Tennis Court – Carnahan-White
If you’re an avid tennis player and have plenty of room on your property, you should consider installing a private tennis court. In this Carnahan-White Fencing Company blog, we discuss important considerations when deciding to build a private tennis court.
The Right Amount of Room
A tennis court takes up a significant amount of space. So, if you’re hoping to build a tennis court on your property, take the time to measure out the exact proportions of the court on your property. The size of a regulation doubles play tennis court is 60 feet by 120 feet. Bring out a professional to consult before making any significant steps. Being careful and meticulous in your planning will ensure that this project is a success!
The Right Type of Lighting
If you’re hoping to play tennis during the shorter winter days or perhaps at night when the heat is too much during the day, you should consider installing flood lights around your tennis court. Though it is an additional cost, it will allow you to use your courts more often so it will be worth it in the long run.
The Right Fencing
An essential part of any tennis court is adequate fencing. The average height of a fence surrounding a tennis court is 10 to 12 feet tall. This should keep you from constantly having to chase runaway tennis balls. Most tennis courts have chain link fences for the benefit of spectators.
Don’t Forget About Drainage
If you hope to avoid flooding on your court every time it rains then make sure you plan to incorporate a drainage system. Make sure no vegetation is growing right up against the court because that can block water from draining. Make sure your court is built on level ground to avoid pooling as well. For more information about proper drainage, you can refer to the American Sports Builders Association.
