Designing the ideal tennis court for your home landscape can take time. You want to make sure that the tennis court is suitable for your play style. You also want to make sure that the tennis court fits your landscape as well as your budget. The design planning stage is the ideal time to look over possible upgrades that would benefit you and your enjoyment of your completed tennis court. Here are three upgrades you should consider and what you need to know about each one.
Retractable Tennis Court Cover
Tennis court covers are something that you may think about, but you may not be sure if they will benefit you in the long run. One of the main benefits to having a tennis court cover is the ability to still play in light rain and heavy sun or heat conditions. The key point holding you back may be the need to manually pull over the cover or remove it. With a retractable tennis court cover, you can either have an electric-powered court cover or a crank style that can easily be put in place or pulled back. You can update the cover further by getting a smartphone-connected cover that allows you to cover the tennis court from your smartphone if the weather changes while you are away from home.
Retractable Tennis Court Windscreens
In some cases, it is not the weather from above that is a problem. Depending on where you live, it might be the wind that causes more issues for you and your tennis game. One of the upgrades you can have done during the tennis court construction is the addition of retractable windscreens. There is a misconception that you need to have a fenced-in tennis court for this upgrade. The truth is that the retractable windscreens can be placed on poles at the corners of an unfenced tennis court to provide wind protection as well as walls to your tennis court. When not in use, they can be retracted, and certain models can be stored until they are needed.
Solar Tennis Court Lighting
Lighting is an important aspect to any tennis court that will be used at night. You can upgrade the lighting as well. Instead of traditional court lighting, you can go with a solar light option. This can be more budget friendly in the long term. Solar lighting can also provide you with more lighting and placement options than a traditional lighting system.
These are only a few of the upgrades you may have available for your tennis court construction project. If you are ready to get started, contact you tennis court construction contractor.
