06. Advantage Tennis Court Fencing

Zaun’s tennis court fencing system can withstand heavy use while allowing easy viewing of the on-court action. Unfortunately, chain-link fencing for tennis courts is a classic example of how the lowest cost does not equal the best value. Easily cut with pliers, people gain access to hours by snipping the fence, encouraging the courts’ inappropriate use, and making them an eyesore. Chain-link also deforms quickly, especially when people lean against it in between play.

Why choose Zaun tennis court fencing?

Advantage Tennis court fencing system is ideally positioned behind the serving line and uses a 42.85mm x 200mm twin wire mesh. Resulting in an extremely durable court perimeter and enhancing the area in which it is situated. The mesh aperture also means that there is no chance of the ball passing through the fence, a problem that can occur behind the serving line with more common 50mm x 200mm mesh.

Advantage Tennis has been developed to overcome the rattle that so many residents object to. Every 200mm to the lower 1.2m high impact area ensures minimum movement between the panel and post with fixings. Furthermore, each fixing uses a synthetic EPDM insert to insulate the panel from the post and reduce noise by circa 29%.


All Zaun posts/panels/gates and painted auxiliary components (for example, clamp-bars, slide bolts etc.) benefit from a protective zinc layer and electrostatically applied polyester powder coating to BS1722 p16. Care is taken with pre-treatment to ensure sound adhesion between the zinc and paint layers. In a UK C1 environment, as defined in ISO 12944 p2, this should ensure a useful life expectancy of the fence of at least 15-20 years. Life expectancy in all environments can be extended by maintaining the fencing with regular washing. Useful life will be reduced if the fencing is damaged. Any coating damage should be repaired to reduce the effect on useful life.

Enhanced painting systems such as marine coatings are also available for improved life expectancy in C2-C5M environments.

Posts are available in different lengths to accommodate panel heights and ground conditions. Additional variations are also available:


It is recommended that a safety channel or capping strip is applied to protect people from the sharp edges of the mesh for low-level fences.
