Hard Tennis Court Construction - Asphalt & Concrete
The American Sports Builders Association recomends that an asphalt tennis court is 4″+ of compacted base material and 1 1/2″ of asphalt, followed by an acrylic color coating system (for non-freeze thaw climates). In freeze thaw climates the compacted base should be 6″+ and the asphalt should be 3″+ (see diagram). Typical concrete courts are four inches thick followed by a similar acrylic color coating system. An option to consider for either hard court is a DecoTurf® cushioning system.
