Tennis Court Repairs
Whether a tennis court is hard or soft, it’s going to show signs of wear and tear eventually. If you have a hard court, this might mean cracks or worn areas, and if it’s a soft court, this may manifest in depressions or thin spots on the surfacing. If you’re concerned about this, it might be time to get some professional advice on Tennis Court Repairs.
A good option is resurfacing. This is a multi-step process that includes cleaning the entire court surface, patching cracks and filling low spots. It’s recommended that a hard-surfaced tennis court is resurfaced every four to eight years. A geotextile membrane or a layer of stone screenings is first laid on top of the existing surface, followed by a layer of asphalt or reinforced concrete, and finally, an acrylic coating.

Crack repair is a vital step in any tennis court restoration project. ProCorM uses the ARMOR Crack Repair System, which utilizes a knitted fabric that will expand with the crack as it grows. The advantage of this system over other crack fillers is that it doesn’t rely on rubberized elastomeric compounds, which can re-crack under freeze-thaw conditions and stress movement in the base.
Resurfacing is also the ideal time to consider adding a multi-layered cushioning system, especially for older players who experience achy joints after playing. It’s also a great time to address other issues, such as lighting, nets and fence repair or replacement.
