Why choose synthetic grass for your tennis court?

About Me
Getting Out There And Getting Active

Hello! Welcome to recreation and sports blog. My name is Anthony and I used to be a couch potato. Every evening when I got home from work, I would pop a microwave meal in the oven and sit down in front of the TV until it was time to go to bed. At the weekend, I would power up my games console and spend hours playing video games. It wasn't a very healthy way to live. All that changed when I happened to attend a local sports club with a friend. He talked me into signing up for some of the activities and I can honestly say it was the best thing I ever did. I decided to start this blog to encourage others to get involved in recreation and sporting activities.


Why choose synthetic grass for your tennis court?

The installation of synthetic grass in tennis courts is becoming increasingly popular, among homeowners as well as with recreational venues and sporting fields. Homeowners prefer tennis courts with minimal maintenance but at the same time providing an almost similar experience to playing on natural grass. Additionally, recreational venues also prefer artificial grass due to its cost and overall convenience. This article outlines some of the benefits that homeowners and recreational venues stand to enjoy by installing synthetic grass on their tennis courts.

Unchanging surface texture

With artificial turf, there's no fluctuation in pile thickness or height. The surface texture remains unchanged, regardless of its regular use or extreme weather conditions. Remember, the type of grass texture installed on a tennis court is quite important considering the myriad movements performed by the tennis player as well as the ball. The guarantee that the texture of the tennis court is the same across the entire playing surface is very important, because it prevents injuries to players.

No fading lines

A key advantage of artificial grass tennis courts is that the lines demarcating the playing court will not smear, shift or fade in any way. With natural grass, this is always a major problem. Artificial grass is design to withstand repeated use or direct exposure to weather elements for longer periods. Given that many calls depend on how distinct the white lines of the tennis court are, synthetic grass promises no fading lines during each game. 

Consistent bounce and ball play

The quality of a game of tennis depends to a great extent on how consistent the ball bounces or plays on the surface. With synthetic grass, you can be assured of a consistent bounce of the call. As a result, players can anticipate how the ball is likely to bounce following every shot, which allows them to devise their unique playing tactic and be ready for each successive shot. Moreover, players are able to keep the ball in play for a longer time, which makes the game exciting and helps to develop their overall skill set and performance. 

No indications of wear and tear

As you are aware, tennis players routinely stop, pivot and shoot with high precision. As such, natural grass is likely to weaken and ultimately wear away. In the long run, imperfections across the playing surface may increase the possibility of players tripping or spraining an ankle. Unlike natural grass, artificial tennis courts are increasingly resolute and show no signs of deterioration commonly witnessed on grass courts. You wouldn't see any bare soil or the grass wearing thin in various spots. 

With the above-mentioned benefits, the decision to install artificial grass on your tennis court should be an easy one.
