How long does a tennis court construction take?

One of the most common questions we receive from homeowners interested in having a tennis court constructed is: how long will the process take? It is undoubtedly an important issue given the implications of having a part of the home or garden be a construction site for a period of time. However, it can be a difficult question to answer because there are a number of factors to consider.

Standard construction time

It is challenging to give something like an estimated construction time without having had a chance to look over the proposed site. This is why we will always carry out a survey of the area that you would like to have turned into a court so that we can give you a good estimate of the time that it will take. Here we will consider some of the potential challenges such as levelling the surface or carrying out other groundworks.

Weather permitting

Another issue that can affect court construction time is the weather. This is why it is common for tennis courts to be constructed over the summer months to attempt to minimise this problem. Starting construction over the rainy season can extend the completion time significantly.

The process

Ultimately, having a court constructed will always take a minimum of around two months. The groundwork needs to be completed and allowed to cure for a period of time before the actual court surface can be constructed.
