A tennis court is basically a standard element of any new sports or recreation complex. Courts built at hotels or holiday resorts enrich the facility's offer, and so investors are increasingly deciding to put up a tennis court there.
Tennis can be a technically and physically demanding sport, and the type of surface has a major impact on both of these aspects. For this reason, it is important to choose a tennis court surface that will ensure comfort and safety in the game, suited to the level, skills and physical conditions of the players. The second important factor is obviously the cost of laying the surface, its servicing and maintenance.
Tennis courts with a synthetic surface
Synthetic tennis grass is 11-17 mm high and is one of the most popular court surfaces. Like all synthetic sports surfaces, it is characterized by very high weather resistance, high functionality and low maintenance costs.
A court built on synthetic grass is very elastic and smooth. The ball bounces quickly and relatively low. The player has very little time to run to the ball and is forced to shorten the swing. A game on a synthetic grass court is characterized by short rallies and matches. Synthetic grass courts are preferred by players with a strong service, aggressive style and the ability to play well at the net.
Tennis courts with an acrylic surface
Courts with an acrylic surface are a type of hard court. They can be installed both indoors and outdoors. They have all the features of a sports acrylic surface, where the ball bounces quickly and at medium height. Due to the high grip, it is not possible to slide on this type of surface. Rallies are varied, although not very long.
Tennis courts with a polyurethane surface
Sports polyurethane surfaces, due to their elasticity and flexibility, are perfect for sports fields of many sports. Courts with polyurethane surfaces are also gaining in popularity. Uniform and seamless polyurethane mats are provided in thicknesses from 10 mm to 100 mm. They are usually laid over asphalt or asphalt-concrete. A court with a polyurethane surface is flexible and safe for the joints. The ball bounces relatively quickly and at a medium height, so the pace of the game is fast.
