There are so many reasons why we love tennis.
It’s a social sport, with plenty of opportunities for interaction, communication and having fun with family and friends.
It is also a great way of keeping fit: helping us to maintain health, fitness, strength and agility.
Installing a tennis court in your garden is also extremely practical for those with a bit of space to play with. A tennis court essentially consists of the playing surface, and surrounding run-off area.
Minimum dimensions for a recreational size court (playing surface + run-off area) are 17,07 m x 34,77 m. This enables a minimum run-back length of 5,50 m behind the baseline and a side-run of minimum 3,05 m on each side.
What are the key considerations when designing a tennis court?
- Choose your preferred surface: for example synthetic grass or clay. It is important to undertake first a study of the configuration of the ground and the condition of the soil. Synthetic grass (or turf) is often a good choice as it is better for the body when in contact with the ground – reducing the risk of injury – and is easy to maintain.
- Check the dimensions. Whether you are looking to construct a recreational court or planning competitive sport, there are guidelines for sizing including international dimensions to refer to.
- This is important for safety and security – as well as limiting the number of missing tennis balls going astray!
- Installing lighting around the court will enable you to play well into the evening and is also a good security consideration.
