Classic Clay

cc1cc2

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.

Colour consistency

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.

A FAST GARDEN MAKEOVER WITH LONG-TERM BENEFITS

For almost eighteen years we’ve lived in a house that I thought had no yard.

Our family, including two sons and a dog named Boss, live close to the beach, which is awesome, but it means the land size is small. Think postage stamp and you’d be close.

As our house is set back from the street, we have a front garden and no back yard, just a paved courtyard with clothesline.

This was fine until the kids (and dog) came along, and I’ve been yearning for a yard ever since. Just somewhere they could kick a ball around would be wonderful.

Even before the house, it’s our front garden that you see as you enter through our front gate. Your eyes fall on a cobblestone stencilled concrete driveway (bit daggy) with off street parking space and single garage. An unruly Murraya hedge demands your attention next and there’s a small front porch. Finally your eyes find a small lawn area with a couple of mature palm trees which now resemble poles reaching to the sky.

JARRYD HAYNE QUITS NRL FOR NFL: AUSTRALIAN NFL LEGEND COLIN SCOTTS BACKS HAYNE’S AMERICAN DREAM

Colin Scotts was a former Australian Schoolboy rugby union player and the first Aussie to win an NFL scholarship, going on to play for the Arizona Cardinals — and while he backed Hayne to follow his dream he also had a warning for the work he has ahead of him.

“It’s the most intense, complex explosive game in the world,” Scotts told Fox Sports News.

“You put that fibreglass helmet on and everything changes. You start hitting 140-150kg men that can do Olympic speed. [Hayne] has no idea what he’s walking into.

Classic Clay is the first and the world s only patented waterless artificial clay tennis court surface, designed to play and slide just like a natural clay tennis court.

Classic Clay has been developed to be respected, maintained and played with clay court etiquette. Clay tennis court play is desired by many and as one of the world s Grand Slam tournament surfaces, is widely sought and preferred as a training surface for the elite tennis player. Until the development of Classic Clay (which created a new classification in the ITF surface guide) players only choice was natural clay, which although when playing at its peak is an amazing surface, presents many problems to the court owner and players alike Natural clay is expensive to build, to maintain and to annually rejuvenate and also is unplayable during rain and winter seasons.
