Generally, a hard tennis court requires little Tennis Court Maintenance once it has been built. However, like any surface that gets used regularly well-constructed hard courts does require regular maintenance to help extend the life of the surface.
A good rule of thumb is to walk your court once a month to look for areas that need attention such as mold or mildew, usually in shady or shaded areas (which contain the nutrient required to grow). A simple water rinse with a soft brush and a mild soap or detergent is all that is needed to remove any visible stains. Be careful not to use a pressure washer or other harsh chemicals as these can damage the surface and weaken the bonding between the subbase and the acrylic top coat.
Budget-Friendly Tennis Court Maintenance: Cost-Saving Tips
Regular maintenance will also help to keep the weeds down and the organic growth under control as well as help with the overall condition of your court. A good program includes sweeping or blowing the court from time to time using a specialized broom for tennis courts. It’s a good idea to sweep all walkways leading to your court as well.
Also, check the irrigation system periodically to make sure it is not spraying directly on your court. This can cause watermarks on the surface and can discolor windscreens and other court equipment. If you see any low spots on your court they should be filled in with clay material and leveled.
