Whether you’re building new Tennis Court Construction or renovating your existing tennis court, proper site preparation and excavation are critical. A qualified contractor will ensure that the soil is graded and a proper subbase, subdrain, and asphalt or concrete pavement layer are in place to give your court long-term performance and protection.
Once the site is prepped the next step is to install the court’s foundation. For outdoor courts we typically recommend concrete slab construction – either reinforced or post-tension. Post-tension concrete uses a grid of steel cables anchored to beams around the perimeter which improves the tensile strength of the concrete, allows for thinner slabs, and eliminates the need for control joints.
In addition to the type of concrete used, it’s important to consider other elements like surface color and texture and whether to have a cushioned or hard court. We also offer a variety of fencing, bleachers, and lighting options to complete your facility and enhance the playing experience for players and spectators alike.
For the best results when constructing your Tennis Courts it’s important to use a qualified professional contractor with experience in tennis court construction and running track construction. A good way to find a contractor is to ask for references from colleagues who have similar facilities in your area. Ask about their experience with the contractor and how they handled any unforeseen issues that arose during construction.
Asphalt courts are easy to construct and provide a relatively low cost but require frequent maintenance to maintain their quality, whereas a post-tension concrete system is more expensive but has a longer lifespan. Both types can be financed and both are tax-deductible.
