En tout cas, a family business, was established by the late Ron Evans in 1964 when he obtained the rights to use the name “ En tout cas” from the original UK company. En tout cas, French for “in any case” or “in any weather” originated in England on 1909 and describes well the characteristics of the original En tout cas tennis court.
In Australia, the En tout cas construction division has built thousands of tennis courts for leading tennis institutions, well known public identities and landmark installations such as the old and new Parliament Houses, Canberra, the Victorian Tennis Association courts at Bullen and countless private courts in some of Australia's finest homes.
In 2006 Bernard Evans became sole director and 100% shareholder. With a heritage of thousands of tennis courts behind him the business took a monumental leap into the future.
Drought, quality of synthetic grass and the general acceptance of 3rd generation friendly fibres found the company installing replacement sports fields for the education sector, especially primary schools.
The application of synthetic grass in these schools is extensive, many examples may be found on this website.
With a current full time staff level of approximately 30, and a raft of specialist construction plant and equipment, Grassports is well positioned to carry out major projects such as F.I.F.A approved soccer fields, F.I.H approved hockey fields and AFL approved football fields.
Quite a change from the old “en tout cas”
A new era began in July 2009 with a new trading name, a name that truly reflects the type of works we carry out – Grassports Australia.
