The Role that Tennis Court Maintenance Plays in Tennis

Extensive damage to your tennis court will incur expensive fees for repairs. However, you won’t have to worry about these fees if you carry out proper tennis court maintenance to keep your court in top, playable condition. It’s not enough to employ the services of a certified tennis court builder to ensure that your tennis courts follow the right build, concept and design. To keep your tennis court at its best, proper tennis court maintenance takes the leading role.

The Role of Tennis Court Maintenance

Clean and well-maintained tennis courts are not just a matter of keeping up appearances. Tennis court experts predict that a well-designed and properly maintained hard court will deliver 25 years of service before it requires any major reconstruction. As tennis courts are considered to be somewhat of an investment these days that is something well worth taking into consideration.

As a responsible owner you will realise that tennis courts age with the best of us. Tennis court painting and markings will fade over time and may require re-painting or marking. Good, effective tennis court painting protects both the court surface and the players from injury. However, court misuse and improper or no maintenance program at all will sooner or later result in your tennis court’s premature ageing or damage. Here are some important points for you to consider when maintaining your court.

  • In-season and routine maintenance practices

There are plenty of routine maintenance practices that you can follow. However, it doesn’t necessarily mean that performing this maintenance is in season or appropriate to the particular type of tennis court. There are maintenance practices that are recommended for each specific season, depending on the court type. In general, your tennis court should undergo daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly preventive maintenance. Surface deterioration due to an unkempt court is one of the major reasons why your courts age prematurely, making it unfit for use. Whether it’s a minor problem like leaves, dust, dirt and other debris or if it’s something a bit more major like surface stains, cracks or scratches, in-season and routine maintenance practices will maintain a playable area.

  • Applying proven methods of repair and renovation when needed

One way or another, your tennis court will incur damage over frequent use. Scratches, worn-out paint, or fading markings are in definite sign that re-painting and re-marking your tennis court is required. Take note, tennis court repairs require professional services from expert tennis court maintenance providers. It might be easy to do a minor re-painting job or to fill a small crack but worse conditions will likely demand that you seek out professionals to carry out the repairs.
