Porous Macadam Tennis or Kickabout courts are now a very common sporting facility in the UK as they can cater for multi sports, be painted in numerous colours and will suit many different designs and specifications.
Macadam ball courts or tennis courts are normally painted in an anti slip polyurethane or PU coatings as it is hard wearing and durable and is perfectly designed for that sports surfacing. The anti slip coating aspect of the paint will help to reduce slipping during sporting play and will comply with testing of TRRL 60 for multi sport and TRRL 75 for Netball.
There are also other sports surface finishes in the UK such as EPDM Polymeric recycled rubber and AGP / Synthetic Grass and there are also different anti slip coatings can be used which are suitable. These coatings are a Water Based and Acrylic and also have different sporting properties which will be more suitable to the sports finish, rather than the PU coating.
If in time, the Tennis court is need of upgrading, resurfacing, recolouring or cleaning, then these surfaces and surface coatings can all be used when this is needed. As these MUGA facilities are all designed or specified to different sizes and dimensions, there are different application methods for these coatings and the airless spray method is considered the best option for coverage per m2, especially for the larger areas.
