When we talk about tennis, we tend to think about grass courts, but grass courts like any other natural surface, has limits. They can’t be used continuously as it damages the grass and the general surface. If it rains at Wimbledon, then the game is stopped and the court is covered. Players won’t compete on the grass surface, due to the fear of getting an injury and so everyone waits. You would think then, that a synthetic surface would be the best option as it is the option chosen for football, basketball and a number of other sports.
A synthetic surface on a tennis court provides a softer and more forgiving playing surface, but with a lot less maintenance than its grass counterpart. When thinking about your new tennis court construction, it is clear that a synthetic surface offers a better cushion because the fibers are softer. Tennis courts can even be installed on the tops of buildings and other unusual areas. Just because there is no grass, doesn’t mean that you can’t have a few quick sets of tennis. The synthetic surface can be installed without the need for heavy equipment and it is installed much quicker as well.
When constructing your new tennis court, it is good to know that the synthetic surface can be placed over the old asphalt or concrete area. However, cracks and rough areas need to be fixed before laying down the new covering. Synthetic surfaces allow kids to play in safety and adults as well. If there is an impact when playing tennis, then this unique surface stops most of the shock returning to the body. The playing area for the tennis game can be lined out on a permanent basis, and there is no need to cut or weed.
Make Easier Decisions.
The synthetic surface on a tennis court will keep its deep, rich colours, no matter if you choose green or any other colour. The colour won’t fade on the baseline, which allows for more accurate decisions if we are unsure if a serve was in or out. Once built you need to insure that no food or drink are permitted onto your new surface and if a little spill occurs, then clean it up quickly with plain water or other appropriate cleaner recommended for the surface. You also should not allow people to smoke on the synthetic court for obvious reasons.
Take care of your new tennis court and it, in turn, will take care of you and your family. Be sure to give it fairly regular maintenance by giving it a brush and general clean up. Playing on this new surface will provide you with a unique playing experience and you will find your game improving, as you have a better grip and can turn much quicker. So, if you want to bring Wimbledon to your home, then installing a synthetic surface for your tennis court is the right move, and because it’s not grass, then you can play whenever you or your family want. If it starts raining, keep playing.
