If your tennis court gets contaminated from moss and algae it can become slippery and unsafe as well as making the whole facility look unattractive. Having a Moss Court Pro treatment applied to your hard court sports surface can prevent the growth of moss and algae and extend the life expectancy of the whole surface. It’s important to take a proactive approach to maintaining your macadam or polymeric rubber tennis court so that it performs to its full potential and remains safe for those who use it.
Just get in touch with our team if you’d like to discuss these services in more detail, and to enquire about the costs. One of our experts would be happy to give you more information and answer any questions you have.
Tennis Court Cleaning Procedure
Before we apply a Moss Court Pro treatment to an outdoor sports surface, it’s important to carry out a thorough tennis court cleaning procedure to remove existing dirt and debris. This process involves jet washing and brushing the surface using a specialist tennis court cleaning solution which bonds with dirt and lifts it away from the court. Having this type of maintenance done on a regular basis will help prevent natural matter life leaves and mud from getting stuck within the pores of the court surface.
If the pores do get blocked up with decaying dirt, this prevents water from draining through and therefore the tennis court can become flooded and unusable in wet weather. It’s important to make sure an experienced contractor carries out the cleaning using the correct chemicals to make sure that a thorough clean is done and there is no debris left on the surface.
Tennis Surface Moss Removal
When the tennis court surface has been properly cleaned with the specialist solution, the moss treatment can take place. This professional moss and algae treatment chemical contains active ingredients such as quaternary ammonium chloride and makes up a concentrated biocide. This enables the Moss Court Pro solution to control the growth of moss, algae, bacteria and lichens on the hard court sports surfacing. By having this you reduce the chance of the surfacing becoming blocked up and losing its porosity. This means it will be able to keep draining water and it won’t become flooded in wet weather.
The chemical moss treatment is mixed with water and can be applied as a spray or using a brush to blast or scrub away bacteria from the court and prevent it from developing into other contaminations like moss and algae. When using the Moss Court Pro chemical solution it’s important to avoid excess spray or runoff onto lawns or areas of grass and plants as it can cause some damage to these natural surfaces.

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.
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.

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!

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!
