Introduction: Refurbishing a tennis court is a significant investment to enhance playability, safety, and aesthetic appeal. Implementing proper maintenance practices is essential to maximise the benefits of your newly refurbished tennis court and extend its lifespan. Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to maintain and care for your tennis court post-refurbishment:

  1. Regular Cleaning Routine: Establish a routine cleaning schedule to remove debris, dirt, and organic matter from the court surface. Use a gentle brush or leaf blower to sweep away leaves and debris, then wash the court with a mild detergent and water solution to remove stubborn stains and grime.
  2. Inspect and Repair Surface Damage: Regularly inspect the court surface for signs of wear, cracks, or surface damage. Promptly repair any minor cracks or chips using appropriate patching materials recommended by your tennis court installer or maintenance professional. Addressing issues early prevents them from escalating and preserves the court’s integrity.
  3. Maintain Proper Drainage: Ensure the court’s drainage system remains clear and functional. Clear debris from drainage channels and inspect them periodically to prevent water buildup, damaging the court surface over time and affecting playability.
  4. Resurface as Needed: Monitor the condition of the court surface and plan for periodic resurfacing based on usage and environmental factors. Resurfacing helps maintain a smooth, level playing surface, improves traction, and extends the court’s life. Consult with tennis court professionals to determine the optimal resurfacing schedule for your court.
  5. Protect Against Weather Elements: During inclement weather, cover the tennis court with a weatherproof cover or tarp to protect it from excessive moisture, UV exposure, and debris. This preventive measure helps preserve the court surface and prolongs its durability.
  6. Use Proper Equipment and Footwear: Encourage players to use appropriate tennis shoes with non-marking soles to prevent damage to the court surface. Avoid dragging heavy equipment or sharp objects across the court, as these can cause scratches or gouges that compromise the playing surface.
  7. Perform Seasonal Maintenance: Adjust your maintenance practices based on seasonal changes. For example, in colder climates, take precautions to protect the court from frost or ice damage. In warmer climates, ensure adequate hydration and sun protection to maintain the court’s resilience against heat and UV rays.
  8. Consult Professional Maintenance Services: Regularly enlist the services of professional tennis court maintenance providers to conduct comprehensive inspections and maintenance tasks. These professionals have the expertise and specialised equipment to identify potential issues early and implement effective solutions.
  9. Educate Players and Staff: Educate players, coaches, and staff members about the importance of proper court maintenance and care. Encourage everyone to respect the court rules and guidelines to minimise wear and preserve its quality for prolonged enjoyment.
  10. Keep Records and Track Maintenance: Maintain detailed records of all maintenance activities, including cleaning schedules, repairs, and resurfacing dates. Tracking these efforts helps you maintain the court’s condition proactively and ensures compliance with warranty and maintenance requirements.


Conclusion: Proper maintenance practices are crucial for preserving the quality and functionality of a newly refurbished tennis court. By implementing regular cleaning routines, conducting timely repairs, and engaging professional maintenance services, you can protect your investment and provide tennis enthusiasts with a safe, high-performance playing surface.


Commit to these maintenance guidelines to ensure your tennis court remains in top condition, promoting years of enjoyment and competitive play. Embrace proactive care to uphold the standards of excellence expected from a well-maintained tennis facility.
