Synthetic tennis courts or artificial grass tennis courts are becoming an increasing popular solution for your tennis club or even your own garden! As technologies have developed it’s possible to install an extremely high-quality solution using synthetic grass, which remains almost identical to playing tennis on the real thing, whilst also offering many other benefits.
We are experts at working with tennis clubs across the UK to help you design and install your dream court – all for a lower cost and with significantly reduced maintenance time.
There are many ongoing benefits your tennis club will experience if you choose professional artificial grass for your next tennis court surfacing. These include:
Low Maintenance: Artificial grass tennis courts require much less maintenance than natural grass courts. They don’t need to be watered, mowed, or fertilised, and they don’t develop bare patches or divots like natural grass. This makes them a great option for those who want a tennis court that requires minimal upkeep.
Consistent Playing Surface: Artificial grass tennis courts provide a consistent playing surface that is not affected by changes in weather or temperature. The surface is also free of bumps, divots, or uneven areas, which can affect the bounce and speed of the ball. This consistency can make for a more enjoyable and fair game.
Durability: Artificial grass tennis courts are highly durable and can withstand heavy use and extreme weather conditions. They are resistant to fading, cracking, and warping, and can last up to 15 years or more with proper maintenance. This makes them a good long-term investment for those who want a high-quality tennis court that will last for years.
Bespoke: Artificial grass tennis courts can be tailor made to your needs. Synthetic grass can be manufactured to fit the size of your desired court for both single and doubles courts and your chosen runoff size. Synthetic tennis grass can be manufactured in various colours to suit your preference, including different colours for the court and surrounding runoff areas.
If you have any further questions about the benefits of choosing a synthetic grass tennis court over a tarmac or real grass option, then our team of experts are always available to talk through your project. We also offer a range of other sports, including Padel Tennis and MUGA’s (multi use games areas) that can also be used for tennis.
Our tennis artificial grass is made from the highest quality materials, ensuring that it can withstand the wear and tear of constant use. It is also low maintenance, requiring only occasional brushing and cleaning to keep it looking like new. We also take care of all your line painting and surface gluing, using sports grade materials - meaning your new tennis court is fully ready to go after installation!
Artificial grass tennis courts are typically made from a combination of synthetic fibres and a sand infill. The fibers are designed to mimic the look and feel of a compact natural court while the sand provides stability and durability.
To make sure you get a professional synthetic tennis court, you need to make sure you work with an artificial grass company who takes a professional approach to your tennis court design and installation. Whether you are looking for a standard or a premium option, indoor or outdoor, we have something to suit your needs and budget.
If you already have an existing court, weather this is clay or tarmac, these can be refurbished and resurfaced into a brand new synthetic court for a fraction of the price. Old tennis courts can be cleared and resurfaced with artificial tennis grass.
Building a synthetic tennis court typically involves several steps to make sure you have the perfect tennis court upon completion. The main steps in building your new synthetic tennis court are:
The first step is to clear and level the area where the tennis court will be constructed. This may involve removing any existing structures or obstacles and grading the surface to ensure proper drainage. Concrete pin kerbs should be installed around the perimeter to set out the area and retain the base works.
The next step is to install the base layer, which provides the foundation for the court. The base layer typically consists of a layer of MOT type 1 which should be compacted and levelled to ensure a smooth and stable surface. This is then followed by a layer of porous asphalt/tarmac, machine rolled flat with no imperfections
Once the base layer is in place, the synthetic tennis surface can be installed. The artificial tennis grass is cut in with line markings precisely glued in to create the court lines. Although other options are available, artificial grass provides the best surface to replicate the nature of a real grass court.
Synthetic tennis grass will require a silica sand infill to increase both the performance and longevity of the playing surface.
After the surface is installed, the court is finished with a variety of touches, including boundary lines, net posts, and fencing. Sport floodlighting can also be added, retractable lighting can be installed to avoid planning permission requirements. We can help provide these or use any existing equipment where appropriate.
There are a few different options available to help make sure that tennis players can experience a surface which looks and behaves like real grass. The main consideration is the floor materials or the surface that you choose to have installed. We can cover different lengths and styles of artificial grass to give you the look and feel to match your tennis club.
