Wimbledon starts this week so it’s time for you to dust of those tennis rackets you probably bought a couple of years ago in a phase after watching Wimbledon.
Wimbledon is home to 18 Championship courts which all need a huge amount of maintenance in order for them to assist the players in their match. The grass is a specialist turf called Perennial Ryegrass which has enhanced durability meaning it can survive during the games. The 28 strong team of ground staff have to make sure the grass is kept at 8mm in height every day – the soil also needs to be kept at the correct hardness to ensure the ball bounces correctly.
Now if all of the above sounds a bit too much like hard work – you could just buy Artificial Grass for your tennis court. We have a range of grasses that can be used for tennis courts and other sports surfaces. Get in touch for a quote today.
