– Pat Hanssen, President, Har-Tru, LLC


In 1931, a contractor named Henry Alexander Robinson (HAR) engineered a new clay court surface using American stone first mined in Pennsylvania. The surface had a true (TRU) green color and ball bounce. Har-Tru courts caught on quickly with clubs and homeowners — and a tennis legacy was born.

Today, we manufacture the same classic clay courts, as well as high-performance acrylic hard courts, hybrid surfaces, and all the equipment and accessories that make a court complete.

Our products are known for their exceptional quality, and our people for their extensive knowledge and experience. We take pride in our long history of making court products that elevate the game of tennis.

Har-Tru works with trained independent contractors, authorized builders, and experienced installers. We advise owners, clubs, and other professionals on the latest court technology, construction materials and installation methods.

Our goal is to be the first and best choice for every type of court construction. Our industry-leading support and resources are available during all phases of purchasing, installing, and owning a Har-Tru court.

At the Boar's Head Resort in Charlottesville, Va., Har-Tru green clay courts sit next to a set of Har-Tru Sports Coatings acrylic hard courts.
