Correct maintenance will extend the life of hard tennis courts by more
than 30%, as well as maximising player enjoyment and safety.
Moss and algae are often found on hard court surfaces. This can look unsightly and can create hazardous slippery areas. SMS recommends twice yearly application of di – algae followed by an industrial pressure clean.

To extend the life of your court, hard surfaces should be retextured every 4-5 years. Our SAPCA approved sports premium textured paint greatly improves grip, making the surface safe for players.
