Tennis court renovation maintenance

Earthworks:

For the construction of a court, whatever the surface chosen, we will have to do an earthwork and perhaps a field study. The earthwork is done using a backhoe to solidify and level the ground.
We remove any roots or stones likely to interfere with the flatness of the ground.
We position a bidime on the whole earthwork to separate the topsoil from the gravel.
Depending on the slope of your soil, a drainage will be carried out to evacuate the rainwater towards a collector which will avoid the accumulation of water on your land.
When the earthwork is finished, we spread the gravel over the whole of the ground, compacting it with a roller. We rest a layer of gravel on it, which keeps the ground as flat as possible. same level point on the whole earthwork.

Construction of a porous concrete tennis court.

Composed of a honeycomb concrete structure, these permeable and ventilated coverings allow maximum annual use of tennis courts. As soon as the rain stops, this surface dries very quickly. Porous concrete being a perfectly stable material, the longevity of our tennis courts is exceptional whatever the weather conditions, including snow or salt.
Coated with a non-slip elastomer paint:
the annual maintenance is limited to high pressure washing of the courts by applying a special anti-foam tennis.
Ask us for advice we will be happy to recommend the best solution for the durability of your court.

The different colors are chosen by the customer according to their desires and tastes.

The advantages of a porous concrete surface are:

  • the price, the cheapest of all surfaces
  • the most resistant over time
  • one of the easiest to implement
  • one of the fastest to implement
  • requires the least maintenance
  • 5-year warranty against weather and over time.

Once the earthworks have been completed, we leave free space around the edge of the earthworks to install the fence posts.
We place angles on the gravel to pour the concrete in section by putting joints around the sections to evacuate the water on the court.
Steels will be added before pouring the concrete to solidify the poured concrete. The porous concrete will be spread between the angles with roller to have the flattest possible floor.
Once the concrete has been poured, you have to wait a month before walking on it and being able to use it.

Once the drying time has passed, you must blow the court or wash it to remove all the gravel and leaves with a view to applying the various products before painting, in order to have the cleanest possible surface.

Subsequently, the resin, synthetic grass or clay can be placed on it, just a specific preparation of the support just according to your tennis desires.

Renovation of a porous concrete tennis court.

Over time, the terrain tends to move, causing sectional shifts or the appearance of cracks.

We sand the slab offsets using a diamond disc sander to reduce the difference in height so that the player cannot get their feet on it and fall.
Subsequently the field is washed using a high pressure cleaner with a rotating nozzle which allows it to tackle closely weeds and mosses, and to clear all the gravel on the tennis court.

We apply a special anti-foam tennis to avoid the growth of mosses and weeds, spray on the whole of the support it will stop and protect the court.

We apply a fixative on the surface so that the paint hangs on the support. The paint is sprayed with an airless special tennis high pressure pump in three crossed layers and an additional one where the player plays the most on the court. Finally we carry out the FFT standard plots.

Construction of a synthetic grass tennis court.

A pleasant playing surface, flexibility and ball rebound, controlled gliding.
The range of coatings that we offer allows you to respond to all requests and all uses. Indoors and outdoors, it must be applied on a support (porous concrete, coated …)
Freestanding, it will not crack. Its fibers of different colors that we offer do not fear the weather.
It is a coating perfectly well suited to the rehabilitation of existing tennis courts.
In addition, all tennis covers are purchased in France and we are happy to guarantee a 100% French cost.

Like every new construction, after studying the soil and carrying out the earthwork, the synthetic turf must be laid on a completely flat surface.

It can be laid on porous concrete, on asphalt, on a layer of gravel.
Made up of two families (polypropylene or polyethylene fiber), it will be covered with sand called silica, which provides a natural appearance on the grass by promoting slow rebounds.
According to each desire of the player, different types of grass exist according to their density, the height of the different fibers. It is resistant to all types of climate with its sealing of the support. Playable in all weathers, this process provides sensations equivalent to clay, better qualities of support, rotations and gliding and optimal playing comfort. The synthetic grass protects the joints as well as the muscles over time by providing a slower playing surface.
Maintenance over time requires readjusting the sand and spreading it where it is lacking.

If this one is very degraded, it is enough to unstick it from its support, to reinstall another if you wish or change the nature of the court surface if you don’t like the grass.
It all depends on the base on which the grass rests if it has not moved it is possible to rest a grass.

Construction of a clay tennis court.

Like every construction, after the study of soil and the earthwork carried out, on which rests on the drainage 1 layer of about 18cm of gravel on the top, they are finely crushed to prevent the passage of water. Rest on this clinker 7cm from the burning of coke coal.
Over time, less and less a factory makes coal, it is replaced by pozzolan, a volcanic rock.
Both materials have small cavities and retain water that falls on the ground to maintain its flexibility.

We spread the earth on the surface of the court, in 1 layer of limestone of 6 cm. Several types of earth exist with different colors, ask advice from our technicians we will be happy to offer you the different shades of clay.

In the French tradition of clay tennis courts using limestone from the Oise.
Finally rests a layer of pillaged bricks from 2 to 3cm this surface layer allows both good quality and good visibility for spectators.

Construction of a synthetic resin tennis court.

Products for the construction of tennis courts, which widen the gap with their predecessors.
Applied on bituminous coated supports, very rich in plastic materials, they have an elasticity which absorbs the effects of the expansion of the support.
Coating cast in successive layers, our resins form a single piece and a perfectly regular surface. We offer a comfort option which perfectly improves shock absorption.
Very important for your supports as well as your joints which suffer less than porous concrete.

Implementation

Like every court, it requires a soil study to know if the nature of the soil will allow it to resist over time.
When the earthwork is finished, the resin can rest on porous concrete by plugging the front pores, on asphalt or bitumen hot-laid by technicians specialized in road works.
The bituminous mix is ​​poured over thick gravel at least seven centimeters thick
A rubber mat is then placed on the bituminous mix. The resin is then applied using a 3-layer rubber squeegee after the fixer.

  • 1 base coat
  • 1 layer of mass
  • 1 top coat

Tracking of handmade layouts in two layers with a special tennis acrylic paint to the FFT standard.

Renovation of a synthetic resin tennis court.

Even if the soil study and compaction were done in the rules of the art, it nevertheless happens over time that faults appear due to subsidence of land causing puddles (area where the rain stagnates and does not drain away step) Bumps or moles are formed on the surface of the court either by the accumulation of gas, or by tree roots present around the court.
Cracks attest to a landslide, all are indicative of a defect in the construction of a tennis court. Either its location was badly chosen, or the construction was badly carried out. The crack spacing must first be monitored to determine the evolution of the slip. If the state of the court allows it, repairs can be undertaken.
We saw the bitumen around the moles or we sand them according to their importance to extract the roots or release the gases.
The preparatory work finished, we apply an anti-foam to prevent the growth of mosses and weeds on the court.
We spray a fixative so that the resin hangs on the support. To finish we apply the resin using a rubber squeegee, application in three layers, followed by the lines made by hand.
