Artificial Surfaces for Tennis
With the standard of artificial surfaces for tennis now at an all time high, we’ve been involved with many new-build and refurbishment of tennis projects.
One of the benefits of a porous sand filled or sand dress artificial surface is that it is permeable and allows the drainage of surface water ensuring that your tennis court is Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUD’s) compliant. With an artificial surface tennis court you can keep the appearance and playing characteristics of a natural Wimbledon style tennis surface without such a high level of maintenance.
Interestingly, the pile height of an artificial tennis court surface is shorter in length than an artificial surface used for football, this is dictated by The LTA. For tennis usage, artificial surfaces will be between 10-19mm in length depending on how fast you want the play to be on the court itself.
With such a high standard of artificial surfaces available for tennis, you will find yourself seeing more and more artificial courts across the country. If you’re interested in discussing your tennis court requirements, please feel free to contact one of our expert team and we’ll be happy to help.
