Tennis Court Construction Specification

The EPDM polymeric rubber court construction was carried out onto an engineered macadam sub base which gives the surface a stable foundation. The polymeric surfacing was then created by mixing rubber crumb particles with a binder, this mixture was then laid onto the macadam base.

The final polymeric surface was completed in a two tone colour coating of red and green, this coating gives the slip resistance to meet the required playing characteristics. The full construction included the polymeric surfacing itself as well as sports floodlights which was to the standard of 200 lux, sports rebound fence which included a double gate, single gate and combination goal ends.

We’re a professional tennis facility construction and upkeep business, who have a wide array of understanding in regard to different sports surfaces for the tennis courts we install..

There’s a range of sports surfaces, be sure you research about the different variations which are available as well as that are best for you. Seeing that non-slip colour coating increases the traction of the facility, the safety qualities are improved.

Other Tennis Court Services We Offer

We offer a variety of services which include sports surfacing cleaning. Cleaning the court is really important in order that porous qualities will be kept. Moss together with algae might contaminate your facility and can contribute to floods and also water-logging – to stop such damages, a chemical treatment can be applied.

Together with cleaning, we provide a number of additional maintenance services. Repainting can be needed, because anti slip paint coatings in addition to line markings can fade, crack or even end up ruined with time resulting from repeated use. Repainting, as well as line marking helps bring back the initial playing features of sports facilities and can as well make the surface looks completely new.

Small fixes could be carried out simply by qualified professionals; this is the reason it is essential to look at your area for problems regularly. Full renovations can be achieved if the surface is beyond repair. Resurfacing is done when the original surface cannot be mended.

Along with multi use games area and tennis court construction, we also provide a number of maintenance services to help keep your new tennis court in top condition once the installation is complete.

These services include pressure washing, chemical treatments to prevent contamination and reapplication of anti slip coatings and line markings. Having this sort of regular maintenance carried out for your MUGA facility will help to maintain its performance characteristics and ensure that it’s safe for use by everyone.

Tennis Court Applications

Tennis court installers can apply a range of different paint coatings to your tennis court, depending on your specification and what you need. These paint coatings can all be applied to our tennis courts in a range of colours (eg blue, red, green). Some of the different types include:

  • Acrylic non-slip coating – This ensures the safety characteristics of the tennis courts we install are maintained to reduce the risk of injury. This is especially important if the facility is being used by kids at a school or sports club.
  • Polyurethane spray coat – Enhances the surface with bright colours and increases durability and longevity of our tennis courts. It also adds an anti-slip quality for safety.
  • Line marking – It is important to make sure that our tennis courts have good quality, skid-resistant line-markings. This will ensure the best performance characteristics and most accurate game playing decisions.

Tennis Court Construction Cost

The average cost of a tennis court construction in the UK is £60,000, however this figure is often influenced by many factors, including surface type, colours and size of the installation.

The cost to build a tennis court can vary depending on a number of different factors. One of the biggest factors which can affect the cost is the size of the facility you wish to install. Obviously it will cost more to install double courts than single courts. Another factor which can alter the price is the surfacing which you choose to have.

You will find some surfacing for tennis courts will be much cheaper than others due to preparation works, price of materials, etc. For example polymeric surfaces need to be installed on macadam, whereas hard court macadam surfaces do not need another layer.
