Benefits of Painting a Tennis Court

Painting a tennis court offers several benefits:

  • Improved Surface Quality: Paint provides a smoother and more consistent playing surface, enhancing ball bounce and playability.
  • Enhanced Durability: A painted tennis surface is more resistant to wear and tear, extending the court's lifespan.
  • Increased Safety: Properly painted courts offer better traction, reducing the risk of slips and falls.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Fresh tennis court paint improves the court's appearance, making it more inviting for players.
  • Line Visibility: Painting ensures clear and visible lines, essential for fair play and accurate scoring.
  • Surface Protection: Tennis court paint acts as a barrier against moisture and UV damage, protecting the underlying material.
  • Customisation: Different colours and types of paint allow for customisation in terms of appearance and playing characteristics.

Coloured Sports Line Markings

Professional line markings can be applied to the tennis surface in coloured paint to provide precise performance dimensions.

The paint that we use for both the line markings and the base covering is fitted with an anti-slip aggregate that dramatically enhances both the playing and performance features for harsher weather conditions. 

If you're getting the sports court painted with slip resilient coating, make sure to work with a local professional sports service provider to ensure you get a top quality job for your surrounding areas.

We recommend keeping on top of proactive maintenance to ensure your that the coloured paint coating doesn't lose its non slip qualities. Without regular maintenance, the tennis court paint could also lose its anti-slip resilient features, leading to it to become unsafe to use.

What are the Tennis Court Surface Types?

There are several types of tennis court surfaces, each offering unique playing characteristics:

  • Macadam Surfaces: Made from macadam surfacing, with an acrylic surface layer. They offer a balance of speed and bounce, suitable for various playing styles.
  • Polymeric Surfaces (or Rubber Courts): Composed of rubber granules or cushioned layers. These offer good traction and are often used for training and recreational purposes due to their durability and lower impact on joints.
  • Artificial Grass Courts: Synthetic sports surfaces mimicking grass. They offer durability and low maintenance.
  • Acrylic Courts: Made with acrylic material layers over a concrete or asphalt base. Common in professional tournaments, providing a medium-fast surface.
  • Clay Courts: Made of crushed shale, stone, or brick. They're slow, with high ball bounce, favouring baseline players.
  • Natural Grass Courts: Comprise closely mown grass. Fast with low bounce, they benefit players with strong serve and volley skills.

There is a variety of tennis court surface types which you are able to choose from when installing a brand new tennis court surface each surface features its own benefits, which in turn accommodate individual skills and prerequisites.

By far the most predominant surface type that we install is macadam surfacing, which is stone mixed with a tar compound that produces a porous surfacing.

Porous macadam surfaces are incredibly durable and hard wearing, that makes it's the most suitable surface type for facilities which will be getting a great deal of use in the course of its product life.

Additionaly, polymeric rubber surfaces are highly sought after regarding tennis courts and MUGAs.

This particular spec is made up of coloured EPDM rubber granules which get mixed with a specialist mixture, this mixture will be applied on top of a macadam sub base.

For each and every facility that has a hard surface, a colour coating or neutral anti-slip paint, should be applied to boost the safety and performance characteristics of the facility.

Playground Tennis Surfaces in

The installation of sports court facilities frequently occurs in universities, domestic homes and various other sports facilities; we offer a number of different services with regard to building and maintenance.

Primary and secondary schools often have tennis courts built onto their existing school playgrounds as these are often porous macadam tennis courts.

Sports Facility Maintenance

It’s necessary to make your tennis court surface cleaned and taken care of to be sure it is safe and does not become damaged.

There is a variety of sports court rejuvenation techniques that you can use to get rid of dirt and pollutants from your surfacing.

In case you have a hard court specification like macadam or polymeric rubber, regular brushing and jet washing is easily the most common type of rejuvenation that you can do.

The brushing and jet washing is completed to blast away any herbal matter or filth and also stopping the development of contaminants like algae and moss.
