Traditionally, tennis court perimeter fences have been the rectangular “box like” fencing enclosures. This traditional approach is not essential for play and there are alternatives to consider.
Unless there are security or adjacent hazards a high perimeter fence completely surrounding the playing area is not essential. The fence height depends to some degree on the tennis court’s surface bounce characteristics.
There are a number of alternative fencing profiles to suit local viewing, aesthetic and economic reasons.
Whilst tennis court complex fencing can be an imposing structure, it is possible to blend into the local environment by choosing an appropriate colour for the fence.
Furthermore there are a number of other items to keep in mind in relation to your fencing, such as; wind loads, future impacts on the fence and the ever present issue of maintenance and repair.
