Tennis Court Dimensions

Contact Us

In the UK tennis court dimensions can vary and there is no standard size for every facility, however the game line markings are usually applied to the same sizes at 10.97 width x 23.77m length. We are able to build these facilities in a number of designs to suit what you need.

You can have a facility constructed in dimensions which suit the requirements of your project, whether it is for a school, sports club, leisure centre or even a residential tennis surface for your home. There are however, recommended dimensions which most sport surfacing contractors use as a guideline when building a tennis facility, these are:

Domestic Tennis Surface Dimensions with Runoff Surfacing – 16.5m x 33.5m
LTA Minimum Tennis Court Dimensions with Runoff Surfacing – 17.07m x 34.77m
LTA Championship Tennis Court Size with Runoff Surfacing – 18.29m x 36.57m

We are able to install facilities in these various sizes to suit each different client. Feel free to contact us and let us know if you are interested in having one of these surfaces built. Our team have worked with many professional clubs, schools and individuals to offer a range of requirements.

Sports Facility Specifications

These sizes are given as an outline and can be altered depending on the specifications, budgets and requirements of each organisation and project. A good quality facility must be designed and installed properly to ensure good performance characteristics as well as maintaining the safety of the players to prevent injury. Depending on how the area will be used, you could choose from different specifications for either recreational or professional use.

In many cases schools could choose to have a smaller area built to reduce costs as it may only be used to PE lessons and practise games. The bigger, professional standard courts are usually installed at clubs where competitive matches take place. If you are thinking about installing a surface like this, don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss the project further. Let us know what your budget it and we’ll offer a quote which is affordable for you.

Tennis Courts Size

The sports facilities can be installed at these tennis court sizes in a variety of different surfacing types in the UK including porous macadam, polymeric rubber and artificial grass. Professional tennis line marking can also be applied to these surfaces to ensure that game scoring is clear and accurate. It is vital to make sure that your sports facility is installed by a specialist sports surfacing company and that the finished product and tennis court dimensions meet all the performance and safety accreditations set out by the relevant governing bodies of LTA, ITF and SAPCA.

We have completed many projects for various clients including schools and leisure centres in the UK.

Woodhouse grove school

Soft Surfaces won a competitive tender to supply and install a new 6528 m² all weather pitch, marked for football, rugby union and three 5-a-side pitches. There is storage at one end for posts and equipment and the complex is enclosed by a 3m high rebound fence. Lighting columns were erected along the perimeter, and lighting bollards to the access path. A large-scale earthworks scheme was undertaken to create a plateau some 900mm above the 100-year flood level in order to accommodate the pitch. SS worked over weekends and during the normal Christmas shutdown to minimise delays.

AFC Bournemouth

When AFC Bournemouth wanted to create a new training surface, we looked into the various options. We discussed the performance and playing characteristics of a variety of surfaces. In the summer, we chose a 3G surface (Rhino Turf VT40) which was supplied and installed by Soft Surfaces Ltd. We chose the Rebounce shock-pad to compliment the VT40 surface, as it met the performance, quality and the most natural appearance – so much more realistic in looks, feel and performance than other synthetic surfaces. We have found Soft Surfaces to be very professional and easy to deal and work with. 

Banister Primary School

We believe we received good value for money by opting to use Soft Surfaces and would like to thank the team for making it painless and stress-free installation experience. We were particularly impressed with the degree of flexibility your exercised as we wanted to change the perimeter area. It’s also important that I state how impressed we were with the cleanliness and tidiness of the work; the site was spotless upon completion. Likewise, the after service has been good and we appreciate that you’ve stayed in touch to make sure we were pleased with the end product. In summary i would be happy to reccomend Soft Surfaces without hesitation or reservation; it was a pleasure doing business with you!

Activity For All

Soft Surfaces came to run a brief presentation on the advantages of their product and why he felt that this was best value and straight away we understood what we was getting as a product, service and installation. I am more than happy with how the project ran with it being delivered ontime, within budget and now have a great football artificial 3G surface. I would strongly recommend dealing with James Dooley at Soft Surfaces who will talk you through the various costs, specifications and finer details because would definitely like to point out that the cheapest is not always the best value. Massive thank you to the team for providing us now with a thriving new facility!

Golborne High School

I would like to express my thanks to all the staff at Soft Surfaces Ltd for helping our school in the upgrade of our MUGA flooring. We were experiencing serious problems with contaminated sand causing flooding and making the surface dangerous under foot. You undertook a site visit and carried out an infill contamination assessment to investigate the problems. This identified that the sand infill needed replacing to bring the facility back to its correct playing characteristics and porous again. The PE staff in school are extremely impressed with the impact of the work undertaken and have commented that it has made a significant improvement to the MUGA surface. I would certainly recommend Soft Surfaces!
