Synthetic Grass Tennis Courts

 

Infill Levels

 

The infill level of your court will become low and will constantly suffer from the layer of sand infill compacting and the carpet fibres folding over. It is therefore important to lift and open up the carpet fibres and decompact the sand infill. Regular maintenance helps keep the carpet pile upright and separate the infill clean and free draining and the infill at the correct levels of 1-2mm beneath the upper tip of the carpet fibres.

Infill levels can get dispersed to the outer edges of the playing area. Smart Sport Surfaces maintenance procedure ensures the even distribution of infill across the entire court.

We provide maintenance and installation solutions across the South and South East of England, including Brighton, Greater London, Kent, East Sussex, West Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey, and Berkshire.

Infill Contamination

 

Sand being a natural fibre will trap debris such ball fluff, broken up leaves and other airborne debris within the void space between the sand particles which will lead to a hard playing surface and poor drainage. This will affect the playing surface and will promote establishment of moss and algae.

Regular Maintenance and Deep Cleaning

 

Synthetic grass tennis courts benefit from regular maintenance which involves using a triangular drag brush towed using a mini tractor.

 

Depending on court usage a Deep Clean either yearly, biannual, triannual or quarterly is advisable. Smart Sport Surface Intensive Deep Clean will decompact the existing infill, to a greater depth than regular drag brushing will achieve, lifts it, removes a degree of contamination from the infill, prior to redistributing evenly over the court. During the process the carpet fibres are lifted and separated and dead moss is removed. Top up infill is then applied, if required.

Moss and Algae Treatment

 

Moss and algae can be a persistent problem especially if your court is surrounded by trees. It therefore may be necessary to treat any moss and algae 14 to 21 days before carrying out a deep clean on your court. By doing this we make sure any moss or algae is properly killed – our deep cleaning and power grooming methods will do the rest.
