Dear Marion (Doe Office Manager)

Diana, my wife and I are delighted with the result of all the works that your team carried out. I believe that Patrick and David were due to move onto dealing with a job on the top of a building in the City which would have been a bit of a contrast with the work for us. I hope all went well.

When given a chance I am recommending your company to friends and acquaintances and will let you know if, and when, we need any more help.

Yours sincerely.

We have had a long, happy and successful association with Doe for about 30 years.

The last court they put down for us in 1997 was an Olympus which was the first of its type in this country. We have been enormously pleased with this surface. Our family and friends find it an excellent playing surface with a perfect speed and bounce. It plays really well in all weathers. It is extremely body-friendly – kind on ageing hips and knees!

The service and maintenance we have had and continue to have from Sarah and her team is highly efficient and friendly.

Many of our friends have installed Doe Olympus courts having experienced playing on our court. We cannot recommend it more highly.

Dear All at Doe!

Thanks for all your work. Lee and Gaz are a credit to you, as are Howard and Bob. Please remember to visit in April 2010 with your paint man.

Good luck and best wishes,

Chris & Liz Lloyd

The entire process or ordering and construction of the court was both painless and professional throughout. Guests at the castle now enjoy a fantastic tennis court, which has already been put to good use this summer. The site was a challenging mess before your arrival and its location on a remote island as northerly, I suspect, as a court has been installed. Through a combination of good organisation and planning by Ian and Colin and tireless hard work by Nigel, an old, cracked and barely recognisable concrete court that had not been used for decades was transformed into a superb artificial grass arena beyond our hopes. Thank you for delivering so efficiently what your website and reputation promised. I will confidently recommend Doe Sport to any guest who enquires.

Dear Alison

I am pleased to provide a reference for Doe Sport (North) Ltd following the refurbishment of the tennis courts at The Mary Erskine School and the installation of a new long-jump run up at our Inverleith sports ground.

Both projects were managed well by Doe, with little disruption to the school and to a very good quality of finish. They started and finished when they said they would and there was little snagging. I have no doubts about using Doe again for similar works and, in fact, look forward to working with them on a new all-weather high jump run up fan this summer also at Inverleith.

If I can be of further help please do not hesitate to contact me.
