In the UK tennis court dimensions can vary and there is no standard size for every facility, however the game line markings are usually applied to the same sizes at 10.97 width x 23.77m length. We are able to build these facilities in a number of designs to suit what you need.

You can have a facility constructed in dimensions which suit the requirements of your project, whether it is for a school, sports club, leisure centre or even a residential tennis surface for your home. There are however, recommended dimensions which most sport surfacing contractors use as a guideline when building a tennis facility, these are:

Domestic Tennis Surface Dimensions with Runoff Surfacing – 16.5m x 33.5m

Sports Facility Specifications

These sizes are given as an outline and can be altered depending on the specifications, budgets and requirements of each organisation and project. A good quality facility must be designed and installed properly to ensure good performance characteristics as well as maintaining the safety of the players to prevent injury. Depending on how the area will be used, you could choose from different specifications for either recreational or professional use.

In many cases schools could choose to have a smaller area built to reduce costs as it may only be used to PE lessons and practise games. The bigger, professional standard courts are usually installed at clubs where competitive matches take place. If you are thinking about installing a surface like this, don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss the project further. Let us know what your budget it and we’ll offer a quote which is affordable for you.

The sports facilities can be installed at these tennis court sizes in a variety of different surfacing types in the UK including porous macadam, polymeric rubber and artificial grass. Professional tennis line marking can also be applied to these surfaces to ensure that game scoring is clear and accurate. It is vital to make sure that your sports facility is installed by a specialist sports surfacing company and that the finished product and tennis court dimensions meet all the performance and safety accreditations set out by the relevant governing bodies of LTA, ITF and SAPCA.
