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 tennis court construction 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 hard court is then installed to the area before a wearing course of macadam is laid.

This Sub Base specification gives the outdoor tennis courts and indoor tennis courts great stability as well as making it as level and even as possible, Indoor tennis courts are normally made with hard court surfacing.  

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 tennis courts surfaces 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 tennis court 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

  4. Install sports surfacing of your choice
  5. Paint the surfacing if you decide on macadam hard court or polymeric
