Acrylic Tennis Court Construction

At Sovereign Sports, we specialise in designing and installing high-performance acrylic tennis courts for clubs, schools, local authorities and private residences across the South East. With over 40 years of experience, we combine expert knowledge with a passion for service to deliver high-quality tennis courts that exceed expectations. Whether this is building an acrylic tennis court from scratch, retrofitting floodlighting, or fencing, or conducting routine tennis court maintenance and surfacing checks, Sovereign Sports can help.

All our acrylic tennis court installations are conducted in strict accordance with SAPCA codes of practice, as well as our own strict health and safety standards, for your peace of mind. Acrylic tennis courts (or hard courts) are arguably the most versatile, proving suitable for indoor or outdoor use. Most worldwide tennis tournaments are played on hard acrylic courts, while artificial clay and grass courts also have their place.

The Benefits of Acrylic Tennis Courts

Acrylic as a surface offers numerous advantages as a tennis court material, with many professional players and enthusiasts preferring it to other options.

What do acrylic courts offer?

  • Excellent ball bounce and cushioning for reduced injuries
  • Durable, seamless and consistent playing surface
  • Resilient to cracking and fading for a long lifespan
  • Minimal maintenance required
  • Customisable range of colour options

Cushioned Acrylic Courts

Our impervious acrylic tennis court system comprises a 6mm rubber cushioning mat which is bonded and coated using textured polymers to produce a superior cushioned playing surface. The system is made up of the cushioning mat which is adhered to the required substrate. A polyurethane self-levelling wear layer is then applied over the rubber mat to create a seamless base.

The surface is finished with our durable water-based acrylic topcoats which provide great playability, consistency and resilience. The coating system offers cushioning of 3-6mm to allow true ball bounce across all court areas.

As well as being extremely durable and resistant to wear, the cushioning effect will remain constant in all weather conditions for years of use.

For additional comfort underfoot, we recommend our cushioned acrylic courts. At Sovereign Sports, we use the SurfTech® Cushion product which is an impervious cushioned acrylic tennis surface that provides excellent UV resistance and resilience.

This ITF-approved system offers additional cushioning subsurface layers from 1 to 3mm in thickness. This liquid coating provides a slip-resistant top acrylic layer that adds to its durability and weatherproofing, withstanding all types of temperatures and conditions.

It’s no wonder why Sovereign Sports has been a trusted court surfacing provider for tennis courts, as well as those for other sports like netball, 5-a-side football, basketball, hockey and basketball. We offer various acrylic cushioning systems from leading manufacturers to suit your budget and performance needs.

Acrylic Court Line Marking

In addition to constructing high-quality acrylic tennis courts, Sovereign Sports also specialises in precision line marking to delineate playing areas. We use durable line marking paint and machines to mark out crisp, straight boundary lines, service boxes, and centre markings with a bright finishing touch and long-lasting durability. 

As part of regular tennis court maintenance, we also provide professional relining services to restore vibrancy to existing line markings. This helps rejuvenate older acrylic courts and hard surface courts and extends their usable lifetime.

Acrylic Court Repairs

Over time, even the highest-quality acrylic tennis courts can experience minor cracks and surface damage from extensive play and weathering. Sovereign Sports offers specialised tennis court repair services to fix these issues and prevent further deterioration. 

Our expert tennis court repair team has experience with filling cracks, patching holes, and resurfacing damaged areas on acrylic courts. We use industrial-grade patching polymeric compounds, polyurethane binders and compatible acrylic coatings to seamlessly repair the court for smooth, consistent ball bounce and traction. 

Cleaning Acrylic Courts

Ensuring regular cleaning is key to keeping your acrylic tennis court looking its best and maintaining its appearance. Sovereign Sports provides professional tennis court pressure washing tailored to deep clean the court surface and pores while removing debris, moss, and dirt buildup. 

A deep clean by our trusted technicians with powerful tennis court detergents, pressure washers, and moss or weed killer, will ensure that your tennis court looks and performs as intended all year round. When the correct tennis court cleaning methods are applied, the result is a fresh, safe, fast-draining acrylic court with robust stability and slip resistance.
