As tennis court maintenance specialists, we know that over time a court surface can become plagued with moss, algae and lichen. We also know that these natural developments not only make a court look unloved and untidy, but can also have a major impact on the performance, drainage and most importantly safety of the court.

Moss and algae on the surface of your tennis court can significant impact the way in which the surface is able to drain. If the surface becomes overgrown and clogged then the drainage qualities of the surface can be significantly reduced. This in turn can then cause patches of the surface to perform inconsistently and an increase in water logging and surface water which can also pose safety risks.
Moss can build-up on a tennis court surface over a relatively short period and adversely affect the playing characteristics of your court. This is particularly common during the ‘close season’ months where a court remains exposed to the elements but sees little use. By undertaking a controlled pressure washing and cleaning programme your court can be brought back to life in both looks and consistency of play.
Correct pressure cleaning of a tennis court can also help restore and improve its original playing characteristics. Over time moss, grit and debris can build up and alter the playing characteristics of the surface leading to issues including a reduction in the speed of play together with anomalies in ball behaviour. By removing any foreign matter from the court’s surface by correct pressure cleaning, any anomalies can be reduced and speed of play restored.
As well as helping to ensure the consistency of your court’s playing surface, one of the most obvious effects of pressure washing and cleaning is to the undeniable improvement in the aesthetic appearance of your beloved court. It’s only natural if you have a tennis court at home you will want to ensure that it continues to look good year after year, or if you run a tennis club you want your courts to remain attractive to encourage new members and business. Quality, professional pressure washing and cleaning not only delivers an improved playing surface, it also goes a long way to keeping your investment looking great.
