its just got easier to own a clay court
Q & A's
Why is clay so good to play & learn on ? How is your All-Weather surface different from other "artificial clay" courts in the UK ?
  • Nothing else on the market is like it. Har-Tru synthetic is a needlepunch carpet infilled with real Har-Tru or European clay, so you are actually playing on Clay, yet have the benefit of all-year-round play. Most "artificial clay" you will have seen is actually red short pile artificial turf infilled with coloured sand or quartz granules; very similar to artifical grass.
What daily maintenance is required to your All-Weather surface?
  • Very little. For best playing conditions brush the court and lines just prior to play. A sprinkler sysytem is installed for ease, either manually adjusted or on a set timing pattern. Most club courts add a bag or two of material every three to six months.
ITF rated ?
  • Of course, category 1 (Slow).
I've heard real clay courts require a lot of maintenance ?
  • Not so, this is a myth created to sell more "artificial clay". Generally as little as 10 minutes per court each day involving brushing, watering & occasional rolling. Clay is a natural product, so annual Spring reconditioning is necessary.
So, you're authorised by Har-Tru ?
  • Absolutely, all of our installations come with a warranty. We have been Har-Tru's sole UK representative since 1994 and have installed many Har-Tru clay courts throughout the UK. If other companies claim to be, it's not so.
