The best lockers for a tennis club, by lockertek

 

One of the most common places to find lockers is at sport facilities and places where sports equipment is stored. The area I’m focusing on in this article is tennis, which is one of the biggest sports in the world. When considering lockers to be used in a tennis club there are a few things that should be thought about.

 

A tennis player typically carries 2 – 3 tennis rackets and the average length of a tennis racket can be anywhere from 635 to 736mm in length and can be up to 317mm wide. This needs to be considered when choosing a locker as the compartments need to be the right size to accommodate this.

 

 

Tennis players carry their rackets, uniform, and extra equipment in a purpose made bag. These bags these are normally up to 740mm in length to accommodate the racket so we would suggest going with a two-compartment locker which has the height per compartment to accommodate this size.

 

 

Depending on whether it is casual play or professional competition, players will bring their clothes to the tennis club and get changed into their uniform before a game. Two doors lockers also can provide either a hanging rail or two coat hooks per compartment for hanging uniform or a coat.

 

 

When it comes to lock choice, tennis clubs work with memberships or can be facilitated by leisure centres, in either case, a cam lock and two keys allows a member to be given a key to keep for that locker but also for the club owner to keep a key in the instance of a lost key or a termination of membership. In the case of tennis courts only being used for casual players at a leisure centre, a coin return lock is more appropriate choice of lock.

 

 

For the design of the lockers, if the lockers are to be situated in a changing room then a steel locker will fit the bill. In the case of a leisure centre that has swimming facilities as well as tennis courts, a moisture resistant aluminium locker such as the zenbox will be a better fit, as the lockers will come in to contact with moisture from pool users. If the lockers are to be situated in public view, then something with a smarter wood effect finish such as the timber box locker or the zenbox with its colourful laminated door fronts will be more suited.

 

 

A stand with an incorporated bench would also be a great addition to your lockers to allow players to sit while they change.

 

So, to culminate everything we have discussed in this article, our verdict on the best locker for a tennis club would be:

 

  • A steel or aluminium frame locker with two compartments to accommodate a racket bag.
  • At least 740mm compartment height to accommodate a racket bag.
  • To have a cam lock with keys for members or a coin return lock if the tennis court is in a leisure centre.
  • To either have steel doors, laminate or wood effect doors, depending on locker location.
  • To have a locker stand with incorporated bench to allow sitting during changing.
