Hendrik Dubbeldam of Greenfields working on the Cruyff Court at Frederick “Sonny” Cranston Sports Park.
ST. EUSTATIUS–The Cruyff Court at Frederick “Sonny” Cranston Sports Park has been undergoing resurfacing for the past two weeks by Johan Cruyff Foundation.
Hendrik Dubbeldam of Greenfields supervised the project in partnership with Johan Cruyff Foundation.
Greenfields is a company that produces and installs artificial turf. Jaime Lopes of Statia Construction carried out the work on the court.
Dubbeldam said during the first week of work the old carpet was removed and the base was levelled. The second week saw the new carpet being brought in and placed on top of the court.
The work on the field was completed on Wednesday, April 10, just in time for the King’s Games for primary school children in the Netherlands and the Dutch Caribbean.
Johan Cruyff Foundation, which is based in the Netherlands, supports and establishes sports fields for children around the world to play on, especially for children in need.
Acting Government Commissioner Mervyn Stegers said no tendering process was undertaken for this project, because it was a part of a package deal for more courts. Cruyff Courts have been built in most Dutch Caribbean
