Proper Maintenance Tips to Safeguard a Clay
Tennis Court

In order to maintain your tennis court in its
original mint condition, there are several
factors that need to be looked into.
3
You need to hire competent maintenance
professionals who can tend to your courts on a
daily and long-term basis.
4
Here are some tips to help you preserve the
quality of your clay tennis courts.
5
Daily maintenance
6
There are mainly 3 aspects of daily maintenance,
which can be categorized into-
Brushing
Watering
Rolling
7
BRUSHING
8
Brushing a court redistribute the loose top
dressing material and smooths it out after the
play.
It also dries the court out so it should only be
done just prior to watering or if your court is
too wet.
9
Watering
10
Water keeps a court firm and stable, ensuring
proper traction, keeping the court conditions
optimal.
Mostly, watering is done overnight and once
during the middle of the day providing the court
with enough water to keep it playing well until
the next watering cycle.
11
Rolling
12
Rolling a court will make it firmer and faster
and it also helps prevent too much loose top
dressing material from building up on the court
surface.
Rolling is most effective in the morning when a
court has moisture in it and should happen daily
in this setting until the court reaches an
optimal compaction.
13
Other maintenance duties
14
Make use of the tow scarifier which will ensure
that any solidifying substance is effectively
broken up and it will also prevent the surface
from turning excessively firm.
15
Specific regions of the tennis court like service
boxes and baselines tend to become lower with
regular play, which needs to be patched up as and
when required.
16
At the end of each wet season, the clay tennis
court becomes more susceptible to the growth of
moss and it is essential to use moss killer
chemicals to get rid of them in quick time.
