The game of tennis is one of the great past-times in sports history. From its inception a little over 100 years ago, the game has expanded to become one of the most popular in the world through well-known Grand Slam tournaments, the most famous of which being Wimbledon.

But now, you don’t have to wait for the tournaments to roll around each year to enjoy the game. Backyard tennis courts are becoming more popular and commonplace thanks to their affordability and ease of installation.

Important Considerations For Your Court
Having a tennis court installed in your backyard is a great way to spend time with the family while staying both physically and mentally fit. And now you have plenty of choices for the type of court you want installed too. Let’s take a look at all you’ll need to consider before you give Impressive Courts the “green-light” on your installation.

Size of the Court
The most important thing you’ll need to consider with regard to backyard tennis courts is the size of the court you want. This will largely depend on the size you have available in your yard. While you may think you have a pretty sizeable lawn already, a tennis court will need a substantial amount of space that might not be available for most. Regulation tennis courts require roughly 72,00 sq. ft of space, spanning a length of 120 ft and a width of 60 ft. However, with smaller blocks, it’s becoming more and more popular to install a small court.

Additional Installations Needed
Even if you have close to the space needed, there’s still the important aspect of understanding that your tennis court will require professional installation beyond just a simple outline of the tennis grid. You’ll need to engage experts like Impressive Courts which has been building backyard tennis courts for more than 17 years. They can offer you valuable insights that you might not have thought about yet. Like the type of surface you want, the size of the court, the toughest nets available and even the council approvals you’ll need.

Choosing A Grass Court
One thing to consider is the right type of synthetic turf that you might need for its surface. You really want a turf that is responsive to play on, can withstand high ball impact and repeated foot traffic, along with one that can cope with strong exposure to sunlight with UV protection. It will also need minimal maintenance. Typically, you’ll want a tennis court surface that is 10-25mm in height with a density of 7,600 – 10,000 denier. A great option is to pop into the Impressive Turf showroom and see and feel the quality of the turfs for yourself.

Where to Start
Even if you have decided on your court size, the type of turf you want to use on its surface and your permits are ready to go, it’s incredibly important to only use a reputable supplier. Why? Well, they will come with not only experience but can also take care of the excavation, base work, fencing, and lighting and they will also supply and install your chosen synthetic turf. Not only that, a team like Impressive Courts also offer a 10-year manufacturer warranty as well.
