Tennis Court Irrigation

Every type of tennis court has different tennis court irrigation needs.  Some tennis courts require above ground irrigation while others require sub surface irrigation.  For instance; clay courts are like sponges that hold water. This water evaporates over the course of a day. Irrigation regimens should be designed to replenish water lost during the day.

Some additional tennis court irrigation tips:

  • Water multiple times for short durations to allow your court to absorb and retain water more readily.
  • Always water after brushing as brushing accelerates drying.
  • Adjust sprinkler heads on a weekly basis to ensure proper coverage.

Reasons why proper tennis court irrigation is important:

  • Water keeps the court stable and firm.
  • A properly watered court provides better traction.
  • An effective irrigation system reduces downtime.
  • Proper hydration minimizes erosion.
  • Water gives the court a beautiful, rich color.
  • Proper hydration helps keep tapes in place.
  • Water evaporates during play keeping the court and the players cool and comfortable.
  • An effective irrigation system reduces daily, periodic, and annual maintenance.
  • Optimal water means fewer bad bounces.
  • Properly hydrated courts drain more quickly.

Watering should take place as needed to keep court conditions optimal. At most facilities watering is done overnight and once during the middle of the day. Whatever the schedule, it should be designed to provide the court with enough water to keep it playing well until the next watering cycle.
