Thinking of adding a tennis court to your property or redoing the one you already have? Tennis is a favorite outside activity this time of year right up through the fall so making sure it’s in top form is a good investment. While most people think of clay courts here, we shouldn’t forget about the classic grass courts. Grass courts remain popular because they are actually the fastest surface for tennis. Even better than grass, artificial turf offers a number of benefits that grass cannot beat.
Artificial turf courts are easy to build
A good sub-base, turf, and infill, and you’re ready to add your lines and net. Compared with building a clay court, the turf can be a more economical option as well as a straightforward install.
A great benefit to a tennis court built with artificial turf is that the maintenance is fairly easy. It weathers well and is not subject to some of the wear and environmental maintenance issues that clay or other hard surfaces might involve. Think of the turf court like a backyard. You want to regularly clear any debris (branches, sticks, leaves, or anything left behind) and you are good to go.
Annually, you will want to do some more extensive maintenance to make sure everything is in top shape and holding together well, but it’s easy as calling a turf pro to check it out and see what it needs. Sometimes you may need to redo the lines, but again that’s par for the curse regales of the court surface.
A player-friendly court
Artificial turf has some great benefits for the players as well. For one thing, it’s a lot more impact-friendly. All that running and jumping can get hard on the joints. A turf court provides a lot softer of a surface so the knees will definitely thank you. The occasional tumble will also be a lot less impactful than a hard-surface court. Overall, it’s a surface that goes a lot easier on the body can help to minimize any potential injuries.
Rain can ruin any day on an outdoor court and bring a good match to a halt or make the court a lot more dangerous.
Artificial turf dries quickly and is a lot less slippery. Not only does this shorten any delays, but in the long run, it extends the courts usability due to its ability to rebound quickly from the weather.
