Why choose a hard court?

If you are interested in having a home tennis court constructed you need to make a decision on the surface you want to have. Undoubtedly the hard court is the most popular surface for courts in the UK, but you also have a range of options such as synthetic grass and artificial clay. With the variety of possibilities available it can be difficult to make a decision. So here are some good reasons to choose a hard court.

Easy to maintain

One of the advantages for hard courts over synthetic tennis courts is that they are the easiest kind of tennis surface to clean and maintain. The maintenance of a hard court is as simple as sweeping the court regularly, with occasional power washing in order to keep the court in great condition. It will also be occasionally necessary to repaint the surface.

Hard wearing

Another advantage of the hard court is the fact that it is very hard wearing. If you are going to get a lot of use out of your court, you should definitely opt for a hard surface. Even if you use your court very regularly, the porous macadam surface will last for many years as long as it is cleaned and maintained properly.

More cost effective

This follows on slightly from the previous point. The fact that the court is hard wearing means that it takes far longer to wear out and need replacing. This means that you will get more years of life out of your court without having to pay for any resurfacing work. It should also be noted that the cost of having a hard court installed will be lower in the first place. So overall this is by far the most cost-effective option if you’re looking to have a tennis court constructed.
