Typically tennis courts are constructed out of asphalt or concrete. Each surface has its plusses and minuses. Regardless of the construction material selected for your new courts the most important consideration is the location, design, soils, drainage, construction techniques, and experience of the contractor.
Byrne & Jones specializes in constructing both asphalt and post-tension concrete courts. We have over 30 years of asphalt and concrete construction experience – servicing the sports market. We have built, serviced, and maintained over 1,000 tennis courts in the Midwest.
Asphalt has been the industry standard for decades. If properly designed, constructed, and maintained they should last anywhere from 12-18 years.
A lot of tennis court owners prefer asphalt over post-tension concrete, because it’s a softer surface and it typically cost less to construct.
Post-tension concrete courts are gaining in popularity throughout the United States. The main reason, they are less susceptible to cracking than asphalt courts. Post-tension involves encasing cables in both directions in concrete, then stressing and locking the cables in compression once the concrete has the proper compressive strength.
When constructing a tennis court(s) Byrne & Jones takes the entire site into consideration. From orientation, soil stability, drainage, landscaping design, and fencing. We use state-of-the-art laser guided equipment to ensure perfect playing surface conditions, drainage, and longevity for years to come.
