Recurring Tennis Court Problems Resolved

Tennis court problems will eventually arise whether we like it or not. The good thing is that these problems can still be resolved in a timely fashion. We have listed below some of the most recurring tennis court problems, as well as the solutions that you need to resolve them.

  1. Fading

The colour of the tennis court surface lightens or fades due to extreme wear, exposure to the sun or when an unreliable surface material is used. This may be resolved with acrylic resurfacing.

  1. Rust

These are stains and marks in the tennis court. Appearing as a result of sediments of iron in the court pavement mixture, these rust spots may be eliminated and patched. Alternatively, you may cover rusty spots with a new acrylic coating or resurface the court.

  1. Discolouration

Parts of the tennis court may become brown or dark green in colour over time. This happens due to improper tennis court maintenance or a poor drainage system. Discoloured parts may become slippery because of the build-up of fungus and mildew. Easily removed by washing the court with a mild cleansing agent, you may then fix the drainage facilities in and out of the tennis court area.

  1. Cracks

There are two types of tennis court cracks: the hairline and the structural. Hairline cracks are typically shallow and are visible on the whole court surface. Structural cracks are deeper. They break under the court surface. Starting from one point of the court pavement, like the net post, these cracks may be caused by unsuitable surface materials, improper surfacing or the inappropriate assembly of post foundations. Overlaying of the court pavement may solve this problem but for more serious cases, the court should be fully renovated.

  1. Bubbles and bulges

Bubbles and soft bulges appear when there is too much moisture beneath the court pavement or there is stagnant water on the court’s surface. Unnecessary layers of acrylic covering may also be one of the causes of this problem. To solve this, the drainage should be fixed and maintained to its proper condition. Another solution for this is to flatten the pavement or eliminate the bulges, then cover the affected area.

These are just some of the tennis court problems that you might encounter. Proper maintenance services, from the professionals, is still the best way to prevent these problems from occurring.
