indoor-sports playing conditions are achievable with Vector Foiltec's
Texlon systems. The cladding system over the Tennis Center is an elegant
and economical solution consisting of opaque white Texlon ETFE foils
within an exterior tensile structural system.
The Texlon system allows for a column free space with diffuse ambient light for optimum play condition. The facility has two bays of courts, with one line of structural masts between the bays that supports both bays' undulating ridge. A uniaxial cable net is tensioned between the ridges and the eaves, supporting the foil panels spanning across the entire bays.
The opaque white foil diffuses the natural daylight, softening and evenly distributing light, providing a natural ambient illumination ideal for all sporting events.
