How Much Room for a Tennis Court?

The amount of space needed for a tennis court can vary depending on several factors, including the type of court, its purpose, and whether it will include additional amenities like seating areas, fencing, or lighting. However, some standard dimensions can serve as a general guide.

A standard regulation singles tennis court measures 78 feet long and 27 feet wide, while a doubles court is 78 feet long and 36 feet wide. These measurements are for the playing area and do not include space for drainage, fencing, or walking areas around the court.

For a comfortable playing environment and to accommodate all these additional elements, consider a total area of at least 120 feet by 60 feet. This allows for:
- 21 feet of space behind each baseline (making the length 120 feet)
- 12 feet of space on each side of the court (making the width 60 feet for a doubles court)

When designing and installing your court, AG Sports Surfaces will work with you to ensure that the space you have meets your needs and maximizes your court's functionality.

How Much Does a Tennis Court Cost?

The cost of installing a tennis court can vary significantly based on various factors, such as the type of surface material, location, labor costs, and any additional amenities like lighting, fencing, or a drainage system. Here are some ballpark figures to give you an idea of what different types of courts might cost:

- Asphalt Hard Courts: $50,000 to $80,000
- Clay Courts: $25,000 to $60,000
- Grass Courts: $15,000 to $45,000
- Synthetic Courts: $35,000 to $100,000

These are just starting points, and the costs can fluctuate depending on the specifics of your project. For instance, installing a high-end cushioned acrylic hard court with professional-grade lighting and fencing can quickly push costs upwards of $100,000.

What are the different kinds of tennis courts, and what are the pros and cons?

Asphalt Tennis Courts vs. Concrete Tennis Courts

When it comes to hard court tennis installations, the choice often boils down to asphalt versus concrete, each with its unique advantages and drawbacks. Asphalt courts offer flexibility, making them less prone to cracking due to ground movement or temperature changes. This material is generally more cost-effective for initial installation and provides a slightly softer impact on joints. However, asphalt's softer nature means it may require more frequent resurfacing and can be sensitive to extreme heat.

Concrete courts, on the other hand, stand out for their durability and low maintenance needs. These courts offer a consistent, uniform bounce, ideal for competitive play. However, the hardness of concrete can be tough on players' joints over time, and initial installation costs are usually higher. Additionally, while concrete is long-lasting, it's not immune to cracking due to environmental factors, requiring occasional repairs.
