You’ve finally decided to build a tennis court on your property—congratulations! This is definitely a worthwhile investment. Now it’s time to start thinking about what color scheme best suits you.
Of course, the specific color scheme you pick for your tennis court won’t necessarily change playing conditions. Meaning, there aren’t particular colors that will magically make you hit harder in matches or enhance your footwork. Either you like super bright colors, or you prefer more traditional tennis court colors. There are pros and cons to both, but the choice is entirely up to you. However, it’s important to make fully conscious choices when aiming for the desired color scheme. Here’s what you should know before choosing the right color scheme for your tennis court.
Common Tennis Court Colors
Before selecting a color scheme, it’s helpful to know standard tennis court colors so you can make informed decisions about what’s ideal for your court. Four traditional and popular tennis court colors are:
These colors are usually combined in twos: one color for the play area and another for the outer boundaries. Materials added on top of the paint, like resin-based sealers, make colors rich and vibrant.
Consider Environmental Factors
Environmental factors—specifically weather and light—can affect how colors are perceived. It’s critical to examine the surrounding environment in which you plan to lay your tennis court. The sun can create a robust glaring effect on lighter colors, making it more difficult for players to see the ball. Lighter colors also get dirtier faster, so you may need to maintain and clean it regularly if you plan on constructing a community tennis court. Conversely, darker colors tend to attract and absorb heat. If you don’t mind breaking a serious sweat, then certainly don’t hesitate to use darker colors.
Choose Colors That Will Give Your Court a Wow Factor
Choosing strategic color schemes for your tennis court may be cost-efficient. This is especially true if you’re building a court in the community or at your business. Brighter colors are known to stick out and grasp attention better than duller colors. Therefore, if you want your court to attract others, use enticing colors. On the other hand, if your tennis court will be surfaced at your own home, you can pick a color scheme that matches your preferences. For instance, perhaps you have a favorite sports team and want to use their colors as inspiration for your tennis court design.
Copy the Pros
You know what they say: “Do it like the pros.” While choosing a color scheme with a “wow factor” may be more relevant to your investment, it’s also essential to consider typical colors used by pro tennis leagues, facilities, and tournaments like the U.S. Open. Different variations of blue, from dark blues to light blues, are the primary colors applied to professional tennis courts. Using shades of blue has less to do with aesthetics and more to do with visibility, as it’s easier to see a vivid yellow ball against darker colors than it is against lighter ones.
