More tennis courts are being converted to clay court systems than ever before in the history of tennis. That’s because clay court tennis brings players more enjoyment and fewer injuries at every stage of life. Clay courts allow tennis players to slide, which means they can play for as long and as often as they like without overstressing the knees, back and lower extremities.

Now there’s a new clay court surface that blends the sliding feature of clay with the easier, more cost-effective maintenance feature of a hard court – ClayTech clay courts. Compare the features of ClayTech courts and hard courts.

Clay Court vs Hard Court
Reduces injuries 85% more injuries than clay
Lessens the severity of injuries Repeated, excessive impact exacerbates injuries
Sliding reduces the stress of court impact More stress on back, knees, and ankles
Allows frequent play Body needs recovery time


ClayTech’s natural clay top layer and synthetic polypropylene membrane create an attractive, uniform, sliding court surface. Maintenance requires nothing more than a simple sweep. Watering is optional.The clay-topped surface prevents holes and cracks and the polypropylene membrane contributes to a very long life. Another maintenance benefit is that the perimeter lines are painted in place when the surface is installed. This makes the lines easily last for three years.
