Pladek is an acrylic painted porous hard tennis court surface that plays at a medium pace. It is a well-established and popular choice that offers value for money for home courts, clubs, parks and schools. The Pladek colour coating is specially formulated to provide improved grip by its use of silica-based additives that are incorporated into the colour coating at the time of manufacture. The Pladek finish reduces the surface friction of the court in a controlled manner, whilst retaining a sound grip for playing in the wet. However it may be slippery when just damp. We offer a range of Pladek colour options for the finished surface.
Tenniturf is a traditional medium to fast sand-filled synthetic grass tennis court that is best suited to the serve and volley tennis player. The pace of the tennis court can be adjusted by varying the amount of sand applied as an infill, and the length of the tufts. We bring all our high-quality consultancy, design and construction skills to Tenniturf tennis courts.
Sporturf is a sand-dressed multi-purpose surface that's suited to tennis, netball and cricket. Even-paced, it's also good for basketball, hockey and five-a-side football. Play takes place on the fibre of the product, so it is ideal for tennis court and multi-purpose area upgrades.
‘Savanna is a very popular top-class, versatile modern sports
surface. Designed by En-Tout-Cas, it is available nowhere else.’
The surface is incredibly soft to play on and responds well to the style of play in progress. This means that for hard-serving players, it provides a fast true surface while for players looking for a gentler experience it performs equally well. We have developed the Savanna court into what is probably the most advanced synthetic tennis surface on the market. Savanna is a soft and durable tennis surface. Its specialist fibre construction gives increased cushioning under foot and consistent ball bounce.
Omniclay is a British-manufactured synthetic clay tennis court surface that looks and plays like traditional clay. Just like clay, it offers a slow to medium surface speed with a ball bounce similar to a traditional clay court. With Omniclay you get everything you would expect from a clay court - except of course the long-term maintenance effort of real clay. However, t does need brushing down between sets. It is best suited to clubs and professionals But if you prefer clay to grass and enjoy the kind of bounce, spin and slide you get from clay, you should check out one of our Omniclay tennis courts.
Matchplay tennis courts are the professional players' choice. They provide the kind of true ball bounce that is best suited to higher levels of playing skill. The excellent ball pace, slip and sliding properties provide a perfect surface on which to play, combined with superior wear resistance. Their excellent UV weather resistant properties make a court best suited for indoor use. This high performance, seamless surface is non-porous, and therefore hygienic and easy to clean.
Under normal circumstances, the construction of a tennis court does not require planning permission in the gardens behind a private house. The planning rules for tennis courts come under and are specifically mentioned in the general rules for outbuildings which state that an enclosure below a height of three metres does not require planning consent.
There are seven main reasons why you would need planning permission for a tennis court.
