Existing outdoor sport facilities in the UK need to be kept well maintained otherwise it will shorten the life of the playing surface and it has been known for a tennis court renovation to be needed within the first three years of a surface being constructed because of lack of proper maintenance.
A sport surface refurbishment job is done when the existing facility needs more than a basic clean and paint because the existing flooring is starting to crack if it is a macadam hard court or contaminated sand on a synthetic turf surfacing specification. It’s important to tackle these issues as soon as possible to prevent them from getting worse and leading to the flooring needing a complete resurface.
Renovating Sports Surfaces
When synthetic turf tennis courts get contaminated the dirty sand infill needs to be extracted and replaced with a new layer because otherwise porosity is affected on the court and the surface starts to get waterlogged.
This problem occurs when the court isn’t regularly brushed and cleaned so the sand infill gets compacted and contaminated with moss and algae, so it’s important to carry out regular maintenance on these surfaces. The process of completely replacing the sand infill is called rejuvenation and involves extracting the dirty sand and putting in a clean application which creates much better playing qualities and a safe environment.
On hard surfaces tennis court renovation is needed where the surfacing is starting to crack and develop fretting. The preferred method of repairing these areas is by installing a 2mm emerald stone mixed with polyurethane resin because this fills in the cracks well and when painted looks great.
A new coating of anti slip acrylic paint can then be applied to the surface to enhance the performance qualities and create a safer surface for players.

Tennis Court Renovation Costs
The costs of the professional tennis court renovation depend on the extent of repairs needed and obviously the sizes, dimensions and current state of the sports surfacing plays a factor into the costs and prices to the works being carried out but quotes can easily be submitted if you send in some existing photos and area size. Something you need to bear in mind with the tennis court repair and painting costs is that the cheapest price isn’t always the best solution and you should always look at ‘best value’ because why spend thousands on renovating the existing facility and have this done again in a few years time. You need to check that the renovation includes a thorough professional clean, repair, binder coat installed and non slip paint applied with line marking. We can even create a design with multi use sports line marking to turn your tennis court into an all purpose facility which can be used for other games and activities.
In this video above it outlines one of our recent projects which involved renovating a tennis court surface in Surrey. The macadam surfacing had become worn out and very dirty due to a lack of proper care, so we carried out a thorough clean with a pressure washer and applied a new coating of anti slip paint in a green two tone design with white line markings.

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!
Sports Facility Equipment
Lots of our clients choose to have extra features added onto tennis courts to make them more efficient. One of the most common products is fencing which is available in a number of designs and heights. This can be designed and fitted to suit the correct tennis surface dimensions whatever the size of your court. The chain link option is perfect for many recreational standard pitches, but a super rebound specification is also available as a more robust product. If you are a club wanting to create a professional standard court which gets a lot of use, the super rebound fence would be ideal for you.
Specialist tennis floodlighting is also available if you want to extend the usage hours of your facility. These can be fitted in many different styles and they allow you to carry on using the area after daylight hours. This is great for anyone who wants to rent out their court in the evenings for use by other teams and clubs to generate some extra income.
