With Wimbledon starting this week, it is all about the artificial grass tennis court here at Synthetic Turf Management. So today we are talking synthetic/artificial grass, tennis, Wimbledon and court construction.
Did you know that Wimbledon is the only major tournament to have had the same type of surface since it began all the way back in 1877?
Natural grass is a great tennis court surface (as proven by the sheer length of time Wimbledon has been going on for). However, if you don’t have thousands to spend on maintaining your grass to a good standard, what is your next best option?
The artificial grass tennis court of course!

Did you know that there are many specific types of artificial grass that make it suitable for tennis?
Artificial grass is now manufactured to look and feel like natural grass. The turf that we use is manufactured in Britain and tested under specific ITF standards which it meets. Synthetic is much easier to maintain than natural grass but it performs very similarly; suitable for both professionals and amateurs. Which means that you can feel like you are on the centre court at Wimbledon!
There are a few ways in which we construct our artificial grass tennis courts. Our full on-site consultations can help you decide which install you would need:
