Key Features to Consider Before Building an Indoor Residential Tennis Court
6 months ago
If you love tennis, you may want to bring the game indoors for all-year play. However, before constructing a residential indoor tennis court, you should consider several factors. This guide will help you through the key elements to ensure that you create an excellent tennis court that fulfills all your sport needs.
Determine If You Have Sufficient Space for Your Residential Indoor Tennis Court
A residential indoor tennis court requires sufficient space. You need enough floor area for the court and adequate height to allow the ball to bounce.
According to the International Tennis Federation (ITF), the dimensions of an indoor court are 78 ft. x 36 ft. You also need an extra 12 ft. on each side between the court and the back screen. It’s also important to note that indoor courts usually tend to be smaller overall when compared to the 60 ft. x 120 ft. standard court sizes.
The overhead space above the net's height should be at least 40 ft. The overhead height is critical because players may hit the ceiling when taking an overhead shot.
Select Your Surfacing Material
The material you choose for your residential indoor tennis court affects the quality and safety of the game, maintenance costs and its durability. Remember that you need an approved contractor to install the surfacing material correctly. Furthermore, the contractor has to install a concrete subfloor and a 1.5 mm shock and sound attenuating rubber layer to support the final finish.
Sport Court offers Response HG™. This championship-tested and approved material is suitable for tennis at any level. You can also select the finish in different colors, including green, popular for tennis courts.
This surfacing material is durable and comes with a 15-year limited warranty and low maintenance costs. In addition, the Patented Lateral Forgiveness™ technology reduces joint fatigue, while the SportGuard™ surface technology extends the life of your indoor tennis court.
The material is also water-resistant, which helps the tennis surface resist water damage. In addition, Sport Court Las Vegas is an approved contractor. So you can rest easy knowing that you'll get quality tennis flooring and installation.
Get the Right Permits and Approvals
Before building your residential indoor tennis court, visit your local authorities' website to discover the permits and approvals you need for the construction process to begin. Remember also to finalize all paperwork with your contractor before construction begins.
