A Guide to Tennis Court Infills 

Tennis courts are one of the most popular facilities in the whole of the UK.  They are installed in schools and sports clubs and are used by lots of people for exercise and competitive sports. 

This guide will step you through how infills for tennis courts are installed, the cost, and how to book a consultation if you are interested in having one installed at your home, school, or sports facility. 

Have you been thinking of having a sand infill installed recently and are unsure where to begin or how much it will cost? Look no further and read on for our guide to Tennis Court Infills. 

There are various surface specifications which include:

  • Polymeric rubber 
  • Macadam 
  • Synthetic Grass 

Installation can also be done on other surfaces such as basketball courts, 3G football pitches, netball courts, hockey, and rugby pitches, also athletics such as the long jump and high jump, to name a few. 

Due to sand being installed, maintenance needs to be carried out to keep the tennis court up to a high standard for longer which means fewer maintenance costs to keep it looking as good as new. 

Maintaining Your Tennis Court Infill 

The tennis court infill is a layer of silica sand that is installed within turf fibers to help primarily the performance quality of the surface and also to keep them upright. Over time wear and tear can become visible, and also the infill can become overrun with dirt and other factors, which in time can cause the tennis court to become waterlogged, and it can also lead to flooding if maintenance is left too long. 

The last thing anyone wants is for their tennis court to be unplayable or not to be maintained to the highest standard so it is very much recommended that maintenance is taken seriously. 

Maintenance plans can prevent any kind of issues or wear and tear from happening long before these would become apparent.  The amount of times per year your infill would have to be maintained is hard to say, but your contractor can advise you and can put a plan in place which best suits your budget and surface. 

Benefits of Infill Courts 

  • No watering means these courts are perfect for indoor play as well as outdoor sports facilities 
  • Much more resistant to wear and tear, so standards will be maintained much longer
  • Lower maintenance costs 
  • Controls the pace of the surface 

For these reasons, it is a very popular solution for your sports facility or tennis club.  

Lots of contractors offer all the expertise and advice you need.  If you have been thinking of having a sand infill installed, contact your nearest contractor for more information and costs, advice on which is best for your surface, and time scales as to how long it can take to install.
