Optimum grip and excellent damping - the ideal surface for any tennis court

The success story of modern tennis began in Wimbledon in 1877, when today’s rules were set out as part of the first tennis tournament. The demands on the body and mind are immense in tennis – Grand Slam matches regularly exceed the five-hour mark and demand patience, fitness and a clear head from players. The sport is also technically demanding, and different tennis coverings influence the character of the match. The sport is popular with amateurs, and tennis courts come equipped with specially developed surfaces.

Optimal tennis court construction with artificial turf

Sand, grass, turf, carpet and concrete have long been among the different tennis court surfaces around the world. Tennis court surfaces differ significantly depending on the surface, affecting ball bounce, speed, damping and slipping, among others. Tradition and climate can influence surface selection; while sand courts, natural grass and synthetic turf are the preferred playing fields in Europe, acrylic sports covering systems are well established in North America and Australia. In April 2020 Sport Group was awarded a five-year contract to equip the US Open tennis courts with Laykold Acrylic tennis surface systems.
