It’s not too late to start on tennis court construction either.
Springtime in the Midwest is the number one time for scheduling tennis court maintenance. This is when the area’s unpredictable weather works in our favor. Spring rain and storms often keep courts too wet for players, yet warmer temperatures let our award-winning team and court products work their magic without fear of freezing. Scheduling your tennis court maintenance now means there will be plenty of time to get your court in tiptop condition for summer matches.
From court surface products to tennis court accessories, such as net posts, nets and windscreens; benches, chairs and shelters; numbers and signage; and net straps and anchors, McConnell and Associates is your one source for tennis court maintenance and construction. The challenges of working with a variety of tennis courts and surfaces require having the know-how that can only come from experience.
What’s involved with tennis court maintenance?
Tennis courts, whether used at high schools, universities, apartment complexes, recreation districts, neighborhood associations, golf communities, country clubs or homeowners’ backyards, require ongoing maintenance, including:
- Removing mold and moss
- Filling cracks
- Crack sealing with geotextile crack repair system
- Color coating and line touch up
- Reconditioning (clay courts)
Keep in mind that regular maintenance helps tennis court surfaces last longer. Depending on use and the quality of the original construction, you can expect an asphalt court to last four to eight years or a concrete court to last 20 years or more.
