Properly maintain your tennis courts
The tennis industry states that if a hard court is properly maintained, the average life for it is approximately 25 years. Proper maintenance entails simply keeping the court clean on a monthly schedule (removal of leaves and blowing off the courts) and keeping any outside vegetation from encroaching onto the tennis courts. Every five years the tennis court should be resurfaced with a fresh acrylic surfacing system. .
Many of the problems that hard courts develop as they age are:
- Birdbaths (depressions), caused by the settling of the court
- Fencing issues
- Net post and center straps issues
- Foundation issues
- Water problems
The severity of these problems will depend on the quality of the original construction, site location, time of year it was constructed, quality of material, and whether the court has been maintained.
