Synthetic clay rivals natural clay and is a popular alternative for tennis courts in the UK. The main advantage being its porosity for our climate, whilst still requiring little maintenance along with the added durability of the surface.
Artificial clay courts use a synthetic carpet with a layer of sand infill and achieve the playing characteristics almost identical to real clay surfaces in terms of ball bounce, pace and slide. In wet weather, unlike natural clay-courts they are completely permeable, so rain-water drains through the surface to allow play to resume quickly after a period of rain.
Natural clay also requires the surface to be brushed after every match, but with synthetic clay they only need brushing once a day and so no additional maintenance is generally required.
We are able to offer a range of synthetic clay products to meet your budget needs, such as ‘Clayrite MF’ from Playrite which is a tufted monofilament sand filled surface through to Lano’s Grand Clay 12 at the top end of the market.
