hen deciding to have a tennis court built on your property, you should
always work with an experienced contractor because they can guide you
in the right direction. While considering many other factors, you should
also talk to your contractor and learn about the kind of maintenance your selected
tennis court will need. Tennis courts are of different types, and some will require
general maintenance, while you will need to think of tennis court resurfacing for
other types of courts. However, you should bear in mind that no matter what type
of surface you select, you will always have to spend time and money to maintain it
properly. Without proper maintenance, you will not be able to keep your tennis
court in a playable condition. Here is how to plan your maintenance:
You should clean or sweep your tennis court on a daily basis. In case you
have a clay court, you will have to water it twice a day if it is an outdoor
court. Even indoor courts need to be watered once a day. You also need to
brush their court lines often. Sand-filled surfaces are better in that they do
not require water but have to be swept regularly to remove debris. You will
also have to water your grass court daily.
You should be inspecting your tennis court weekly for any serious issues.
You do not need to worry about tennis court resurfacing here, but you will
certainly get an idea if things are going wrong or need more attention. You
can notice minor damage and have it repaired in a timely manner. In case of
clay courts, you need to roll it once every week to keep it flat. Outdoor
acrylic courts require cleaning on a weekly basis.
You should consider power washing before the season starts. It is especially
important for outdoor and indoor acrylic courts. You need to fertilize and
trim your grass courts pre-season and use a power broom on your sand-filled
You should properly clean the surface of outdoor and indoor acrylic courts
post-season. There may be cracks in the surface, so you have to fill it after
the season is finished and do not wait until the next season starts. Your sand-
filled courts may require fungicide and algaecide application after each
In addition, you should consider about long term maintenance as well, which may
require tennis court resurfacing. You usually need resurfacing if your tennis court
is 5-8 years old. However, acrylic courts usually require tennis court resurfacing in
3-5 years. An issue with clay courts is that the surface may erode after some time,
which requires a new lift after 5-7 years. Be sure to work with a reputable
contractor and engage the services of a specialist for the proper maintenance of
your tennis court. Only an expert can help you with serious issues, especially the
ones that call for tennis court resurfacing.
