    Full size 6v6 court markings in both main hall and smaller gym.  Floor anchor points suitable for the pair of grey posts with pin supports for the net.  They also have a pair of blue posts with sliders but the positioning of the anchor points means that the main upright would intrude on to the court.  The anchor points in the main hall are currently (2023) full of resin (?) so would need to be cleared out before using.
