TENNIS COURT MAINTENANCE – OUTDOOR

January 29, 2014 admin

By developing a regular maintenance schedule you’ll be able to catch problems before they progress.

Plexipave acrylic tennis courts require very little maintenance as they are very durable. However, by ensuring a clean court you’ll prevent troublesome problems in the future.

 

1.     Regularly sweep the surface to keep it free of dead leaves and debris. Keeping your court clean is especially important before the winter months in areas that expect snow.

2.     Spilled food could lead to mold and mildew. If you do notice mold and mildew, use a mixture of 4 part water and 1 parts bleach to gently scrub the affected area. If stains are visible, gently scrub it off using a mild detergent and a soft bristled brush. You can always clean your acrylic surface with a mild detergent as a precautionary measure once a month.

3.     Check your court monthly for standing water and puddles.  You can do this after a rainstorm or by flooding the court yourself.  If puddles do appear it is a sign of shifting and deterioration in the court. Always make sure the court is dry from rain or cleaning before play begins.

4.     Acrylic courts may attract algae, particularly on the shaded areas of the court. This can carefully be removed by pressure cleaning the surface with a suitable washing machine, a service we are happy to provide.
