If you’re interested in building a tennis court, Elam Construction can provide a quality foundation to meet your needs. Elam will properly prepare the site and place the asphalt mat, providing you with a base suitable for many different final surface options.
For a single court, an area of 60’ × 120’ is needed for the asphalt mat. Generally, courts should be aligned north and south, and drainage is ideally sloped to the east or west. First, the area is cleared, graded, and compacted to meet the detailed specifications. Next, the road base is put in place. Once the area is ready, a 2-inch leveling course of asphalt is laid down. It should be applied in the same direction as the drainage slope if possible. Then an asphalt overlay fabric is added to help prevent future cracking. Finally, a 2-inch surface course of asphalt is put in place. The final mat will have a uniform slope to ensure proper drainage.
Once the asphalt has cured, you can bring your court to life with your choice of final playing surface, paint, net, lights, fencing, and windscreen.
