Cost of building a tennis court  Asphalt court construction costs increase every time gas prices exceed $3 per gallon, and construction costs more in high rent areas.  A single court behind a home is the most expensive method.  Some tennis court contractors won't even return your phone call because most tennis court shoppers can't afford them. A single court with basic equipment, minimum specs, easy access, mild slopes, buildable soils, and sensible local codes.  Asphalt (hard) tennis courts start at $25k  Har-Tru tennis courts start at $50k.  Grass courts similar to Wimbledon, and crushed brick clay courts similar to Roland Garros, are so expensive that I don't know anyone who builds them.  Ballpark cost of building indoor courts not including land or unusual circumstances: Add together the cost of the courts, add the total area (7200sq'x courts +20%) x $150/sq' for the building.  Add $20k for typical  clearing and grading.   Would you like help deciding if tennis court(s) are feasible for you?   The following are examples of both.  See also: 3d siteplan

Buyer's Guide for Tennis Court Constructionkenny roger's har tru tennis courts separated by gazebo

The decision has been made: you want a tennis court. What comes next? Often the answer is confusion. Suddenly, you are overwhelmed by the many decisions that face you. You need help defining your options and making appropriate choices. 

The United States Tennis Court & Track Builders Association http://www.ustctba.com/ can help. Founded in 1965, the USTC&TBA is the trade association for builders, consultants and design professionals who specialize in the construction and maintenance of sports facilities, particularly tennis courts and running tracks. Manufacturers and suppliers of materials, members of the trade press and others interested in tennis court and track construction participate as well. Its membership includes individuals and companies in the United States and around the world. Its goal is to encourage and to uphold high standards of tennis court and running track construction. To this end, the Association offers informative materials to those about to embark on tennis court and track construction projects. These include technical and consumer-oriented publications, including a series of guideline specifications which are regarded as the industry standards for track and tennis court construction. Information on obtaining these and other USTC&TBA publications is included with this Buyer's Guide.  Whether you are building a tennis court for residential use, for a private club, for a resort facility or for a public project, the decisions you make should not be taken lightly. The investment in a court is substantial; however, a well-constructed court, properly maintained, can provide years of playing enjoyment. To get the most out of your investment, be a smart consumer. Do your homework before you begin construction. The reward will be the right court at the right price. Here are some suggested steps.

1. Define your needs.  Long before you begin considering specific surfaces or contacting design professionals or looking for a qualified contractor, you should develop a clear definition of the project. Are you building one court or many? Are you interested in hard courts, cushioned courts or soft courts? Will the courts be staffed or unattended? How much time and money is available for court maintenance? Will courts be used for competition or for casual play? Are you building for year-round or seasonal use? There are many types of courts available today, and surface technology is constantly changing. No one type of court is right for every installation. There are tremendous variances in cost, durability, playing characteristics, maintenance needs, weather resistance and other factors. What is right for a residential court may not be right for a private club. What is right for a site in Arizona may not be right for a project in Maine. As a first step, it is important for the owner to define the priorities and expectations of the court to be installed.

2. Develop a budget. How much can you afford to spend? Developing a budget may be the most difficult step in the construction process. You may have to make some concessions, but in order to make informed choices, you should know what is important to you. Do you need a completed facility now or can you wait a while for landscaping, court amenities and other finishing touches? Do you want a first class facility regardless of cost, or is cost a limiting factor? Are you absolutely certain about a given surface, or type of fencing, or specific site, or are you willing to consider substitutions? Once you see the number of wonderful options available in today's tennis court market, it may be easy to spend far more than you had in mind. Working within a budget involves considering various alternatives and making choices, but choices don't have to mean compromising the end result. A knowledge of what factors are most important to the court you are planning and a desire to seek creative solutions can bring the project in at a reasonable cost. The USTC&TBA can supply a number of publications which can help you learn about these choices in order to assess your needs. A number of other professional organizations and trade magazines also can supply answers. See the reference section of this Buyer's Guide for suggested resources.

3. Consider a consultant.  It may be desirable to employ a consultant to assist in planning, building or renovating a court facility. Depending on the scope of the project, employing the services of an expert can actually help control job costs by better translating the needs of the owner into proper direction for construction, and by helping to avoid costly mistakes. A professional architect, engineer or landscape architect, or a knowledgeable contractor, trained and experienced in tennis court construction, will help you identify your needs and refine the information to the specific requirements of your site. A consultant can assist you in determining the scope of work to be included in the job, in planning the facility, in determining a realistic budget for the project, in evaluating and comparing bids, in overseeing the work in progress and in solving any problems which occur during construction  In employing professional assistance, however, it is important to consider the experience of your consultant. Tennis court construction is a highly specialized field which is undergoing constant change. It is important to employ an individual or firm with extensive current experience in the field of tennis court construction. How do you locate qualified professionals? One way to do so is by contacting professional associations such as the U.S. Tennis Court & Track Builders Association (USTC&TBA), the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE). See the reference section of this Buyer's Guide for addresses of these organizations. Another way to find a qualified professional is by contacting colleagues who have recently completed similar projects and asking for a recommendation. In any case, when you contact a prospective design consultant, be sure to ask questions about the firm's experience in tennis court design. Ask about completed projects and past clients. Contact references and visit completed projects. Ask for proposals and compare them carefully. Be sure you understand what is and what is not included in the proposed contract. Finally, once you choose a professional consultant, carefully negotiate fees and services and be sure to secure a signed letter of agreement or contract which clarifies all aspects of your arrangement. tennis court dimensions

4. Choose a site.  Where will you build? Is your proposed site appropriate for a tennis court? Before you get too far along in planning, be certain that you have an acceptable site. An experienced contractor or design professional can help you to assess your proposed site, but the following general considerations should be met:

  •  For an individual court, the outside playing dimensions are 36' X 78' for doubles, 27' X 78' for singles. Outside tennis court dimensions of at least 60' X 120' is strongly recommended. Where space is limited, the minimum overall dimensions which are acceptable for play are 56' X 114'. For a battery of courts, a 24' separation between courts is recommended, while 12' is considered the absolute minimum.
  • The orientation, or direction in which the court is to be constructed, should be considered at this point. Generally, the hours of use for the court, and the geographic area in which it is to be built, will determine its orientation. If the court is to be used consistently throughout the day, a true north-south orientation is recommended as the best compromise between the extremes of early morning and late afternoon solar angles. Geography comes into the equation because it determines the playing season. Courts in the northern United States, for example, are generally used from late April to October, Therefore, northern courts usually are oriented according to the summer solstice which is approximately mid-season and, therefore, an average of the varying solar angles during this period. In the southern United States, the milder climate allows for play year round. For this reason, southern courts often are oriented according to either the spring or fall equinox, again an average of the varying solar angles. More specific orientation is possible, such as is the case with collegiate facilities, where a substantial amount of play would take place in the spring, and mostly in the afternoon hours. Should this be the case, the court should be oriented west of south for the months of April and May to minimize conflict with the afternoon sun.
  • Ground should be reasonably level, preferably on the same plane or higher than adjacent land, to allow drainage away from the courts.
  • The site should be sheltered from prevailing winds, away from traffic noise and other distractions, and devoid of shadows cast by buildings or trees.
  • A dark, solid background is desirable. Light backgrounds, such as white buildings, or moving backgrounds, such as people or traffic, should be avoided at the ends of the court. Landscaping or windscreens can be used to screen out inappropriate backgrounds.

Subsoil stability and drainage conditions are important to tennis court construction. Many sites may not require extensive site investigation. In some cases, shallow hand dug test pits, auger borings or backhoe excavation can reveal conditions which may cause potential problems. The presence of certain conditions, however, mandates more careful site investigation. These include: 1) peat or organic soils; 2) uncontrolled fill materials or waste materials; 3) expansive soils; and 4) high ground water. Special usage of courts, such as conversion to an ice rink over winter, will also require additional site review. 
5. Choose a surface and develop working specifications.  The single most important choice in planning a tennis court is the type of surface. Today, there are many  choices. There is no right surface, but there may be a right surface for you, given your financial resources, level of usage, preferred style of play, location, and maintenance capability. Learning about prospective surfacing systems and choosing the best system for your circumstances are the keys to long term satisfaction. 
Classification of Tennis Court Surfaces

To give you some idea of the number of choices available to a prospective owner, the USTC&TBA classifies tennis court surfaces as follows:

Porous Construction

Fast Dry
Clay
Natural Grass
Sand-Filled Synthetic Turf Over Porous Base
Porous Asphalt
Porous Concrete
Modular

Non-Porous Construction

(Non-Cushioned)

Reinforced and Post-Tensioned Concrete
Hot Plant Mix Asphalt
Asphalt Penetration Macadam

Non-Porous Construction

(Cushioned)

Polymer Bound Systems
Textiles
Sand-Filled Synthetic Turf Over Non-Porous Base
Portable
  • Within each classification, there are additional choices for the owner—brand names, court speed, etc. Each type of surface has advantages and disadvantages. The choice of surface should be made carefully.
    Tennis players, however, more commonly classify tennis courts as “hard courts” or “soft courts”. 
    A hard court is one made of asphalt or concrete, usually covered with an acrylic coating. The coating protects the court from the elements, enhances its appearance, and affects the playing characteristics of the court. Generally, a hard court yields what is known as a 'fast' game, meaning that a tennis ball bounces off the court surface at a low angle. The speed and angle of the tennis ball coming off a bounce are determined by the power and spin of the hit and are relatively unaffected by the surface of the court. This speed, however, can be adjusted depending on the amount, type and size of sand used in the color coating. "Slow" playing, textured surfaces are available.
    Properly installed, hard courts are generally considered to be durable and to require relatively low maintenance. Installation costs range from $18,000 - $40,000, depending upon the specific construction.
    When a resilient layer (or layers) of cushioning material is applied over an asphalt or concrete court, a cushioned court results. Cushioned courts usually have excellent playing characteristics and an all-weather surface for year round play. These attributes make them popular with players but such courts are considerably more expensive than hard courts; cushioning adds $5,000 - $25,000 to the cost of the court, over and above the cost of the asphalt or concrete base.
    Soft courts, including clay, fast dry, grass and sand-filled synthetic turf, are entirely different from their hard counterparts. They are quite popular with players because they are easy on feet, back and legs. They generally provide a cool, glare-free surface. With the exception of grass and synthetic turf, they produce 'slow' play which lends itself to a strategy game which many club players enjoy. Grass and synthetic turf produce a fast game and, according to some experts, lend themselves to the largest variety of tennis strokes. In some areas, fast dry, clay and grass courts are less expensive to construct than hard courts, but they require daily care and, for clay and fast dry courts, annual repair and/or resurfacing. Soft courts are easily damaged, but also easily repaired. These courts usually must be closed for the winter in colder climates.

    The USTC&TBA can supply a number of publications which provide additional information on tennis court surfaces, their specific playing characteristics, approximate cost and maintenance considerations. See the publications order form included with this brochure for ordering information.
    Once a surface is chosen, you should draft specifications. The more specific and detailed your specifications, the more likely that prospective builders will submit comparable bids. Specifications should outline the scope of work, including the subbase and base preparation, materials and hardware to be provided. Be sure to make clear in your specifications whether particular materials are required, or whether substitutions or equivalents are acceptable. Specifications also should detail the amounts of materials to be used. The USTC&TBA can provide guidelines for use in drafting specifications for a project. For larger projects, it may be advisable to utilize a design professional or consultant to assist in developing specifications. 

    HAR-TRU CLAY TENNIS COURT SURFACE

  • The HAR-TRU brand tennis court surfacing is the most popular "HAR-TRU" type tennis court surface in the United States, and is a standard in the tennis clay court industry. HAR-TRU tennis court clay is made from billion year old Pre-Cambrian metabasalt found in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. This rock is crushed, screened, and mixed in the precise proportions necessary to produce a stable surface. LEE Tennis Products' dedication to quality has made HAR-TRU tennis court clay the number one selling tennis court surface of its type in the United States.  HAR-TRU tennis court clay can be used for both new tennis court construction or for top dressing. A layer of these finely crushed, green rock particles is installed over a porous base of crushed, stone aggregate to produce a finished surface. A HAR-TRU tennis court can also be built over existing tennis court clay, asphalt, or concrete tennis courts. Many tennis clubs have already converted their hard tennis courts to HAR-TRU tennis courts to satisfy player demand.

    History of Har-Tru

    Har-Tru® surfacing is the original fast drying clay-like tennis court surface material. The basic ingredient in Har-Tru® surfacing originated in the late 1920’s. Tennis court builders in the U.S. were searching for a surfacing material that could compete favorably with a European porous court surface that was replacing grass and clay courts. The answer was a product named “Har-Tru®.” Extensive experimentation with stone resulted in the optimum particle gradients for surface stability and porosity. The new surfacing was introduced with a fast drying quality far superior to its European competitor. By 1932, Har-Tru® tennis courts were already becoming a prominent feature on the tennis circuit. In 1936 the West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills, New York, decided to add Har-Tru® courts to its facility. Again in 1974, the Har-Tru® Corporation was contracted to build the center court at Forest Hills, replacing the traditional grass court with its fast drying surface for the U.S. Open Tennis Championships. Many other tournaments have been played on Har-Tru® such as the Canadian Open and the U.S.  Clay Court Championships in Indianapolis; Charlotte and Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina; and now in Charleston, South Carolina.  Today’s Har-Tru® court is widely recognized as the finest tennis court surface in the world.  With over 60 years of experience, the Har-Tru® court continues to gain popularity and attract all levels of tennis players.

    clay tennis court cross section building detail roland garros turbatu The Clay at Roland Garros AKA Turbatu  The French Open is the only Grand Slam event to be played on clay. The bounce of the ball on clay is low and slow compared to surfaces like grass and Hard Tru, thus favoring a more technical game. Many top players with power games, such as Pete Sampras, have been stymied at the French Open.

    The photo at left shows a cross section of the clay court. Below the clay surface is a 5 cm thick layer of limestone, followed by a layer of iron ore slag (the remnants of iron extraction). Small stones and gravel below this allow the surface to remain stable and drain excess water. Underneath is natural ground treated so as to remain flat. The court construction was designed by Charles Bouhana, who was originally hired to maintain the lawn at Roland Garros. Covering the clay surface is a thin (2 mm) layer of red brick dust. It is placed there for aesthetic reasons and for the players' comfort: it enables them to see the ball more easily and to slide on the ground when running for the ball. The natural color of the brick is gray, but it is colored red to create more contrast with the yellow ball. Making enough dust for the courts at Roland Garros is no mean feat: 800kg (1760lbs) of dust are used for each court every year!

    6. Make specific choices regarding amenities and accessories to be included in your tennis court project.
    A fine tennis court begins with a well-built base and a quality surface, but it doesn't end there. Even a very well-built facility may still lack the features that make it a pleasure for players to use. Tennis court accessories are those items, not part of the actual court construction, which are necessary or highly desirable for the use or maintenance of the court. They include net posts and nets, lighting, fencing, windscreens, divider curtains and maintenance equipment. When a court is used for serious competition, a number of additional items of equipment are required or desirable. Tennis court amenities are those items that set a tennis court apart from the ordinary and make it really comfortable and pleasurable to use. Amenities include items like benches, back boards, drinking fountains, spectator seating, landscaping, etc. Which of these items will be included in your construction project? You may choose to contract out for a "turnkey" project, or you may act as your own general contractor, choosing various companies to supply parts of the project: base construction, surface, fencing, lighting, etc. Before you seek bids, you need to carefully define the scope of the project and develop a clear set of construction documents.
    7. Hire a qualified contractor.
    Choosing the right contractor can determine the ultimate success of your tennis facility. A knowledgeable and experienced contractor can help you, the owner, make the right decisions resulting in a quality project. Tennis court construction is a highly specialized field within the construction industry. It is vital that the contractor you choose be familiar with the current marketplace, as well as with the type of surface you intend to install.

    How do you find a qualified contractor? One way is to contact the USTC&TBA. As the trade association for tennis court builders, the USTC&TBA can provide a directory of its member contractors. In addition, the USTC&TBA conducts a certified builder program. Experienced contractors earn the Certified Tennis Court Builder (CTCB) designation by completing a number of projects and by passing a certification examination. CTCBs must recertify every three years. The Association also conducts an inquiry program, requesting information on your behalf from contractors and suppliers who have the answers to your questions. 

    Another way to locate such specialists is by consulting tennis clubs, municipal facilities and schools, as well as individuals, who have recently completed tennis court projects. Ask whether or not they would recommend their contractor and, further, ask some specific questions. Was the job completed on time? Did it meet the owner's expectations? Were there any hidden costs? Was the contractor able to solve any problems which arose during construction? If there have been any post-construction problems, was the builder responsive in taking care of them? How does the court look? How does it play? Remember, both experience and reliability of the prospective builder are important.
    From a study of weather and playing conditions in our country it has been determined that, in general, courts built south of the 38th degree parallel, a line which runs approximately through Louisville, Kentucky, are playable on a twelve month year-around basis. Courts north of the 38th degree parallel are considered non-playable for approximately four to five winter months of the year due to cold weather. Therefore, because of the summer sun angle during standard time, at approximately 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., outdoor courts north of the 38th degree parallel can be oriented directly true north-south. This will allow good playing conditions during the summer months from mid to late afternoon.

    Outdoor courts built south of the 38th degree parallel, however, are considered generally good for play all year around. By a careful analysis of sun angles at both equinox times in mid-March and mid-September, between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., when it is assumed that most tennis is played, and taking into account the fact that about 85% of the players are right-handed, it has been determined that the most comfortable angle for court setting is 22 degrees south-east and north-west for the length of the court off true north-south. This can even be increased to 30 degrees off north-south for courts built in the extreme southern areas of the United States.

    The first courts known to be oriented 22 degrees south-east and north-west were constructed in Houston about 35 years ago. Observation of these and other courts south of the 38th parallel at both equinox times show no shadow of the net on either side of the court between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m., which indicates that each side of the court has equal sun angles, which is assumed to be the ideal outdoor playing condition with respect to sun glare affecting either side of the court more than the other.

    As the sun moves lower (south) in the winter months and higher (north) in the mid-summer months, the sun glare angle will be slightly more on the respective sides of the courts, but not enough to materially produce excessive glare.

    On the other hand, if an outdoor court were laid out exactly north-south in the southern part of the United States, the intense glare from the sun in the mid-winter months between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. would seriously affect right-handed players on the north court by their having to look directly into the suns rays as they face the south court, and would make playing conditions extremely uncomfortable.

    The final orientation of the tennis court is also affected by the cost of construction relative to the substantial slope of the land, zoning requirements and/or the owner's wishes. The need to orient a tennis court in a predominant east - west direction may exist in order to fulfill the construction criteria for the tennis facility, but it should be recognized that a predominant east-west orientation may substantially impair the useability of the facility.

    If the owner's desires are for evening or night play, orientation does not become an extremely important concern. Refer to the outdoor lighting section for further information.

    This court orientation has been officially approved by the United States Tennis Association and the U.S. Tennis Court and Track Builder's Association.

    Tennis Court Orientation

    Orientation Relative to Sun Angle

    A tennis court should be laid out to minimize players looking into the sun when serving or when following the flight of a ball. A tennis court also should be laid out to avoid distracting shadow lines and patterns on the court surface.

    Theoretically, the best possible layout would be to orient the longitudinal axis of the court perpendicular to the azimuth of the sun -- the angular measurement of the horizontal location of the sun in relation to true north. Since the azimuth of the sun constantly shifts according to the time of day, the season of the year and the latitude in which it is observed, it is difficult to generalize about an ideal orientation.

    Suggested Orientation Diagram for Courts South of 42 Degrees N. Latitude (No Scale)

    It is not unusual to orient a tennis court to match a specific season. Courts in the northern United States, for example, are generally used from late April to October. Therefore, northern courts usually are oriented according to the summer solstice which is approximately mid-season and, therefore, an average of the varying solar angles during this period. In the southern United States, the milder climate allows for play year round. For this reason, southern courts often are oriented according to either the spring or fall equinox, again an average of varying solar angles.

    Orientation can be more specific. If a court is to be used most often in the afternoon hours during the spring, as is the case with many collegiate facilities, the court should be oriented west of north for the months of April and May to minimize conflict with the afternoon sun. If the court is to be used for a specific tournament held at the same time each year, the court can be oriented properly for the actual hours of play of the final match.

    NOTE: It is important to remember that the orientation of the court should be in relation to true north, not to magnetic north. The angular difference between true north and magnetic north is referred to as the "deviation of magnetic north." This deviation changes according to the geographic location. Information relating to the deviation of magnetic north from true north can be easily obtained from a local surveyor or airport facility  OTOH, this error diminishes toward the equator.

    Orientation Relative to Other Factors

    Orientation also should take into consideration other structures and features on the site, neighboring property, vehicle and pedestrian traffic and prevailing winds. Property lines, zoning requirements, topography of the site and efficient site utilization should be considered as well.

    Assuming flat land, what is the cost of building a clay court , storage area for maintainance stuff for court and how much should I budget annually for maintainance??? There are no clay courts in my area so I will probably have to train someone how to maintain same  Chris

    I prefer playing tennis on clay (Har-Tru), but haven't built a clay court since Kenny Rogers' www.signaturelandscapes.com/horsefarm.htm  because they cost considerably more more than hard courts, (30-50%) depending on how far a qualified contractor would have to travel, and shipping cost.  Building a single hard court is more expensive than multiple courts, so building a single clay court would be toward the low end of the difference.

    Please see my best guesses about construction costs on my tennis page www.signaturelandscapes.com/tennis.htm  Other than geographic location, lighting is one of the widest variables.  Environmental lights cost at least 2x the typcial parking lot lights.  .  Unless you are building several courts, and want a sweeping machine, there is no storage requirement, because brushes and brooms are typically hung on the fences.

    If you find a tennis court contractor who is qualified to build a clay court, they will most likely maintain their courts as needed.  Clay courts aren't suited to city parks, due to vandalism.  Daily maintenance is pretty simple, with cooperation from your country club members.  Watering clay courts can be semi automatic, with moisture sensors.  Brushing is normally done by the members after each set.  Replacing clay is periodic, as needed.   Other than wear and tear, the most common problems result from neglect:  Too much or too little water, accumlating leaves and/or snow, and tree root intrusion.

     Hope this helps!
