Synthetic clay tennis courts are installed with a specialist turf carpet which is dyed to match the colour of real clay, and has a sand infill installed to mimic the playing characteristics.
The artificial clay court specification is designed to give the same playing qualities as real clay, but with much fewer maintenance requirements and a porous surface which lets water drain away easily.
We can create designs and carry out the installation of synthetic clay tennis surfaces for a range of organisations in the UK which are looking for a premium surface with low maintenance needs.
Having artificial clay tennis court surfacing in installed for your sports facility or club can give great opportunities to young players looking to develop their skills on the best sport court specification. Clay courts are often favoured by professional tennis stars as they are much more comfortable to play on than hard courts, and their performance capabilities are far better. Although natural-clay is preferred by most high profile tennis players, this surface specification can be very messy and difficult to maintain which means it's not always sustainable for local clubs and schools.

Artificial clay court surfacing can be a great option as it has playing qualities that are identical to real-clay with an ITF court pace 2 medium/slow rating, but the maintenance is much simpler and less time consuming. Real-clay court surfaces are not permeable so they can easily hold water and become flooded during wet weather. However manmade surfacing systems are made up of a synthetic carpet and a layer of sand infill, this system is porous so it allows rain water to pass through it and game play can continue. These all weather sports court properties make manmade clay a versatile and durable surface type for tennis. To ensure clear and accurate game play, we offer professional tennis line markings for nearby artificial courts, hard courts and synthetic turf surfaces as well as their surrounding areas.

The bright terracotta colouring of the manmade carpet gives an artificial surface the striking appearance of real-clay, and the specialised sand layer is baked to match the colour. Baking the sand is a much better way of giving it this colour compared to the traditional method of dying it. This is because the dyed sand can lose its colour as a result of exposure to the sun, and the dye can rub off on players' clothes leaving permanent stains. The baked sand specification is much more UV stable and also the colour will not transfer onto clothes or cause any mess. Artificial sport surfacing can also be used for indoor courts near me, as it doesn’t throw up any dust so the surface is not limited to outdoor use.

The costs of synthetic clay tennis courts installation will vary for each different project as area size, site access and location all have to be taken into account before the construction process begins. However choosing to install artificial surfacing may be a very cost effective option for your organisation as a whole. This is because the synthetic system could be installed over an existing macadam surface which may have suffered minor damage or does not have the best playing qualities anymore. The macadam surfacing may be repaired and provide a suitable sub base for the new carpet of a synthetic court to be laid out onto, meaning there is no need to have a full resurfacing project carried out.
Once installed, synthetic courts costs are kept low as there is no need for the heavy maintenance which is required for real-clay. Simply brushing and re-spreading the sand infill on a regular basis can keep an artificial court in good condition and playing well, where natural flooring requires grooming, watering and relining every day. The low maintenance requirements of this manmade carpet surface can save your organisation time and money, and more time may be spent enjoying the sport rather than cleaning and maintaining the surface. We may help you create a bespoke tennis court design http://tenniscourtcontractors.co.uk/other/tennis-court-design-spcification/ which will suit both your budget and the performance requirements you have.
