor areas,” he explains. There will even be an entire set up of parking tons for this police station. […]. There is a vital earthwork, so I feel the fall [prochain] goes to be dedicated to that. “
But from the end of 2021 therefore, the delivery of the future tennis complex, on the east side of the sports park, on the edge of the RD58, must take place. It will include four indoor courts in a 3,100 m² hall, four outdoor over 2,800 m², an aisle serving the outdoor courts, a changing room and sanitary area, landscaped areas, two offices for associative activities, or even a part clubhouse, articulated between the outside and the inside, as well as a bicycle shelter, while the parking lot of the Agora will be used by users coming by car.
The grounds will be in greenset. “It is a kind of resin appropriate for tennis, in order to have a high quality sports flooring and to safeguard a ten-year assure,” explains Frédéric Pélegrin. The idea was to find a versatile playing surface, […] which responds to both experienced and beginner players. […] We are trying to do something usable by everyone, because not only is there a club, an association that uses the current equipment, but, in the future equipment, we possibly envision other users such as school children, for example. “
The complex as an entire can have one much less land than the present construction, however can have an extra cowl courtroom. An asset highlighted by Frédéric Pélegrin, who additionally factors out that the constructing housing the current courts is “an old hangar which is at least 30 years old, which has a lot of waterproofing problems”, and the place “it happens that rain […] by certain leaks ”and that the ground is slippery and therefore impassable.
An “eco-accountable” complex
In a press release, the Élancourtoise municipality also assures us that the new complex will be “eco-responsible” and that it has made “the choice of a modular, sustainable and aesthetic infrastructure”. “It was determined to not warmth the future tennis corridor, however, on the different hand, we’re going to insulate it very nicely,” says Frédéric Pélegrin. Even in summer, we will try to ensure that the temperature does not rise too high, and, in winter, that it does not fall too low, to avoid these phenomena of humidity, and will be added not a heating, but controlled ventilation (programmed according to humidity levels, to avoid excess humidity and unnecessary heating expenses, Editor’s note). “
The finances for this new setting quantities to three.5 million euros excluding tax (3.866 million euros together with tax), of which 1.8 million euros excluding tax payable by the municipality. Work was attributable to begin this month, for ten months. This mission will even be a chance, extra broadly, for the City “to mirror on the reallocation of sports fields, for big video games usually, since, […] for a metropolis of 26,000 inhabitants, we’re nearly over-outfitted, ”notes Frédéric Pélegrin.
