Constructing a Tennis Court

Tennis Court Contractors are experts in all aspects of building and constructing a sporting facility. We offer a reliable, professional service at a great price.

There are many factors involved when constructing a tennis court and it is important that you get a professional to talk you through them.

Once planning permission is approved the construction of the pitch can commence.

This starts with excavating and removing the existing surface down to the necessary depths, once this has been completed PCC edges are laid to the perimeter of the area and a Geotextile laid over the whole area. MOT Type 1 stone is then poured onto the area and spread evenly before being heavy compacted and rolled. Open textured base macadam is then installed to the area before a wearing course of macadam is laid.

This Sub Base specification gives the court great stability as well as making it as level and even as possible.

Other positives of constructing a sub-base to this specification are that it is porous and permeable making the sub-base fully SuDS compliant. A SuDS compatible surface means that water is allowed to pass through the surface suitably into the substrata instead of flowing directly into the drains and overburdening them and causing them to flood.

How to Construct a Tennis Court Near Me

As professionals in the construction industry, we know just how to construct a tennis facility closest to you so that it will last a long time. We follow simple steps when constructing sports facilities in your surrounding area which are as follows:

  1. Excavate/dig up the existing surface to required depth
  2. Lay down a geotextile membrane
  3. Stone up and install sub base
  4. Install sports surfacing of your choice
  5. Paint the surfacing if you decide on macadam or polymeric
  6. Install line markings

The process of installing a nearby sports facility will vary depending on the surface type.

If you're having a macadam hard-court installed, less prep work will be needed, as only a stone sub-base is required. We recommend thinking about your budget and plan for your local facility before having the area constructed.

You may wish to play a number of sports on the facility, along with tennis, you may find that the types of sport you wish to play will affect the surface that you should have installed.

Once constructed you may also require maintenance including repainting and relining, to ensure the upkeep. 


Building Tennis Courts

As well as the construction and the sub-base and surfacing to a sports facility it is also important to consider other things such as fencing and lighting. There are a number of different fencing options available such as chain link, rebound, super rebound and many more.

In terms of lighting, there are several options available, however, it is important to get planning permission where using lighting especially when the sports court is to be built in a residential area. The amount and number of floodlights needed to light the courts will depend on the size of the court being constructed, on smaller areas 4 lights may be sufficient however on large facilities where they are multiple courts, 6 or 8 may be needed.

All aspects of building and constructing a sporting facility will need the skill, experience and expertise of specialist contactor.

The ground preparation works will need a skilled groundworker with a vast knowledge of civil engineering, the surfacing will need a specialist sports surface installer and the fencing and lighting will have to be supplied and installed by professionals from those areas.
