Hard Courts (Asphalt)
Asphalt tennis courts are very popular among our customers for a variety of reasons. The most compelling advantage of an asphalt tennis court is that it requires little or no maintenance on a daily/weekly/monthly basis. This makes asphalt tennis courts very popular with private homeowners, apartments/condominiums, schools and municipalities. Court owners can also customize the color, speed and cushioning of the court to suit their individual preferences. Many private homeowners utilize their asphalt tennis courts for other activities, including basketball.
Standard Asphalt Tennis Court
Once the stone base and asphalt has been installed, and the asphalt has cured for 2 weeks, the color coating process begins. The court will be flooded to reveal any low areas in the asphalt surface. A patch binder mix is then applied to fill in the low areas. Two coats of acrylic resurfacing product are next applied over the asphalt to repair any minor imperfections and seal the asphalt surface. Two coats of acrylic court paint are then applied, followed by the playing lines. The pace of ball bounce can be somewhat controlled by adding more or less sand to the acrylic resurfacing product and acrylic court paint. Most new courts will require a four coat color system (two coats of resurfacing product, two coats of color product). You as the court owner can choose from a variety of different colors to match your tastes.
