How to spruce up your outdoor school tennis courts for Spring

folder_openCivic & Public Sector, Schools & Education, Sports & Leisure

Tennis is a viral game around the UK, and many schools include it in their PE curriculum. As good weather is needed to play it, tennis is primarily played in the spring and summer months. If you have outdoor tennis courts at your school, now is a great time to consider getting them looking their best.

But what are the best tips to go about sprucing them up?

Repair your security fencing

All schools know how key looking after the children they teach is. This certainly applies to any outdoor sporting areas like the tennis courts your school may have. A great way to make them look better and offer protection to your pupils is to repair any security fencing that has seen better days. If a lot of your existing fencing is damaged or broken, then it may be best to replace the whole lot. Of course, if you do not currently have perimeter fencing around your outdoor tennis courts, then installing it is highly advised.

Make sure any nets are in good order.

Another area that gets a lot of use outside tennis courts is the nets. Over time, this can see them become ripped. This does not look great and can also impact the pupils’ enjoyment of tennis lessons negatively. For these reasons, it is wise to repair any tennis nets you can overwinter when not in use or allocate some of your annual budgets to buy new ones. You will be really impressed with how much better they make your courts look to parents and pupils.

Redo the line markings

A major part of any outdoor tennis court is the line-markings. These help pupils see where the ball should be served and when a shot is out. Tennis courts will usually need marking out every year, and doing this now in time for spring is a good move. If your courts are grass, you should also remember to reseed if needed and give them a good mow before pupils begin using them again.
