Correct maintenance will extend the life of Grey Green Courts by more
than 30%, as well as maximising player enjoyment and safety.
Grey Green courts are bitumen or resin bound court surfaces with a top dressing of shale/grit which is evenly spread and partly adhered to the surface.
A traditional court surface, Grey Green courts give a medium fast game with a low ball bounce.
As grit migrates over time, they will require additional top dressing. After a gentle jet wash and chemical treatment Sports Maintenance Services would refresh the grit levels and apply additional resin if needed. Repairs would also be carried out if required.
