About Me

Boating and Fishing

Hello, my name is Terrance and this is blog details everything I have learnt about recreation and sports in the last year or so. I have always been a bit of a couch potato, but last year when I spent a long weekend with my son-in-law, he got me up from the TV chair and out and about. He owns a boat which is docked in Sydney harbour. We spent a day sailing on the sea and fishing. It was the first time I had done it and I loved it. Since then, I have started to get more involved and I can't wait to see what sport he intorduces me to next!

4 Reasons to Opt for Synthetic Grass for Your Tennis Court

by Pamela Bennett

Unlike natural grass, synthetic tuff has some superior qualities making it more popular for residential, sports complexes and recreational facilities. Property owners want easier to maintain courts and those that resemble as natural as possible. That's because it allows them to enjoy playtime similar to natural grass. Furthermore, synthetic grass tennis courts are more convenient and affordable to maintain than natural grass courts. Their numerous advantages make artificial grass a more preferred option for tennis courts, including;

A Low-Maintenance Synthetic Turf Courts

Artificial grass requires less maintenance, time and effort from property owners to maintain its functionality and aesthetics. Consequently, they can enjoy more time on the tennis courts than wasting more time tending the court. Compared to natural grass, property owners don't need to worry about time-consuming maintenance tasks, including regular watering, fertiliser application or mowing. You only need to give a synthetic grass tennis court a simple brush and rinse to keep it in tip-top shape. 

Promotes a Uniform Bounce and Ball Play

Since tennis is a game that depends on how well the ball bounces on the surface, the court's texture must have seamless uniformity and consistency. Generally, players rely on the ball's bounce rate to strategise and prepare their move after every shot. Maintaining enough control over the tennis ball will allow players to enjoy extended playtime. Consequently, this allows the game to be more exciting and increases the players' overall performance and skills. 

Synthetic Grass is Durable and Built to Last

Synthetic grass is highly durable and built to last for years. If you choose this artificial grass for your tennis court, you will enjoy a more resilient surface that will last for decades. Its exceptional durability ensures it can endure the harshest elements, including sunlight exposure, without degrading performance levels. If you are a tennis lover, you can enjoy the game throughout the year without interruptions or hassles when you have a synthetic grass tennis court installed.  

Prevents Fading or Smearing of Lines 

Finally, synthetic grass tennis courts won't fade or smear the lines used to mark the playfield no matter the amount of play. The artificial grass holds its cover in place regardless of the stress and the length of sunlight exposure. Either applied via paint or powder, the playground marks will quickly fade on natural grass tennis courts. Since these marks are definitive and significantly guide the playtime, you want to invest in synthetic grass tennis courts that don't fade quickly.
