Top 5 Ways to Tell if Your Hard Court Needs Resurfacing

Here at 10-S Tennis Supply, we know the thought of resurfacing your court can be daunting, and you might not know if it’s entirely necessary.  Have no fear – we have developed a list of red-flags to help you make the right decision!  As time goes on, the luster begins to fade on your once brand new tennis, basketball, Pickleball or shuffleboard court.  So, how can you tell if the time has come to resurface your asphalt or concrete court? We are here to help!

Top signs your hard court needs to be resurfaced:

  1. Cracks and root damage are growing by the day
  2. Water stays on the court for hours after a rain
  3. Mold and mildew are starting to take over your court
  4. Paint is faded to the point you can see the blacktop or concrete underneath
  5. Lines are disappearing into the surface – you can’t tell if a ball is in or out

If any of the above sounds like your court’s current situation – or your courts look more like the “Before” image than the “After” image, it’s time to resurface!

For those “Do It Yourselfers” out there who want to tackle the resurfacing project at your facility, 10-S Tennis Supply can provide you with the tools and materials to get the job done right.  In fact, we have two primary products you should consider for repairing cracks and low areas – NovaCaulk and NovaBond.

  1. I had no idea that resurfacing a tennis court could make such a huge difference. I know that I get frustrated not being able to tell if the ball is in or out so it’s really important that the lines are repainted often. If your court reaches this point, it’s definitely time for some repairs. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for mentioning that water staying in your tennis court for a while after it rains is a sign that you need resurfacing. My kids all play tennis very avidly, and I want to make sure that our court stays in good condition so they can practice at peak performance. I noticed that there were some big puddles that remained after it stopped raining for most of the day. Since that’s a sign that you need resurfacing, maybe I should have a professional come and take a look and get that fixed.
