Fix depressions:

A depression is any area on the court that holds more than a nickel’s depth of water after allowing the court to dry 1 hours in direct sun light.

These depressions can be addressed with by pouring court patch binder into the deepest area and raising the area with this material in order to help eliminate the depressions.

Apply acrylic resurfacer to tennis courts. Mix as per instructions. Varying amounts of clean silica sand depending on the condition of the court.

Apply two to three coats of Color Coat Concentrate. This is the wearing surface so make sure that it is evenly applied over the entire court surface.

A few tips:
Always keep a fresh supply of water on site to ensure that all tools are cleaned of after use.
Mix the materials consisentantly after each coat this will ensure an even result.
Once the materials are mixed apply it right away.
