LTA full size 36.58m Championship (120ft) x 18.20m (60ft)
Methods of construction
will depend on site conditions and the nature of the underlying
soil, sandy soils will in general require less foundation stone
than a clay soil. This will in turn have an effect on cost. Tennis
courts built on a reasonably level site will be easier and more
cost effective to construct than courts built on sloping sites.
Most new tennis
courts in the rear of a private garden will not require planning
permission, however there are a number of exceptions so please
refer to our planning
outdoor court should preferably be positioned with its length
running as near as possible north-south. This avoids looking directly
into the sun during the early morning and evening periods. However
site constrictions will often mean this cannot be achieved.
Most courts can be
built and ready for play in a 3-4 week period, however in the
case of colour coated courts a period of at least 4 weeks should
be allowed after surfacing before the colour coating is applied.
During this time the court will be fully functional, as we will
have applied temporary lines.
