The finest sports and tennis court surfaces for every purpose
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SURFACE - OUR RECOMMENDATIONS
AMSS is part of En Tout which provides different tennis court playing surfaces and multi-use games areas for home or tennis club use. They offer a range of features and benefits in terms of court life, maintenance and suitability for the games you want to play and the ability and age of the players.
For home use, we recommend either Savanna which is soft, durable and the most advanced synthetic grass tennis court surface available, or Pladek, an excellent all-around tennis surface for those who prefer a hard court. These two surfaces offer home users a great combination of lower maintenance and value for money.
Our other surfaces are more suited to use by tennis clubs of those who have more specialist requirements.
Anglia and Midland Sports Surfaces offer a range of six superb sports surfaces. We help clients to understand which surface best suits their needs and their budget.
Pladek is an acrylic painted porous Macadam tennis court that plays at a medium pace. But just what makes the Pladek court such a universally popular surface with users in every sector of the sport - ranging from tennis clubs through to home-owners, educational establishments and beyond? The answer is in the way your Pladek court is designed and constructed, the way we at Anglia and Midland take care of so many often overlooked yet vital details of tennis court design and - above all - in the way it plays.
Sporturf is a polypropylene Macadam court that provides a similarly paced surface to Pladek but offers better grip when damp and more effective cushioning. Sporturf has permanent inlaid lines. It is a good choice for experienced players and beginners. All this with installation time cut to a bare minimum and maintenance as simple as Pladek. Sporturf is ideal for multi-use installations.
Tenniturf is a medium to fast synthetic grass tennis court that is
ideally suited to the serve and volley tennis player. The tennis court's pace can be adjusted by variation of the quantity of its sand infill and the length of the tufts. We bring all our high-quality consultancy, design and construction skills to Tenniturf tennis courts.
Subject to a site survey, it can also be laid on a suitable existing macadam surface and naturally, we will be delighted to advise you.
We have developed the Savanna court into what is probably the most advanced synthetic tennis surface on the market. Savanna is a soft and durable tennis surface. Its specialist fibre construction gives increased cushioning under foot and consistent ball bounce. It dries quickly and plays at the same medium-fast pace - wet or dry.
Omniclay is the ITF-approved, British manufactured, clay-style performance tennis surface that looks and plays just like a traditional surface. Just like clay, it offers a slow to medium surface speed. The sand-dressed surface looks and performs like clay - but has a much lower maintenance cost than a traditional surface. Omniclay's engineered porosity systems allows all-year round usage. Courts are supplied with inlaid lines.
Matchplay is the newest addition to our range. Matchplay courts provide true ball bounce for all levels of playing skill. The excellent ball pace, slip and sliding properties provide a perfect surface on which to play, combined with superior wear resistance. Their excellent UV weather resistant properties make a court for indoor and outdoor use. The high performance, seamless surfaces are non-porous, and therefore hygienic and easy to clean, although not ideal for private tennis courts.
Planning consent for tennis courts
Under normal circumstances, the construction of a tennis court does not require planning permission in the gardens behind a private house. The planning rules for tennis courts come under and are specifically mentioned in the general rules for outbuildings which state that an enclosure below a height of three metres does not require planning consent.
There are just six reasons why you would need [planning permission for a tennis court.
1 The house is listed.
2 Permitted development rights have been removed.
3 The house is in an area of outstanding natural beauty or national park.
4 Significant civil engineering works are required.
5 It would be more than 50% of the garden,
6 It is not in the garden.
