Tennis courts eventually show their age with worn spots, uneven areas or large cracks that can make the courts unusable for players who want a smooth, unblemished surface for their ground strokes and serve returns. More than 70% of tennis courts in the U.S. are asphalt. As they age, asphalt courts typically oxidize, shrink and harden, making them more prone to cracking. Depending on the severity of the cracking, the remedies range from a simple resurfacing to total reconstruction.
We were able to rehab the tennis courts for Cardinal Heights Middle School in Sun Prairie with a mill and overlay. We removed the top layer of the surface that was worn and cracked and then we laid down new pavement. Finally, we installed new net posts, detailed the court with the requested colors, and striped the courts adhering to USTA specifications. Now the Cardinal Heights tennis team and area players have sleek and smooth “new” courts they can use for their lobs, passing shots, and serving up aces for years to come!
