Post Tension Concrete tennis court construction also begins with setting a proper budget for the project. The cost of a post tension tennis court can range significantly based upon many factors including the thickness of the tensioning cables and the concrete, size of the tennis court, fencing opions, lighting, and how much initial grading is involved in the project. The standard post tension new tennis court in Georgia is built using 5'' of concrete. The installation begins by grading the site with the proper fall for water removal with a laser guided moter grader. Match Point Tennis will then install a vapor barrier over the sub base and set wooden forms around the perimeter of the tennis court pad. Fence posts are then set prior to the concrete pour. The tensioning cables are then laid going both directions on the court, which will appear in a grid like pattern. The cables are then set on chairs, which are used to elevate the cables so they are not lying on the vapor barrier and will go through the middle of the concrete depth for support. The next step is pouring the concrete and completing the concrete finishing work. The concrete then needs to cure for a minimum of 28 days or until it reaches the proper strength to tension the cables. Once the cables are tensioned, the tennis court pad is ready for the surfacing installation.
Asphalt tennis court construction begins with setting a proper budget for the project. The cost of a tennis court can range significantly based upon many factors including the thickness of the GAB base and asphalt, size of the tennis court, fencing options, lighting, and how much initial grading is involved in the project. The standard new tennis court in Georgia is built using 4 inches of GAB and 2'' of topping asphalt. For a park and recreation installations, Match Point Tennis recommends 4 inches of GAB, 1.5'' Binder Asphalt, and 1 inch of topping asphalt. The fencing that we typically use for neighborhoods consists of black or green LCX 20 weight posts and top rail with 9 gauge 1 3/4'' mesh or tennis court wire fencing. For park and recreation installations, we recommend the posts and top rail to be vinyl coated SS40 or Schedule 40. These are thicker and much stronger posts. The surface is typically the same for all types of installations, comprising of multiple coats of acrylic resurfacer to fill in any voids in the new asphalt and two coats of acrylic color coating for the finished surface. Match Point Tennis does offer a cushion court option for the surface as well. Most neighborhoods will then select tennis court accessories to finish their project including benches, scorekeepers, windscreen, Miracle Dri units, and Tidy Court Valets.
