Prepare your tennis courts for summer

Listed Under: Blog

We may still be in the midst of Coronavirus but with outdoor tennis courts able to be used again, and the spell of good weather we are having, if your tennis courts aren't regularly maintained during autumn and winter, moss and debris can build up on the surface, compromising grip and drainage. Not only this but harsh weather conditions can also cause the court line markings to become faded and the surface weakened and disintegrated. 

Our top tips for prepping your tennis courts for use are:

Moss and weeds

If you have discovered that your tennis court has a build-up of moss and weeds this can be resolved through the use of a knapsack sprayer and a number of products that are currently available on the market. We use Qualgex when we carry out this maintenance surface for businesses, to kill and rid their tennis courts of moss and weeds.

Debris

Once you have rid your tennis court of moss and weeds, you can then use a high-pressure water washer to remove any debris and improve the drainage. When we clear debris from tennis courts we always ensure we are careful not to damage the tarmac surface of the court.

Weakened tennis court surface

Whether your tennis court surface has been damaged from the harsh weather conditions of the autumn and winter months, or whether it has become damaged whilst carrying out maintenance, we can help. We offer a tennis court painting service, known as Colour Coating and Zone Marking, which helps to prolong the life of a court's tarmac surface. However, if your court surface has already been weakened, we will apply a specially formulated product known as a binder before we carry out Colour Coating. Adding this binder will help to hold the surface together, extending the life of the court and providing a professional, textured surface.

Court line markings

The harsh weather conditions of the autumn and winter months can also take its toll on the line markings of your tennis court. We offer a wide range of sports markings services including tennis court line marking, where we can either mark out completely new lines or we can mark over existing lines. When we mark out a tennis court we use two coats of textured paint to ensure that the court will maintain a fresh, clean appearance throughout the entire tennis season and onwards.

We hope the tips we have provided on tennis court maintenance will help your business prepare for the next few months and beyond. If you require any advice or the help of our services we are more than happy to discuss your tennis court maintenance with you.
