Tennis Court Maintenance

Keeping your court in peak condition requires routine maintenance. Our Tennis Court Maintenance guide outlines a recommended schedule to keep your court safe and healthy for players of all ages. Find out:

Dirt, leaves, pine needles and other organic debris contaminate the surface, and can also create low spots that collect water. These areas provide a perfect environment for mold and mildew to thrive. Regularly sweep your courts with a broom or brush designed for synthetic surfaces to prevent damage and to remove unwanted material. If you use a pressure washer to clean your court, limit the amount of pressure used and avoid holding the tip too close to the surface.

Tennis Court Maintenance for All-Weather Playability

A functional drainage system is vital to prevent water buildup and subsequent court damage. Examine drains and gutters regularly for blockages or damage.

Weeds and other vegetation should be trimmed regularly to ensure they do not grow on or over the surface of the court. It is important to treat weeds with an appropriate herbicide that does not damage the court.

Cracks should be repaired as soon as they appear. Ignoring cracks will result in their widening and will ultimately cause damage to the subbase and require costly repair.

Watering is required to maintain a firm, playable court and should be done on a scheduled basis depending on your climate. We recommend a minimum of once overnight and once during the day.
