Building a Clay Tennis Court

Clay tennis courts have a certain air of prestige. They're uncommon in the United States, and more frequently seen in Europe which gives them that old-world feel. They're used in the French Open as well as some other tournaments, too, and they provide a much different experience from other court types. If any of the players who frequent your facility have their eye on serious competition in the future, they'll appreciate the opportunity to play and practice on a clay court.

Clay courts today are easier to build and maintain than they were in the past, but it's still not a completely straightforward process. Like any surface, a clay court requires preparation, maintenance, and proper tools and materials.

Here's what you'll need, and what the process involves.

Tennis & Pickleball for Schools and Youth

One of the best things about the game of tennis is that it appeals to all ages. It's a fantastic sport in so many ways — not only does it teach reflexes and agility, it also improves discernment and other mental abilities. And of course, there's the benefit of exercise without the type of danger you'd encounter in contact sports!

Pickleball is a similar game, related to tennis and in fact was invented as an alternative to tennis that is even friendlier to young children. Adults love Pickleball too, though, and many players continue to prefer it throughout their lives.

Do you want to spread interest in tennis or Pickleball throughout the youth in your area? Tennis Court Supply can help!

Tennis Windscreens: the Basics

Tennis Windscreens: the Basics

Windscreens are crucial for a well-designed outdoor tennis court. They provide shade and privacy and block some of the wind while still allowing for ventilation. They also provide a solid background for players to watch the ball, eliminate visual distractions from other areas or courts, and even have a noise-reduction effect. All outdoor tennis courts can benefit from some kind of windscreen.

This article will introduce you to the different types of windscreens we carry at Tennis Court Supply, and how to choose the right one for your court.

Tennis Court Essentials For Summer

Posted by on 6/13/2017 to Tennis

Hot and hard-surfaced tennis courts can be brutal in the summer, but with some preparation, the right tennis court supplies and some practical tips, you can continue to safely and comfortably play your favorite sport throughout the summer.

 

Cabanas and Awnings can provide relief from the sun during breaks and in between games. While playing on an outdoor court in the heat doesn’t seem appealing at first, some shade can make all the difference in a player’s decision to enjoy the outdoors or to stay indoors.


Tennis Court Lighting will keep your courts well-lit for players who want to avoid the sun altogether. Many players find the heat of the day too unbearable and would prefer to play in the cooler evenings. Adequate tennis court lighting will help them enjoy the tennis throughout the summer.

 

Cooler and Cooler Racks are essential for any tennis court in every season. Like with any sport, players should keep themselves hydrated and should have easy access to water to maintain their health and their game.

Just Hit the Ball
Whether you’ve been playing your entire life or just now thinking about learning, tennis is one of the best activities you can do for yourself. Not only can you play it at any age, but it also keeps you healthy physically, mentally, and emotionally.

General Considerations for Tennis Court Lighting

Posted by Tennis Supply Team on 4/12/2015 to Tennis

Lighting is required for indoor tennis courts and outside courts when no natural light is available. It is important because it:

- extends the playing time of a court;

- attracts more coaches and players; and

- achieves an increase in revenue from court hiring fees.

Playing a few games of tennis under the searing sun with no shade in sight can be difficult for tennis players. Running after the balls, baseline rallies and long points can put a strain on the players’ body and fighting spirit.
