ClayTech Tennis Courts – The best of clay courts and hard courts rolled into one

From the makers of Har-Tru comes a new court in a class all by itself - ClayTech. ClayTech is a high quality, premium court surface that offers the comfort of a clay court with all-weather playability while eliminating the cracking and consequent re-coating required with hard courts.Read More...Read Less...

Perhaps you have heard of ClayTech?  Many still have not.  This court surface has been around for close to 20 years in Europe and nearly 10 years in the States but it is only just beginning to catch on here as the preferred home tennis court.  If you have an existing hard court or are planning new court construction you should definitely take a look.

ClayTech is an all-weather clay court that can be installed on top of an existing hard court in as little as two days.  The surface eliminates the need to repaint every 3-5 years and will bridge many cracks and deficiencies in the substrate.  The product utilizes a specially designed mat that acts as the base for a thin layer of green or red clay or Har-Tru.  Much like a hard court, ClayTech features permanent lines that will occasionally need to be touched up with new paint.

It just got easier to own a clay court.

MAINTENANCE TIPS

The great thing about ClayTech is it requires next to no maintenance
  • 1

    For best playing conditions brush the court and lines just prior to play and then spritz with water.

  • 2

    Most club courts add a bag or two of material every three to six months. Residential courts need material annually at most.

  • 3

    Add white paint to the lines every few years to keep them bright.
