Most residential tennis courts are made with a concrete or asphalt base. Though these materials do have their benefits, you may want to update them due to curb appeal. This usually leads homeowners to the option of a synthetic turf tennis court. If you are not sure if this is an ideal option for you and your needs, here are some benefits to consider.

Reduced Height Change

When you consider going to a synthetic turf for your tennis court, you may consider the look and feel, but there is something else to consider. When you are in a game of tennis, one of the quickest things that can ruin your game and score is a change in ground height. This can be common with concrete, asphalt, and natural grass courts. With a synthetic turf, you have a reduced change of the height or pile change giving you a more even layout for the court. This gives you a more consistent play field that is maintained over time.

Reduced Line Issues

One of the issues many people have with traditional court materials, such as natural grass, is the chance of faded lines and court markings. This means that you have to take time and respray the markings on a routine basis. They can also fade with asphalt and concrete due to heavy rains or simple natural weather conditions such as sun fading. A synthetic turf tennis court has a reduced chance of fading. This means less time spent repainting the lines and more time spent on the court in the game. It also offers the benefit of truer lines and reduced issues with lines moving or becoming uneven due to wear on the court.

Reduced Maintenance Time

Most synthetic turf tennis courts have easy cleaning and maintenance routines. In fact, most people find that simply spraying off the turf is enough to maintain it during reasonable weather. You can also purchase covers that can be placed over the synthetic turf during the off season to maintain them from snow, ice, and other weather conditions. The turf will also maintain their bright natural colour for longer and add to curb appeal year round.

These are just a few of the benefits of switching to synthetic turf tennis courts. If you think this may be a good option for your needs, consider contacting a contractor for pricing. They can offer a consultation and determine what options and designs may be ideal for you and your curb appeal or use goals.
