The application of tennis court painting is popular in the UK as it provides non slip characteristics which enable the courts to be used in all weather conditions while still being safe for players. Professional tennis line markings can also be applied to the surface to ensure accurate scoring and good quality game play. Different types of coatings including porous acrylic paint and polyurethane paint are used for this process; the type of paint used depends on the specification of your tennis court surface. Once applied to a macadam or polymeric rubber sports surface, the paint system is fully porous and SUDS compliant, meaning that water can drain through it reducing the risk of waterlogging and flooding on the sports facility.

Slip Resistant Paint
The slip resistance of the tennis court painting coats is achieved by mixing sand and aluminium oxide with the porous acrylic paint to combat the slipperiness of the surface and give players more grip when moving around the court. When having a slip resistant coating applied to your tennis surface, it is important that you choose a specialist sport surfacing contractor and to ensure that the tennis courts paint coatings meet the anti slip TRRL 55 standards outlined by the LTA governing body as well as SAPCA for safety qualities. This will make certain that your facility keeps players safe and reduces the risk of injury while still providing professional performance characteristics.
Tennis Courts Colour Coating Costs
The costs and prices involved in applying tennis court colour coatings can vary depending on a range of factors including the dimensions and specification of your tennis surface, the location of your organisation and the type and colour of paint you require. Anti slip colour coatings can be applied to MUGAs and other sports surfaces including netball facilities at a number of establishments across the UK including schools, colleges, universities, leisure centres and sports clubs and a quote can be tailored to meet the requirements of each individual organisation.
It is important to keep your macadam surfacing well maintained through regular brushing and pressure washing to ensure that it stays in the best condition for as long as possible. This will help to maintain good performance and playing characteristics for the surface, as well as keeping the area safe and cutting costs by reducing the need for extra repairs and repainting in the future.
Cleaning and Repainting
Over time and without correct maintenance work, sport surfaces can become contaminated and damaged. This leads to a decline in the performance qualities and can make the facility unsafe for use. We recently carried out a project to thoroughly clean and repaint a sports court which could not be used as it was heavily contaminated with moss. In order to remove the moss, our team cleaned the macadam court with a pressure washer and specialist tennis court cleaning solution to blast away the dirt.
Once the area had been thoroughly cleaned, we then applied a new coating of acrylic non slip paint with green for the playing area and red around the perimeter for the runoff. Clear tennis line markings were painted in white to give an accurate and clear playing surface.

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.

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!

The tennis court painting costs can also vary depending on the type and amount of paint used. It’s important to make sure that you do checks on the specialist contractors to make sure they have been trading over 10 years, have decent credit facility and have several case studies of similar projects. This is because you want to make sure you are not using a tennis court construction company who might not be here in 6 months time and all warranties / guarantee is out of the window.
