The most innovate tennis surface of the decade….Patented across the world
DESIGNED, DEVELOPED, TESTED AND MADE IN AUSTRALIA
This is the best synthetic clay court in the world. That’s how professional tennis players describe Classic Clay® It has the look, feel and plays like natural clay with controlled slide, low ball bounce and pace rated “slow” by the I.T.F. Compared to real clay, there is a fraction of the maintenance cost, no water needed, play is possible during rain and in all seasons and none of the dirt associated with “clay” tennis courts.
Classic Clay® is the world’s first and only patented “waterless” artificial clay tennis court surface, designed to play and slide just like a clay court whilst offering a consistent ball bounce and ball marks are easily identified.
Huge water savings
Traditional clay courts require watering. Not so with Classic Clay®. It is a true “waterless” surface. With water restrictions in place in many countries across the world, Classic Clay® offers the best solution for those who want a traditional clay surface, but have little or no water. Classic Clay® does not suffer frost heave so can be laid in areas that experience extreme cold climates, equally as it can be laid in areas with extreme heat, such as Dubai. There is much less down time in wet as play can continue during light rain and return soon after heavy downpours as the surface is not damaged when played on damp. Classic Clay® courts are the fastest drying courts on the market.
Increased club membership
Installing Classic Clay™ courts at clubs attracts new members and certainly has been proven to retain membership levels at club with Classic Clay® courts. Classic Clay® is perfect for training juniors and equally beneficial for seniors, offering a comfort surface that is easy on knees, backs and joints.
The colour remains rich and consistent across the entire surface as both the surface and the infill are UV stabilised and tested for the harshest of weather conditions.
Mineral Infill – Envirofill®
The mineral in-ﬁll is a consistent size and treated with anti-microbial inhibitors to offer a safe alternative for players and the environment. The micro size of the particles are large enough so they do not become airborne, eliminating dust into club rooms and any discolouration of clothing and shoes. Neighbours of many clubs have welcomed the installation of Classic Clay™ as there is virtually no dust and dirt being blown from courts in windy conditions.
Permaline® raised lines
The Classic Clay™ system incorporates the Permaline® patented raised lines. The white court lines are raised (approximately 2mm) above the binder surface to act as a levelling guide for the mineral in-ﬁll and remain visible when groomed. In-built lines are comprised of the same material as the binder layer, providing a consistent ball bounce with no tripping hazards as experienced with line tapes and other systems.
