TigerTurf Launch Guide to Selecting and Maintaining Artificial Grass Tennis Courtsback to list
17 March 2017
Leading artificial grass manufacturer, TigerTurf UK, has launched a new guide dedicated to helping tennis club managers and school facilities staff through the full specification process of an artificial grass tennis court.
Bringing together the latest thinking from within the industry, TigerTurf's A break from tradition: how to select and maintain the best artificial grass tennis courts makes the case for investing in an artificial grass facility – and explains how clubs and schools can get the most from their surface once they have invested.
The guide gathers expert opinion on the installation of artificial surfaces, featuring the thoughts of tennis court contractors, Tennis 2000 Ltd, on the most important considerations for a new installation, a column on choosing suppliers by the Sports and Play Construction Association (SAPCA), and even comment from Tennis Coach Ireland on the playability of artificial surfaces. Those who download the guide will also be able to read about tennis clubs who have successfully installed artificial tennis courts of their own.
The result is a comprehensive look at the reasons why artificial grass is an increasingly popular option within the tennis community, and is designed to help clubs and schools to take advantage of a relatively new, but rapidly evolving market.
Paul Langford, Managing Director at TigerTurf UK, commented, "Tennis is a sport which is developing all the time, and the latest generation of artificial tennis surfaces is furthering this progress no end. So many clubs are looking to do the best thing for members as well as distinguish their facilities from competitors, but it can seem quite a big step without the right information. We’ve produced our guide to put club managers at ease and map out exactly how they can take full advantage of the benefits on offer from an artificial grass court for years to come".
