Tennis Courts

Background

Grass courts were originally among the most common tennis surfaces, but are now rare -- primarily due to the introduction of newer and more durable economically feasible surfaces.  In addition grass has a much higher maintenance costs and somewhat limited geographic and seasonal compatibility -- as grass must be watered, cut, manicured and rolled daily, all this under ideal conditions... plus fresh lines must be painted on the court prior to each use.  In addition, a grass court must be allowed a period to “rest” after each use in order to naturally regenerate worn areas of play on the court, which can not be rushed.  Like any living organism, in addition to vital hydration, grass must have ample natural sun light plus proper nutrition including fertilizers.  Grass understandably takes more care and time to dry after watering or rain than self draining artificial All Weather. There is no disagreement that the classic grass surface is stunningly beautiful and provides the most highly desired “fast” game surface -- it is the most compatible for the human body in part due to grass’ unique shock absorbing comfort characteristics.  All other “alternative” court surfaces today attempt to replicate grass’ unique attributes at a more manageable cost with varying degrees of success depending on use and composition surfaces chosen.  For a more extensive discussion of the skills most advantageous on grass court, see grass-court specialist . Currently, England's Wimbledon is the only Grand Slam event played on grass.  The need for grass courts is still in demand among both professionals and serious non-professional players.

Indoor courts

Indoor wooden courts date back to the dawn of Tennis, today, All Weather courts are very common indoors. Slower, higher bouncing rubberized surfaces are used for a cushioned feel. Clay courts too are installed indoors generally with underground watering systems. When tennis began its American introduction, Barnstorming professionals played on canvas laid over wooden basketball courts up to the 1960s. For information about the original indoor tennis and tennis courts see real tennis and history of tennis.
Supreme Kourts® constructs a wide variety of All Weather acrylic color-coated tennis and basketball courts, including shock-absorbing cushion surfaces such as Cushion Extreme and Clay Tech by Lee Tennis.

Our bocce and pickle-ballcourts are built with the same precision as our tennis courts. All boccecourts are not the same, our courts are built to last and offer professional and recreational player a quality level of play. We use the proven Har-Tru tennis clay for the perfect surface court. Har-Tru is rapidly becoming the preferred surface among expert bocce players. We also offer synthetic grass over concrete or crushed stone base for less maintenance and year round play. Because bocce courts are built flat and level they tend to hold water after rain storms. Our courts have full drain systems to insure quick play after any rain. Heavy 6" x 6" treated wood edging stays straight, level and does not rot. To complete your court we will custom build ball racks, scoreboards and seating areas. Have your family and friends over for a barbecue, a few drinks and a good game of bocce. All ages can play and everyone will enjoy the prospects of a new memorable family tradition.

Supreme Kourts® is dedicated to manufacturing the highest quality All-Weather athletic court surfaces available that are 100% environmentally compatible and dedicated to strict quality control plus sensitive to budgets, schedules and surrounding landscapes.

VARIOUS COURT SURFACE BACKGROUND INFORMATION

The dimensions of a tennis court

Tennis is played on a rectangular flat surface, usually of grass, clay, concrete (hard court) or a synthetic suspended court. The dimensions of a tennis court are defined and regulated by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) governing body and are written down in the annual 'Rules of Tennis' document.[1] The court is 23.78 meters (78 feet) long, 10.97 meters (36 feet) wide. Its width is 8.23 meters (27 feet) for singles matches and 10.97 meters (36 feet) for doubles matches. The service line is 6.40 meters (21 feet) from the net. Additional clear space around the court is needed in order for players to reach overrun balls for a total of 18.3 meters (60 feet) wide and 36.7 meters (120 feet) long. A net is stretched across the full width of the court, parallel with the baselines, dividing it into two equal ends. The net is 1.07 meters (3 feet 6 inches) high at the posts, and 0.914 meters (3 feet) high in the center. The net posts are 3 feet (0.914 m) outside the doubles court on each side or, for a singles net, 3 feet (0.914 m) outside the singles court on each side.
 

Installation Orientation

A North/South orientation is generally desirable for outdoor courts to avoid background glare at dawn or dusk. Orientation should also take into consideration other structures and features on the site, such as neighboring property, vehicle and pedestrian traffic, and prevailing winds. Topography of the site and efficient site utilization should be considered as well.
