Squash Courts
At Medowen, we have been installing squash court sprung floors and squash court glass back walls since the early 1980s. Medowen was instrumental in the organisation of The World Open Squash tournament held in South Africa in 1991. For this tournament, we built the very first all-glass squash court to be seen in South Africa. This original court can still be seen at Wanderers Squash Club in Gauteng.

Our squash court floors are all sprung floors. We use predominantly Hevea (Malaysian Rubber wood) or Beech and we ensure our timbers are all pre-machined at the factory to the exact squash court specification.

Our glass back walls are all manufactured locally to overseas specifications. We provide both 2-panel and 4-panel glass back wall systems.
