Because they are exposed to the outside elements, over time, hard courts suffer damage such as cracks and uneven wear. This creates an unsafe playing surface that requires a court resurfacing.

A clay court will never crack, which is one of the major types of damage asphalt courts endure.

Asphalt tennis court to har-tru clay court conversion process.
Sport Surfaces can convert your old asphalt tennis court into a Har-Tru (clay) court. We do this using our exclusive dual-grade laser conversion system.
Sport Surfaces specializes in the conversion of hard courts (asphalt or concrete) to Har-Tru/clay courts. Let us convert your existing hard court to a sprinkler irrigated or subsurface irrigated Hydro Court. We have a dual-laser based process of accurately converting a hard court to a Har-Tru court with unparalleled precision
Converting a hard court to a har-tru court with sprinkler irrigation.
The first step we take in converting your asphalt tennis court to a clay court is mapping your existing court. This is performed with our dual grade laser in order to identify the current slope. After, we build a retaining on top of your existing court in order to hold the rock and clay in place. This step is done with the assistance of our laser grading equipment.
We then proceed to change the slope of the court. A typical hard court is sloped 1″ in 10′ while the slope of a Har-Tru court is normally 1″ in 30′. Crushed concrete or lime rock is installed over the court surface to adjust the court slope.
After extensive laser grading with our dual grade tennis court conversion laser, we apply approximately 3″ of concrete screening. It is then carefully laser graded onto the new tennis court surface.
Once our technicians are satisfied with the precision of the surface, 1″ of Har-tru (clay) material is laser graded. Har-Tru is comprised of a natural green crushed stone found in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. The next step is to brush and groom the top dressing to ensure an extremely precise slope. Next, the fiberglass reinforced concrete block curb is installed.
We do this within the existing fence line to contain the fill material, concrete screening sand, and Har-Tru. A sprinkler irrigation system is also installed to provide moisture to the court.

Benefits of a har-tru tennis court.
- The court does not crack, and repairs are generally quite easy and budget-friendly.
- Because of its ability to retain moisture and breathe even in extremely hot temperatures, it presents a cooler court surface. Approximately 10-15 degrees cooler than playing on a an asphalt court.
- Slower ball speed than on a hard surface, allowing the player to have more time to plan and set up their shot.
- Fast drying surface after rainfall for those who want to get right back to their game. Games can continue during a light rainfall, as the court remains safe for play.
- Less impact to the body, greatly reducing common tennis injuries to the lower extremities. It’s crucial that they minimize the risk of injuries to their bodies. About 50% of all tennis players will have an injury during their lives.
- Injuries are usually caused by hard court surfaces, and the wrong footwear. A clay surface allows for the player to slide and quickly access control of their body’s movements. This reduces hard impact and shock, allowing for shock absorption for the bones and joints.
- Mental toughness, patience, strategy, and stamina are immensely improved for the player’s overall game.
- Can be installed directly on top of a hard court quite quickly and easily.
- Environmentally friendly, made from natural materials that leave no poisonous chemicals or waste.
- Low maintenance with a few simple guidelines. Proper care can increase the lifespan of the court.
- Clay courts are porous surfaces that can decrease runoff and soil erosion, allowing for more installation locations. Zoning restriction compliant in many areas.
