Types of Tennis Courts
At Court Contractors Ltd., tennis is our business. We can create various types of courts including asphalt, clay and synthetic surfaces.
- Asphalt Penetration:This is also referred to as soft asphalt. It is uses layers of clear stone where each layer is sprayed with a rapid setting liquid asphalt to give it a sliding surface that is easy on the back, knees and feet. This type of court does not require any maintenance, and the coarsest stone used is ¾” clear through to the final layer, which is 1/16” in size.
- Hotmix:Also known as hard asphalt, the surface of a hotmix court is comprised of compacted fine asphalt put in place by a mechanical spreader.
- Har Tru:This is a clay court with a surface of about 1 inch in thickness and like soft asphalt it provides a sliding surface. Clay courts are made of a computerized mix of crushed volcanic rock that requires watering and rolling to keep its playability. The amount of play will determine how much maintenance is required for this kind of court.
- Acrylic Surfaces:This surface is specifically geared for asphalt penetration and hotmix courts. We use only the best – California Sport Surfaces – the surface provider of the US Open and the Australian Open..
- Synthetic Surfaces:Synthetic surfaces include artificial grass, artificial clay, cushion overlays and the latest manufactured surface product. We’ve seen so many different products and technological “advancements” with tennis court construction so we know what works and what doesn’t.
