Is your hard tennis court experiencing distress in the form of cracks, wear, and bird baths?
Whether your tennis court is built for club use or it is for your school students or it’s for your own use, hard court tennis surfaces require timely and considered maintenance practices. Maintenance of tennis courts is often not taken seriously enough. I represent http://www.sportsurfaces.com/, a tennis court maintenance and resurfacing company based in the West Palm Beach, Florida. My purpose to write this blog is to give you detailed guidance about how to keep your hard court in tip-top condition – from prevention of damage.
Tennis court resurfacing is actually a two-phase process. As it involves aggressive repair of the existing court structure, which is commonly called a “repair phase” and then it is followed by the application of an acrylic coating system, which is known as “surfacing phase”. Seasonal freezing and thawing are the main causes, why even a well-constructed hard courts develop cracks, low spots and require maintenance over time.
However, resurfacing tennis court is a very crucial process as it restores the court’s playability factors, improve it’s appearance and extend the life of the court by preserving the integrity of the asphalt court base. The purpose of the hard court resurfacing procedure is to repair the structural cracks. Following resurfacing, Sport Surfaces provides an annual maintenance program to keep your court in good shape. In fact, we have a crew dedicated to servicing Sport Surfaces customers. We pride ourselves on keeping your court safe, playable and looking good for years after the court has been resurfaced.
Tennis courts resurfacing begin with a comprehensive repair process. Successful resurfacing depends on quality repair work that will last. In order to prepare the court for resurfacing, structural cracking is repaired with a concrete compound and supported with the Tri-Force Crack Repair System. This system helps prevent the cracks from returning to the surface by expanding and contracting with the movement of the crack. To improve the playability, low spots and depressions are also repaired with cement skim coats. There are many other repairs such as perimeter corrections, removal and repair of old delaminated court material and high spot removal.
When tennis courts are resurfaced or surfaced for the first time, they are painted with a multi-layer paint system that seals the voids in the asphalt, creates surface texture and protects the asphalt from damage. Coating systems ultimately enhances the overall play-ability and gives the surface a vibrant new color scheme. Bright white playing lines are the finishing touch to accentuate the color contrast between the center playing area and the perimeter of the court.

Cushioned Coating Systems
A cushioned surface option is available. This system combines the same consistency and durability as the standard coating system, but adds layers of rubber particles or “cushion” to absorb shock and reduce the impact on a player’s body. It is primarily used for tennis courts; however, it can also be installed on basketball courts. Although there are several variations of a cushioned system, the ideal system features five layers of rubberized particles that are applied to the court surface after all repair work is completed. After each coat of rubber is installed the final color system is applied. When finished, the court looks and feels like a traditional hard court, but the surface is much softer and easier on the body.
