Why Is Regular Tennis Court Maintenance Important?

There are different types of flooring materials used on tennis court surfaces such as synthetic turf, polymeric macadam, and artificial clay; these will all need to be renovated over time.
Other aspects such as line markings, anti-slip colour coating, and water drainage systems should all be attended to. These renovations all come under a quote we can give you for your tennis court repair costs.
How Often Should a Tennis Surface Be Repaired?
Tennis courts are different from other sports surfaces and need to be resurfaced every 4 to 8 years. If proper court repairs in Birkenside are not completed, performances will not be as great as their potential. If a tennis court is experiencing severe decline or specific surface damage, it may need resurfacing more frequently.
Tennis Court Surface Lifespan
A lot of varying factors determines the life span of a tennis court. Things such as:
- Incorrect slope – This will create pools and ponding of water plus, early disruption of the acrylic surfacing system.
- Inadequate compaction – Makes the sport surface susceptible to distorting, damp, damage, cracking, and more.
- Incorrect/missing drainage system – Not having the correct drainage system in place could end up with a backup of water, amongst other problems, like surface bubbles/blisters, fast surface wear, and more.
If you have an acrylic tennis court, then maintenance will be at a minimum. This surface needs the least work done to it all year round but here are a few tips in how you can extend the life of your colour coating:
- Debris removal – Removal of debris such as leaves, pine needles, and any other organic elements that could build-up on your sports courts. This build-up can cause faster wear sports surface.
- Trim edges – Make sure that you trim grass, dirt, and vegetation around the edge of the court. These simple tasks will prevent potential water build-up that usually drains off the court. Having puddled water will breakdown the acrylic surfaces a lot sooner than usual, resulting in more frequent resurfacing.
- Regular cleaning – washing the surface regularly with a light to moderate pressure washer with mild detergents will help extend the life span of your tennis court and keep the surface looking good.

Common Tennis Court Repairs in Birkenside
To keep your tennis court in Birkenside Midlothian in its top condition, regular cleaning must be completed to remove any dirt, debris, and contaminants. Your sport surface could be covered in macadam, polymeric, or artificial grass, it will still need the proper maintenance at scheduled times for the surface to continue to perform how it should. Regular cleaning will also prevent any flooding or damage.
Cleaning any tennis court surface type will extend your court’s life span and improve safety. Removing debris from these synthetic surfaces regularly will prevent any potential blockages that could occur. Blockages of the drain system will stop water from draining, leaving your sport surface waterlogged and unsafe for use.
If you have a brand new ground material installed at your facility in either polymeric or macadam surfacing, it will often have a bright coloured anti-slip coating applied to the sports surface. This not only gives your facility a fun and exciting look but enhances the safety features of your tennis surface.
These anti-slip paint coatings usually come in one of three options:
Contrasting lines are used so multiple different sports and activities can be played on the same surface. With heavy use and damage caused by weather, overtime your bright colouring will begin to fade and wear away, leaving you with an unsafe slippery surface not suitable for use.
Rather than getting the entire sports surface of your facility renovated, a more cost-effective option is having the surface repainted.
Lots of sports clubs, schools and facilities need their tennis court resurfacing, transforming old worn out sports courts into a high-quality sports ground that can be enjoyed by everyone who uses it.
Damage caused due to weather and high volumes of use over time can leave your tennis court surfaces looking tired and grim, not performing how it should be. Problems like this can also affect the safety of your tennis court becoming unusable for anyone.
When it comes that you have your tennis court resurfaced there are several options that you can choose from, each with individual properties that suit different sports courts:
Macadam sports courts – This is a hard court usually fitted in schools and can also be used as an all-purpose facility, great for basketball, football, netball, and more.
Polymeric rubber surfacing – Made from a mixture of EPDM rubber and a binding agent, these polymeric surfaces are used on courts for various activities.
Sand-filled synthetic turf – Synthetic grass surfacing with a layer of sand with synthetic fibres that keep your sports grounds even throughout gameplay. Sand-filled pitches can be used for hockey and football.
Moss and Algae Removal
Moss and algae can build-up on any tennis surface in Birkenside Midlothian. They love damp areas and should be cleaned with specialist equipment rather than just being blasted with a power washer. Growth on your facility is usually a sign of a deep routed problem underneath the tennis court.
When we perform maintenance and cleaning on any tennis court, we initially remove all of the debris and clear out any blocked areas that can cause blockages causing water build-up. Our cleaning service will prevent the disintegration of your tennis grounds as well as the reappearance of algae and moss.
A properly clean hard court will deter any further algae problems you may be facing. Synthetic grass tennis court maintenance such as Savanna, Sporturf, and Tenniturf can all be kept damp and growth free with regular brushing from one of our rotary brush machines every month.
Finally, one of the most common tennis court repairs is the addition of acrylic, anti-slip paint. This coating is usually sprayed on top of macadam courts to finish the process. These specialist paints can be applied in lots of different colours with our design service. Bright colours include red, green, and blue.
The addition of this slip-resistant acrylic will improve the grip and traction of the ground, enhancing the facility’s performance qualities better for a variety of sports in Midlothian.
If your sports facility is going to be used for a range of different sports, line markings in contrasting colours can be applied great for courts playing basketball, netball, and more!
Slips can be prevented from general cleaning and regular maintenance. Not only will cleaning remove any residue such as wet leaves and debris that could be slippery, but it will also extend the life expectancy of your tennis grounds.
Our experts can also implement slip-resistant paint to make your court look better and perform better!
