Correct maintenance will extend the life of sand filled carpets by more than 30%, as well as maximising player enjoyment and safety
Many clients are now opting to convert their existing hard court to synthetic. Providing your existing hard court is in reasonable condition and level, you can have a synthetic carpet of your choice professionally fitted over the older hard surface.
Carpet overlays are cushioned, safe to play on and give a medium paced game. They will restore consistent play characteristics and have a 10-15 year life span.
These overlay systems can be sand filled or sand dressed. Giving medium fast for sand filled and medium slow for sand dressed.
