We can provide tennis court construction and bespoke covering systems in dimensions and heights that conform to all the requirements of the Lawn Tennis Association.
We offer fixed domes for indoor tennis courts and telescopic domes that provide all-weather protection for outdoor facilities, enabling play to continue come rain or shine.
Tennis court layouts
Tennis courts are laid out on a rectangular surface with a low net across the centre. Each equal half contains a left and right service box, where serves must land for play to continue.
A baseline marks the boundaries on the length of the court, while sidelines mark the boundaries on the width. Doubles alleys are also included, widening the court for doubles matches.
A standard court is 23.78 metres long and 10.97 metres wide, while the net is 1.07 metres high and stretches the full width of the court, regardless of whether singles or doubles games are being played.
There are four main types of tennis courts, each with their own playing surface. Grass courts are the fastest in common use and are used for outdoor tennis court construction.
Clay courts, made from crushed shale, stone or brick, are also used outdoors, although indoor tennis courts can have clay surfaces if underground watering systems are present.
Acrylic and synthetic hard courts are suitable for both outdoor tennis facilities and are the most common surface used for indoor courts.
Another option is the carpet court, which is a removable covering used in indoor arenas.
At CopriSystems, we can provide tennis court covers to suit all types of tennis courts, whether you’re building two outdoor grass courts end to end or a series of six indoor hard courts complete with spectator areas.
Before all-weather covers were installed over Wimbledon’s Centre Court, play was frequently interrupted by the unpredictable UK weather. Now, matches can continue regardless of the outside conditions.
We can provide high quality tennis court covers for your facilities, enabling your players to do as the champions do and continue on whatever the weather.
Our telescopic domes are a great solution for outdoor tennis courts, providing flexible coverage whenever it’s required. Sections can be pulled back electronically in less than a minute.
All our tennis court structures are designed in accordance with British Standards Building Regulations for snow and wind loadings and made from high-tensile steel, which is hot dip galvanised for corrosion protection.
Covers are made from heavy-duty, flame-retardant, PVC-coated polyester fabric with sliding side curtains as standard. Curtains can also be fitted at the gable ends, offering better protection against the wind. Second membrane skins can also be added for extra insulation.
