Tennis Court Maintenance

Tennis Court Maintenance

Tennis Court Maintenance is a daily routine that keeps your courts at optimal performance. Regularly scrubbing your surface with nylon or hair-type brushes, and cleaning your courts regularly with a pressure washer with a maximum 1500psi, will keep your court in top playing condition. If using a pressure washer, please follow all instructions for proper use to prevent damage to coatings.Go here:

Check and clear the area drains around the court on a regular basis to ensure they are functional. Drainage is a critical part of any court construction and must function properly to reduce early deterioration of the asphalt surface. If puddles are seen on the court, check to make sure they are not caused by drainage problems in the adjacent landscaping or turf areas.

Tennis Court Maintenance During Tournaments and Events

Leaves, twigs, pine needles, and ball fuzz should be removed on a regular basis as they stain the court surface. They are also ideal breeding grounds for mold and mildew. Mould and mildew will accelerate the wear of the coatings if left unattended. This is especially important in shady areas.

All cracks on a court should be repaired as soon as they appear. Larger cracks can allow water into the court and cause subbase failure. Small cracks can be filled with a specialized crack filler and larger cracks can be repaired by a professional. An annual inspection by a sports surfacing professional is recommended to evaluate the condition of your court, looking for cracks and low spots.
