Community sports areas are a great way to socialize and practice your sporting skills. Every community offers a family-friendly sporting area where adults and children can come and play together. When a play area, especially tennis courts are used by many people, regular maintenance becomes important to keep the area in good condition.
When you are the manager of a local sports gymnasium, then you should know that tennis courts should be properly maintained. Here are some helpful ways to give you an insight into how tennis courts should be maintained.
Repair And Resurface Regularly
The surfaces of tennis courts are usually made of concrete. Concrete floors are more reliable and last longer. However, with constant use, tennis court floors can become bumpy and cracks may also appear. Damaged floors can cause hindrance in the game and may make players angry.
You should repair tennis court floors regularly. You can also maintain the floor with concrete polishing. Polishing the floor will remove all the cracks and bumps created on the floor. It will also improve the experience of players and make the community happy.
Ensure Proper Drainage
Water accumulation in tennis courts and nearby areas can irritate the players. Moreover, water puddles on the tennis court floor can cause some serious damage.
You should make sure that the drainage pipes are functioning properly. In days of heavy rain pours you should make sure that all rainwater gets out of the court. If there is standing wanted, ensure its timely removal to avoid any permanent damage. You should also make sure that there is no dirt, mud, or leaves accumulated on the sinkholes so that all the rainwater drains directly into the pipes.
Tennis courts are usually protected by fences so that the ball remains on the court. When players are constantly using tennis courts, the constant hitting of tennis balls on the fences can break the fence. Call the commercial fence repair team to make sure that the surrounding iron walls are sturdy.
Damaged fences can cause trouble for the players. If the fence is broken, the ball will keep on going out of the court, which will make it difficult for players to concentrate on their game. Moreover, broken fences are also a hazard as they can cause injury to someone.
Clean Courts Thoroughly
You should make sure that the tennis court is cleaned thoroughly. You should ensure cleanliness every day by making sure that someone brooms the entire area and collects fallen leaves and dirt. Make sure that no hard brushes are used.
You should also make sure to check the courts for molds and tiny plants. Any plantation near the court can ruin the floors of the court. You should also make sure that the court environment is clean. Spray regularly to kill bugs and mosquitoes that might irritate the players.
Tennis courts in the community play area should be maintained regularly to ensure safety for all users. Make sure that you keep the courts clean and repair any minor issues instantly to avoid any permanent damage.
