The process of tennis courts refurbishment is often done in the UK where the sports surface has become worn out, damaged or dirty as a result of overuse and a lack of proper care. We recently completed a project to renovate an existing macadam tennis surface which could not be used as it had become heavily contaminated with moss and algae. This lead to the surfacing having problems with drainage as water couldn’t soak through the porous layers of the court.
Contaminated MUGA Surface Cleaning
In order to get this sports court back to a playable standard and make it safe to use, an extensive tennis courts refurbishment was needed. We began this process by giving the existing macadam surfacing a thorough clean using a pressure washer to blast the moss, algae and debris off the court. A brush was then used to clear away any dirt or natural matter which was still left on the surface to prevent it from getting stuck back in the pores of the macadam and stopping the new paint coating from sticking properly. Brushing the surface of your tennis court is something that should be done on a regular basis to make sure that litter, leaves, mud and other natural matter don’t get stuck to the flooring and prevent water from draining away.
Once the old surface had been properly cleaned and all of the debris removed, the next stage of this Lancashire tennis courts refurbishment was to add a fresh new coating of anti slip acrylic paint. This particular client chose to have the main playing area spray painted in a dark green coloured coating with a light green runoff area around the perimeter. We can apply acrylic paint coatings to sports surfaces in a wide range of different colour options and designs to create a multi use sports facility with a number of purposes. The anti slip properties in the acrylic sports paint are achieved by adding a mixture of sand and aluminium oxide which provide more grip and traction to enhance the safety of the flooring.
Tennis Courts Refurbishment Line Markings
After the main paint application had been done, the next part of the tennis courts refurbishment was to apply new clear line markings for use in training and matches. It’s important to have any sports line markings applied by a professional contractor to ensure that the dimensions are accurate and the lines are good quality and will last a long time. If you have a tennis surface which is going to be used as a multi purpose facility, we can apply numerous sets of line markings for other sports like basketball and netball in contrasting colours.
The completed tennis courts refurbishment revealed a sports surface with a brand new look which now has its original performance qualities back along with greater anti slip properties. A fresh acrylic paint coating gives the surface a new lease of life and the client was very pleased with their much improved tennis court surface.
