Some of the Basic Roles of Tennis Court Contractors • Tennis Court Construction – Factors within the tennis court installation procedure include fencing coating and lighting. All this is done according to the customers’ desires. Once the vision is known contractors start on the development. When development begins it must be determined that the location under construction has permeable rock underneath. One of the factors that determine the cost involved in the tennis court instructions is the dimensions of the court. • Tennis Court Maintenance – Once the court is completed ensure that there is an active maintenance system to take care of the court. This is important to provide a clean and conducive playing area. There are two different types of maintained systems: pre-emptive and pro-active. Pre-emptive maintenance prevents the court from long-term damages while the pro-active deals with the contaminants and the earth between the carpet fibres. • Tennis Court Painting – This is mostly done based on the clientless demands. There are special marks applied in order to provide the facility with precise dimensions. The paint applied is normally anti-slip. This minimizes slips and falls thus reducing injuries on the court.

Some of the Basic Roles of Tennis Court Contractors • Tennis Court Surfacing – There are a variety of tennis court surfacing. One example is the unnatural tuff that is installed within the fibres. Before you start anything you should keep your budget in mind because these installation costs do vary. You should also have researched the type of designs you want installed. • Tennis Court Cleaning – The tennis court cleaning strategies depend on the type of court.

Different Types of Tennis Courts • Clay Courts – Clay courts are made of stone compressed shale or brick. Although they are cheap to and easy to install long term maintenance might get quite costly specifically when compared to artificial tennis courts. Although the ball is slower on clay surfaces it usually favours the baseline players and thus encourages a more patient game. Clay courts should be keenly maintained and rolled to maintain its flatness. The water balance should also be adjusted from time to time. • Hard Courts – The main materials used to make hard courts are concrete and asphalt. The courts offer an acrylic surface layer which offers a great bounce response as compared to other court surfaces. Thus the hard courts can have different variations in terms of speed whereby balls move faster than on clay but not as fast as the grass courts. To control the speed at which the ball slows down different amounts of sand are added to the paint. With hard courts the variables can be matched to the style of the athletes. They are hence the most favourable choice due to their cheap maintenance and installation costs.

The grass is grown on very hard packed soil adding an additional variable. Different features affect how the ball behaves. These include the health of the grass how recently you cut the grass and the wear and tear from any recent games. The grass courts favour the serve and volley tennis ball players. The grass courts tend to have the shortest season because they have to be mowed and watered frequently. Because of this they are very expensive to maintain.

Types of Basketball Surfaces • Hardwood – This is the most popular basketball court construction surface and probably the most preferred choice for indoor basketball surfaces. This hard maple flooring is mostly found in NBA stadiums and NCAA arenas. It is usually dense wood made of very fine fibres and tightly packed with grains this keeps dirt and grime away from it. The grains also gel into a very smooth and durable surface which saves on maintenance costs. Hard maple and other hardwoods are highly discouraged from the outdoor courts because the sunlight ends up destroying the natural elements and warping the surface. • Asphalt – This remains t the most common type of basketball court construction surface for outdoor courts. This is because this surface is uniquely designed to withstand the harsh and unfriendly weather conditions. This type of surface is all over as it is what almost all the street courts are made with.

It is also very dangerous because the players are always at risk of getting injured during the game.

Types of Basketball Surfaces • Multi-purpose – This consists of court surfaces made from plastic flooring. To achieve the right finish the court is layered with a slab of concrete and finished off with modular polypropylene molded in squares. The benefits associated with this type of material include better traction good bounce response for the ball and increased safety. However because of the friction there are chances of players suffering from skin abrasions and other small injuries when they fall. This type of finish can also be used for other sports like volleyball and tennis. Multi-purpose surfacing gives you the opportunity to customize the courts. For example the color of the courts can be matched to the team uniforms or other desirable finishes. • Advanced – Some of the multipurpose basketball court construction may come with advanced features tailored to improve responsiveness and enhance performance. For example some of the surface design includes flooring the concrete and the polypropylene surface with a rubber layer in between. This enhances shock absorption and handles the sound dampening. There are also other surfaces which offer polyurethane to enhance durability and to ensure moisture is retained.
