Why Choose Asphalt Pavement for Your Tennis Court?

If you are considering building a new tennis court on your property, you have probably heard of all the different materials that can be used for this project. However, asphalt tennis courts have become more popular, and the preferred option for both players and property owners. But what advantages does asphalt bring to your project, and why should you choose it to make your new tennis court? Let's look into it.

A Versatile Material


One of the advantages of choosing asphalt to build your tennis court is the possibility of using it for a wide range of other sports. Since the construction of a tennis court can take a large area of a property, having a court suitable for other sports is a significant advantage for many property owners. Sports like basketball, volleyball, and racquetball are typically played on hard courts, which makes asphalt considerably more versatile than grass, clay, and other materials.


More Durable and Resistant than Other Options


Asphalt is considered one of the most durable materials to use in the construction or resurfacing of courts. It offers great resistance to wear and tear and can be put to use for many years before showing any signs of damage. Additionally, you can use permeable asphalt to make your tennis court. This type of porous material allows water to flow through the surface, avoiding issues like cracks, erosion, and other moisture-related problems.


Easy to Maintain


Maintenance can be incredibly time-consuming and expensive depending on the material you choose. For instance, grass courts need to be watered after each use, mowed at least once a week, and fertilized from time to time. Clay courts also need special attention to ensure they are in optimal condition. Asphalt paving, however, requires very little maintenance over its lifespan. It can be simply cleaned with water on a regular basis, which is not nearly as time-consuming as maintaining other types of courts.


More Affordable than Other Courts


Another great advantage of asphalt courts is that, apart from being more durable and easier to maintain than other materials, they are also considerably cheaper to build. Grass courts, for instance, require thorough preparation of the soil as well as irrigation systems to keep them in good condition. Asphalt pavement installation also requires the soil to be prepared, but it is typically easier and more affordable than building courts made of other materials.
