Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Do you build tennis courts in my area?

We focus most of our energy and effort on building, resurfacing and repairing tennis courts in Florida and the Caribbean. However, we will travel out-of-state for large projects or if we have a pre-existing relationship with the private court owner, builder, developer or architect. We have built tennis courts in Arizona, Nevada and Michigan over the last few years. We can also recommend other tennis court contractors that we know and trust if we are not able to complete a project in your local area.

How much room do I need to build a new tennis court?

A regulation size tennis court measures 60' wide by 120' long. The minimum size approved by the American Sports Builders Association is 56' wide by 114' long. However, you will need slightly more room than either of these sizes for most residential applications as the tennis court will need to be set back from the property lines in order to meet zoning requirements. Consult your local building department for the setback requirements in your municipality.

What tasks do you perform as the tennis court contractor and what tasks am I responsible for as the property owner?

We generally build your new tennis court on a properly prepared sub-base. This means that you as the owner (or your general contractor) are responsible for clearing the land, stabilizing the sub-base (if necessary), grading the sub-base to the required slope and staking the four corners of the court. You are also responsible for providing water and electricity to the court. We can perform these tasks if needed. However, the cost for site work is not included in the ball park ranges given below.
