These tennis courts are built by completing the stages such as infrastructure, iron, wire mesh, lighting, artificial turf carpet laying and tennis net installation. Court structure is one of the main differences between padel and tennis. The padel tennis court is much smaller and is surrounded by walls, which play an important role during the game. Because the players bounce the ball through these walls.
According to the rules set by the international authorities, the padel court is 10 meters wide and 20 meters long. The tennis court is also rectangular but measures 23.78 meters long, 8.23 meters wide in singles and 10.97 meters in doubles. The lines are white and there are no walls on the sides. In tennis, the center is 0.914 meters, the sides are 1.07 meters, in padel tennis the middle height of the net is 0.88 meters, the tip height is 0.92 meters.These tennis courts can be made smaller in amateur use areas, except for 18m x 36m dimensions. Our company has special tennis carpet models for padel tennis courts. Artificial grass tennis carpet models are available from 15mm pile to 30mm air. However, the 26mm carpet model is generally preferred for tennis artificial turf carpets.
How is the Padel Tennis Court Construction Process Progress?
Padel tennis court construction stages; concrete casting, iron works, wire mesh, lighting, synthetic grass carpet flooring and finally tennis net installation. During the infrastructure works, the floor plan to be made as a tennis court is leveled. The foundation was dug for the beam formwork that would go around the entire perimeter of the site. The mesh is then made using 8 and 12 Q iron bars for the beam. In order to connect the main pillars of the fence to be positioned within the perimeter beam, 3” anchor pipes are placed on the scale at regular intervals. Then, ready-mixed concrete in the form of BS 20 is poured into the perimeter beam formwork.
Drainage channels are opened to establish a drainage system. The reason for this is to prevent the accumulation of water in the field. When the drainage system in the field is completed with the appropriate material, these channels are closed and reset with the ground. The floor of the court is covered with gravel filling material. In the construction of a padel tennis court with synthetic turf ground, concrete can be poured on the ground as well as asphalt application. Ready-mixed concrete is poured on the gravel and polished thoroughly.
After all these stages, the installation of the perimeter poles and wire fence is started. Vertical pole pipes are welded to the anchor pipes placed on the line, and the support pipes are connected to these pipes as upper, middle and horizontal. Then reinforcement is applied to the horizontal pipes diagonally from the four corners. Vertical reinforcement pipes are laid at regular intervals on the vertical pipes located on all four sides of the site.
Lighting poles with ladders are placed on the long sides of the tennis court. Metal-formed projectors with 400 W lighting capacity are placed on the lighting poles. The projectors are made operational by laying the electrical infrastructure and assembly in a way that can safely meet the energy needs of the project. Considering the compliance of the field with the standards, the most suitable points for the net rod are mutually determined. After the synthetic grass carpet coating is applied, the poles are fixed in place. Then, 4×4 cm mesh and PVC coated wire mesh is stretched to the poles around the court and the whole field is fenced. In addition, these fences are strengthened with the help of steel ropes.
What is the Importance of the Ground in the Construction of Padel Tennis Courts?
A padel court, whose rear walls are made of glass up to 3 meters high, is 20 meters long and 10 meters wide, while the glass side walls end after 4 meters. The rest of the court is closed using a metallic net up to 4 meters high. In the middle of the playing field is a net that divides the field into two. It has a maximum height of 88 cm in the center, rising to 92 cm on each side. These areas are then divided by a line in the middle and another line three meters from the back wall marks the service area. Grass carpet application is made on the concrete floor. Double-layered polyurethane glue-applied cloth is placed on the joints of the artificial turf carpet. Court lines are cut in white or yellow in line with the wishes and needs of the project owner and placed on the field in accordance with international norms.
