What is the benefit of synthetic grass over a hard court surface?

  • Synthetic grass is a  better looking surface that fits the natural surroundings.  
  • It is an all weather surface that allows play straight after rain.  
  • Grass is much easier on players' ankle, knee and hip joints.
  • Longer lasting - up to 20 years in a private residence.
  • Low maintenance (clean surface of leaves and spray once a year).

What base do I need for a synthetic grass court?  Either concrete or asphalt are the preferred base options.  Depending on the stability of the sub base and depth of the basecourse, we recommend a minimum 100mm reinforced slab with a 1% fall across the surface.  The concrete can be fibre reinforced or include 668 mesh in 20mpa concrete. 

What tennis court dimensions do you recommend?  In a private residence 34m x 16m, up to a maximum of 36m x 18m. Inner city sites can be smaller depending on the space available.  Actual playing area is 23.78m x 10.97m.

What is the best orientation for my court? North to slightly North-East.

What surface should I choose?  Our standard private residence surface is Satellite.  This 19mm surface offers a good economical option that will not be exposed to high intensive use.  Satellite Plus and Protour both offer a higher density per sqm, this provides a longer lasting surface but performance will be very similar. The higher density of yarn will also provide a slightly better looking surface with the appearance of less sand.

What is the "Protour" surface?  This is our top of the line club surface manufactured at 15mm pile height.  This surface is manufactured on a different machine from the 19mm surfaces and has an additional 20% more yarn.  The additional yarn provides a "carpet" like surface with 20% less sand and therefore a better looking finished court.

What colours are available? Buffalo Green, Olive, Terracotta and Blue.

Where does the product come from?  The grass is manufactured in Sydney and the raw materials come from Holland and Scotland.

Do you provide a warranty? Yes, 7 years against any premature breakdown of the yarn due to UV rays and 24 months on installation workmanship on-site.  

Do you glue the court to the concrete or asphalt base?  No, the court surface is loose laid over the base with all seams taped and glued.  The sand infill holds the court in place - there is approximately 10-12 tonne of sand per court.  In areas where the court is exposed to high winds, the edge of the court should be glued to the base. 

How long does the turf last - what is the warranty?  The actual life expectancy is 15-25 years with a limited 7-year factory warranty.

Does the turf drain like regular turf or soil?  The drainage is very similar to natural turf.  The turf backing has plenty of perforated holes allowing for water to drain vertically.  The infill acts as a filter also.

What maintenance is required for the turf?  Spraying for moss and algae needs to be completed every 6 months plus specialist cleaning and grooming of the sand to keep it clean, loose and free draining.

Will the turf fade?  No, the fibres have a UV protection coating and can withstand the effects of sun, heat, wind, snow, and ice

Is the turf safe for our children to play on?  Research shows children have fewer injuries when playing on artificial turf compared to other ground covers. We have turf installed at numerous schools and childcare centers. Our turf meets all requirements for safety...

Is the proplay system for playgrounds an economical option?  The proplay pad and turf provides one of the most cost effective solutions on the market, in particular for the higher fall height areas of a playground.

Will our pet damage the turf?  No your pet will not damage your synthetic turf, the turf fibres are very strong and can withstand play and use from cats and dogs. 

Can weeds grow through the turf?  Periodically a weed will try to come up, most commonly on the edges near concrete. It is possible to see one come up in a drain hole. If that happens pull up the weed and spray the area with a little weed killer, it will stop the weed from coming up again and won't harm the turf.

Does the turf need to be re-sanded?  No, the turf is installed with the correct volume of sand.

What happens if the turf is damaged (fireworks etc)?  The affected area can be cut out and replaced very easily.
