Tips for Choosing a Tennis Court Surface

Today, there is a wide range of modern tennis court surfaces available. When choosing the surface for your future tennis court, you must certainly take climate, geographical location, personal preferences, and other decisive factors into account. Hence, TennisKit24 compiled an overview of the characteristics of different tennis court surfaces to help you find the most suitable surface.

The Best Surface for a Private Tennis Court is…

Artificial grass, of course!

Artificial grass as a tennis court surface is an increasingly popular choice. It is ideally suited for a tennis court in a home garden and a court that is intended for the whole community to share. 

What are the main advantages of artificial turf?

Advantages of Artificial Grass Surface for a Private Tennis Court

The construction of artificial grass tennis courts is significantly simpler and cheaper compared to other surfaces.The construction process essentially consists of only two stages: constructing a high-quality base and installing artificial grass. 

In addition to affordable construction, the great advantage of artificial grass is easy maintenance. The artificial grass needs more thorough maintenance only once a year in the spring, before the start of the reason. Thanks to the weatherproof and durable nature of the artificial grass, general maintenance is also easy. Mainly, the court only needs to be cleaned regularly from leaves and debris. Less maintenance, more playing time!

Artificial grass is also considered one of the most foot-friendly and safe court surfaces. It reduces the pressure on the players’ joints due to its softness. By its nature, artificial grass is a relatively quick court surface. One of the significant advantages of artificial grass is that the surface dries quickly after rain. Also, artificial grass is significantly less slippery than other tennis court surfaces when wet. As a result, the playing time is longer, and players can use the court more.

Artificial Grass Tennis Court Color Options

A wide range of artificial grass color combinations is available for the play area and the running area so that the court fits your home garden perfectly:

  • Red / Summer-Green
  • Red / Green
  • Green / Summer-Green
  • Green / Green
  • Summer-Green / Summer-Green
  • Blue / Green

The color options do not differ in terms of playing conditions and quality – they are equally foot-friendly and soft. You can choose the color of the tennis court according to your color and design preferences.

Artificial grass surfaces are produced with different pile lengths, which affect the game’s characteristics. For example, artificial grass with a lower pile length (10 mm) is more dense and has more uniform bounce and court surface. Tennis courts with this type of artificial grass surface are the most similar to natural grass tennis courts.

Artificial grass with a larger pile height (20 mm) is more sparse and requires twice as much infill sand, making the surface sandier and more slippery.

TennisKit24 recommends: If you plan to build a private tennis court, the first choice could be artificial grass to ensure the best value for money.
