Design and Build Your Paddle Tennis Court
Paddle tennis is a sport that has many characteristics oftraditional tennis with a little ping-pong thrown in. However, the court is about one-quarter of the size of a tennis court with a lower net. In this article, we’re going to walk you through designing and building the perfect paddle tennis court.
Designing Your Paddle Tennis Court
Installing your own paddle tennis court can provide you access to your favorite sport any time you wish. First, you need to design the court.
Your court should be 50 feet long and 20 feet wide, with a service line 3 feet from the baseline. Many courts on the west coast have a restraint line 12 feet from and parallel to the net. The entire court should be surrounded by a fence that is 12 feet high. The net that spans the middle of the court should be 31 inches high.
Materials Used to Build a Paddle Tennis Court
You can use the same materials to build your paddle tennis court that are used to build a traditional tennis court.
The surface of the court should be rough in texture to prevent players from slipping. It may be constructed of artificial turf or acrylic on top of asphalt or concrete. You can choose from a variety of colors for an acrylic surface depending on your preferences. Paddle tennis is often played outside in the winter, so a heater may be necessary under the surface in colder regions.
The 12-feet tall fence that surrounds the court should be made of woven wire. The wire should be taut, allowing balls to bounce off the walls and remain in play.
