Why choose an Artificial Grass Tennis Court?
An artificial grass court surface tends to be softer than a clay surface which is better for both muscles and joints, whilst still replicating the play of a court surface. If you are looking for a court for casual players in your club, this is a fantastic option.
An artificial court will drain faster than traditional clay and grass courts and be ready to use much quicker following rainfall, giving you longer sessions and more use during the winter.
Artificial grass surfaces will also stay clean from mud and will never become slippery following rainfall. This is one of the most reliable surfaces for sports clubs who will be able to run events all year round without the fear of cancellation due to poor weather conditions.
An artificial court can be installed over an existing clay surface, which offers a cheaper option than full resurfacing. It is also much harder wearing than grass courts and will not deteriorate as quickly.
Artificial grass is multi-use! Your new synthetic tennis court is suitable for a wide variety of sports including football and netball. This means you will be able to attract a wider audience and freshen your offerings during the year.
Maintenance for artificial surfaces is cheaper and less labour intensive in the long term than grass or gravel courts.
Artificial Grass Maintenance
Tennis courts need to be constantly maintained due to play and high usage. This is another reason to choose artificial grass because maintenance is easy and requires minimal effort.
Deep cleaning and brushing of the court will keep the pile upright and loosen up the sand to keep it free draining.
Inevitably the sand in the grass will move around over time so it will need topping up roughly every 12 months (dependant on usage). It’s important to regularly check the sand levels and top up accordingly.
Private courts and courts used irregularly can be prone to moss build up, particularity in shaded areas next to buildings or under trees. Again, an annual deep clean will help prevent this and remove any build up.
Most problems with artificial courts result from lack of maintenance! Regular sweeping, drag brushing/matting and an annual deep clean will keep your artificial court in top condition and maintain a high quality playing surface.
