Applying a fresh non slip coloured coating to your tennis court can drastically improve the playing qualities and make the area safer for players by creating more grip on the surface.
Acrylic or polyurethane sports paint is applied to hard court surfaces and is available in many different colours so you can chose a simple design or a multi coloured application to give your facility a unique appearance.
When repainting a tennis court surface it's important to carry out a thorough clean to ensure a smooth and seamless application which will give the best playing qualities.
Repainting tennis courts surfaces is carried out to existing worn surfaces in order to enhance the appearance and surface grip which is set out by governing bodies LTA, SAPCA and ITF. The repainting system is usually sprayed and painted to rundown worn existing courts by a specialist contractor or builder and for this reason a waterbase court binder coat is usually applied to strengthen the existing surface and prolong the life of the court.

Tennis court repainting is the process of painting over an existing sport facility to restore the original qualities and improve the overall appearance of your court. The tennis court repainting is carried out to polymeric courts in a polyurethane moisture cure paint and is known as a flash coat because many polyurethane colour coatings are painted and sprayed onto a black EPDM rubber crumb surface. This makes certain that when the paint starts to wear down then the black rubber will start to show through highlighting the need to repaint the surface to keep the non slip resistant properties within the national governing bodies LTA, ITF, SAPCA specification. We'll also apply new tennis lines http://tenniscourtcontractors.co.uk/maintenance/tennis-court-relining/ to ensure that the flooring has the best playing qualities.
Sports courts surface re-painting on open textured porous macadam can also be carried out in a polyurethane colour coated paint specification however the majority of the tennis courts are painted in an acrylic water based painted system which is perfect to the tarmac surfaces. These aggregate rich coloured paint coatings need to be installed in the correct weather conditions when it is dry and not windy. You can fill in our contact form to speak to one of our experts closest to you and find out more about the prices to repaint courts at schools colleges and leisure centres.
The painted non slip finish will become worn and in need of a flash coat every few years and a pressure wash clean is always completed prior to the painting visit. The pressure wash cleaning is to remove all contamination so that the newly installed colour painted coating material can bond to the surfacing. Contamination can come from near my trees and other vegetation and can become a perfect habitat for moss and algae to grow. If left on the surface this moss and algae can create an ‘algal squidge’ that can become both dangerously slippery and drainage inhibiting. This means that your surface will no longer have the correct anti slip qualities it requires as well as no longer being porous causing water to hold on the surfacing meaning the sports surface will no longer be SUDS compliant, have standing water, flood and become waterlogged.
Once the maintenance has been completed and the area has received a deep clean, the repainted flash coat can take place, the painted flash coat involves repainting the current coat to renew both its appearance and anti-slip levels. Usually the recolouring paint coat lasts longer than the existing acrylic or polyurethane coating as this original layer of paint acts as an undercoat. A contrasting colour of paint can be applied for the sports line markings http://tenniscourtcontractors.co.uk/applications/tennis-court-line-marking/ to create a unique design. There are several colours of both acrylic and polyurethane paints available for macadam and polymeric tennis courts these include:
