Asphalt Tennis Court Paving in Nashville TN

asphalt tennis courts

In tennis, there are a couple of different bases to construct the court, but the most popular is asphalt. An asphalt laid court is referred to as a "hard court" and chosen for its durability and customization. Tennis played on these courts are played medium-fast because the asphalt absorbs very little energy. The ball will bounce high and move quickly allowing players an opportunity to apply different spins. If owners are interested in controlling the ball speed, applying more coats of acrylic resurfacing and paint can help.

The asphalt base used in the application is patched, sealed, and painted using an acrylic court surfacing system. It offers a lot of flexibility for customization and owners can implement any colorway they see fit. An asphalt court is built with 4" to 6" compacted rock. The most commonly used is limestone. On top is a 1" asphalt layer followed by an acrylic coat. Special attention is made to ensure the surface is flat. After curing the pavement, the court will be flooded to reveal any low spots that might hinder the players. If low spots are detected, a binder is used to level out the surface.
