Har-Tru: the World's Leading Tennis & Sport Court Surface!

Serving Palm Beach, Martin and St Lucie County

If you’re thinking of constructing a Har-Tru or clay tennis court, Professional Tennis Court Services can build it for you! Although it is referred to as clay, Har-Tru is actually composed of crushed stone. This is what makes it such an effective tennis court and sport court surface. It is more durable and more consistent than its European clay court counterparts and is increasingly becoming the surface of choice.

Har-Tru Court Construction Process in Florida

Har-Tru or Hydrocourt construction in Florida begins with excavating, rough grading and compacting the court’s sub-base. This is followed by a unique laser grading procedure that ultimately creates an even playing surface with the correct pitch. Drainage will also be installed under or around the court if necessary to divert potential water problems.

The stone base is constructed with six inches of crushed stone that is laser graded and compacted. An underground Hydrosystem or traditional Har-Tru irrigation system is installed. A layer of screenings is then installed that creates the foundation and helps retain moisture for the final one-inch layer of Har-Tru. Various blends of Har-Tru brand material are used depending the type of irrigation system, but the finished court is a state-of-the-art Har-Tru court.

Lastly, a hardscaping perimeter, that contains the surface and sub-base material, footers for net posts, as well as fence posts and fencing will be installed around the court’s perimeter. To ready the court for play, the finishing touches are added by installing the tennis net and other amenities such as lighting systems, windscreens, paver patios, or walkways.

Why Should I choose a Har-Tru Court?

Har-Tru is made from billion-year-old Pre-Cambrian metabasalt found in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. It is a natural green stone that is extremely hard and angular, two very important qualities when it comes to tennis court construction. The angularity helps the stone particles lock together to form a stable playing surface.

More importantly, the hardness provides exceptional durability. The natural green color is classically clay and instantly recognizable. The stone is crushed, screened, and mixed in the precise proportions necessary to produce a stable playing surface. It is then installed over a porous base of crushed stone aggregate to produce the final product.
