10 reasons to celebrate synthetic grass on World Tennis Day

Today we’re celebrating the inaugural World Tennis Day. Launched this year by the International Tennis Federation (ITF), the event focuses on a series of high profile events and aims to promote tennis participation around the world.

As a UK based manufacturer of synthetic grass, we’d like to celebrate the joys of tennis by sharing our 10 good reasons to select a synthetic grass surface for your tennis court facility:

Synthetic grass courts compared to natural grass courts:

    1. Require less maintenance
    2. Wear resistant
    3. User friendly/clean
    4. Extend the tennis season as less affected by weather
    5. Quicker recovery to playing standard following rain
    6. Excellent/consistent play characteristics

      Synthetic grass courts compared to macadam courts:
    7. Allow some slide
    8. Lower, more consistent ball bounce
    9. Minimal impact on muscles and joints
    10. More aesthetically pleasing

Thornton Contracts have installed synthetic grass for a number of tennis facilities recently, and our clients would agree that synthetic grass was the ideal choice for them.

Alasdair Rattray of Boston Spa Tennis Club, where we recently installed 2 Classic County synthetic grass tennis courts comments,

“Without exception our members have commented on how much they like the good ball bounce and how secure their feet feel even in wet conditions”.
