Tennis Court Grit

grit for tennis courts
This semi-loose grit surface is rated by many players as the very best to play on. With the slight give in the surface, it is said that it is like having a well-prepared grass court available for play throughout the year.

With a method of construction pioneered by Grimshaw Sports over 50 years ago, 60% of the grit dressing is bonded to the porous surface to provide grip underfoot. The remainder is left loose to provide a slight degree of “slip”.

An excellent surface for private tennis courts with benefit that it can be “adjusted” to suit your style of play as the proportion of loose grit changes the speed of the play, height of bounce and degree of slip.  It is also kinder on the knees!

The grit eventually becomes too rounded with use and needs to be replaced with fresh angular stones.  The stones are quarried in Wales and are known as ‘Gra Green Grit’ and ‘Grey Green Grit’ simply because of the colour differentiation between wet and dry.
