It started with clay court maintenance equipment
I am a German national and have lived in the UK for over 20 years. I joined my local club in London shortly after moving here. When my tennis club upgraded some of its courts from astro turf to artificial clay in 2016, the members loved playing this surface! The clay courts courts always booked up first.
Because clay surfaces are relatively new in the UK, there was very little advice available on maintenance and it was difficult to find a decent selection of good quality clay court maintenance equipment. A business idea was born!
Red clay tradition in Germany
Germany has a long tradition of natural red clay tennis court surfaces. This court surface with a top layer of crushed brick, is a complex and delicate surface that requires intensive maintenance. You must roll to preserve flatness, water before play to bind the top layer and drag mat after play. The artificial clay, most often installed in the UK, is less maintenance intensive but you do need some specialist maintenance equipment to keep your court in good condition.
