We treat your court like family!
A Tennis court resurfacing project is only as good as the original court construction and the initial surfacing solution. Great care should be taken in preparing the base, proper paving techniques and drainage. A Tennis court must have at least 1% slope in one direction to allow water to drain off the court properly. STANDING WATER WILL DETERIORATE ALL COATINGS AND THE PAVEMENT ITSELF. Additionally, make sure the perimeter of the Tennis court drains away from the court and do not plant trees or landscaping too close to the court. Landscaping can look great but many root systems are vast and can be a maintenance nightmare. The vast majority of Tennis courts are constructed of asphalt. Due to the excessive amount of UV and rain in Florida, asphalt oxidizes or ages rapidly. It is imperative that a high quality material be used to slow down this process and yield a long lasting vibrant colored surface. NOT ONE THAT CHALKS OUT AFTER 2-3 YEARS DUE TO POOR QUALITY MATERIALS. It can be the difference between a good court and a J’s Quality Court.

Overall Tennis Court Dimensions
The overall size of a tennis doubles court is 36 feet wide by 78 feet long. The singles court is slightly narrower measuring 27 feet wide. Both singles and doubles courts share the same length.
The Service Court
The service court fits inside the singles width of the court (27 feet wide) and extends back from the net 21 feet. The service court is divided in half with a center line marking the left and right service courts.
The net measures 3 feet 6 inches high at the ends and 3 feet high at the middle tape. Typically the net standards are placed 3 feet outside the outer lines of the doubles court, making the net length a total of 42 feet from pole to pole.
Distance from other Courts and Fencing
It is adviseable to have a distance of a 12 foot perimeter on each side of the sidelines and 21 feet from each baseline to create enough playing area inside fencing and adjacent tennis courts.
