Whether maintaining a tennis court is part of your job, or you’re just lucky enough to own one, keeping it looking fresh can be a task. Don’t panic – we have a range of tips and products to help you keep your court looking its best and where to get the leading tennis court paint in the UK.
Get the Right Paint
If your court is in need of a complete re-work, you can purchase specialised paint in a wide variety of colours to make sure it looks the part. Paints such as Coo-Var Tennis Court & Drive paint are made especially for tennis courts. It’s a water thinned acrylic coating that’s perfect for adding colour to asphalt or tar based hard courts. You could also use paint such as Rust-Oleum Tarmacoat. It’s a very fast-drying multi-purpose paint that offers protection against weathering and can even withstand car traffic!
Try a Good Coating
To ensure you don’t have to keep going back to go-over your tennis court paintwork, use a good coating. Paints like Rust-Oleum’s Mathys Pegasol Quartz are specially designed to ensure a durable finish with anti-slip protection.
Tidy Up Your Lines
Your tennis court may not need a complete re-paint; perhaps the lines and markings just need sprucing up. Depending on your preference you could use paint like Coo-Var Line Paint for a fast drying, water thinned acrylic resin based line marking paint. If you’d prefer to use aerosols, we recommend Coo-Var Road Line Marking Aerosol Paint – it’s fast drying, multi-surface and available in several colours. Clean and tidy lines will make sure your tennis court looks sharp!
If your paintwork is up to scratch, the next important step is to keep on top of regular cleaning. You should clean your court thoroughly at least once a month. Water is often sufficient enough to keep it clean, however you may want to use a mild detergent to remove any marks or stains. Rainwater can help to keep a court clean but be wary of standing water and any debris left behind on your court.
