Operating since 1986 we have a vast wealth of knowledge and experience on a large variety of indoor & outdoor tennis court surfaces including tar-macadam, acrylics', artificial grass & artificial clay, polymeric, rubber and clay.

In addition to work on standard tennis courts and Multi-Use Games Areas, we have been instrumental in the development of the L.T.A. initiative to promote junior tennis with specilaised Kids Zone areas and intermediate orange markings.

We can supply budget costs and maintenance programmes to aid business planning and are happy to provide quotations and advice without obligation.

 We have been involved with many high level Indoor and Outdoor installations for the Lawn Tennis Association. Our associate company Plexipave (UK) Ltd have been the sole authorised distributors and installers in the UK of the Plexipave and Plexicushion tennis court surfacing systems since 1986 and with the Lee Har-tru American Fastdry clay systems since 1994.

 

Popular types of Tennis Court Surface

In the UK, the most popular type of tennis court surface is porous macadam. Other popular recreational tennis surfaces are sand-filled artificial grass and red sand-filled artificial clay.

All-weather surfaces are constantly developing, and Har-Tru's synthetic carpet infiled with clay TRUCLAY is becoming ever more popular across Northern Europe.

The four Grand Slam tournaments are played on high performance surfaces providing different speeds of play and skill:

 The Australian Open uses a specialist cushioned acrylic hard court surface called Plexicushion Prestige, whilst the French Open has always been played on clay. Wimbledon is known for it's unique and famous natural lawn grass courts, and the final Grand Slam of the year, the US Open is played on a fast acrylic surface made by the same US manufacturer as Plexicushion, Decoturf.
