Indoor Tennis Court


Competition Athletic Surfaces builds more tennis courts ‐ both indoor and outdoor ‐ than any other playing court surfaces.

Facilities featuring CAS indoor tennis court surfaces range from The Goodfriend Tennis Center at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville to Manker Patten Tennis Center in Chattanooga to Vanderbilt's Currey Tennis Center and Metro Nashville's Hadley Park Community Center.

For indoor hard court surfaces CAS installs Laykold, Sportmaster and other acrylic systems -- the same products used in its outdoor courts.

As with outdoor courts, comfort cushioning can be added to the indoor court surface to reduce impact shock and muscle fatigue and promote better health and longer playing comfort.

"The surfaces we install for indoor tennis courts are exactly the same as what we install in outdoor courts," says Lee Murray, founder and owner of CAS. "And that includes indoor tennis court resurfacing and indoor tennis court repair."

There are special challenges to working indoors, Murray points out.

Buildings may be cooled by air conditioning or window fans, so CAS installers can't predict drying time until they start the project. "That calls for flexibility in scheduling and planning," Murray says.

Working access to buildings is typically more difficult than to outdoor court sites, he goes on.

"Outdoors we can usually park close to the site. In contrast, inside we have doors, walkways and hallways to negotiate getting materials in and out. It takes a little extra care to get our work done without being disruptive, and our guys are great at providing the extra effort."

The extra effort pays off. Pros and other top-tier players often train and teach on indoor courts. "The level of scrutiny for the indoor surfaces is high, so the surfaces have to be right or the players will eventually complain," Murray says. "Our indoor tennis court installations reflect the quality of our work."

The quality of CAS work was recognized in 2017 when Tennis Industry Magazine honored CAS as the Tennis CourtBuilder/Contractor of the Year.

In announcing the Champions of Tennis award, TI said:

"The old axiom, 'The more things change, the more they stay the same,' might be especially apropos for tennis court construction. While construction techniques and surfacing materials have evolved, the sport itself holds true to tradition.

"This combination of evolution and tradition, says Lee Murray, president of Competition Athletic Surfaces, is how his company has operated, and has led to it being TI’s 2017 Builder/ Contractor of the Year.

"Murray went into the sealcoating and paving industry after college and migrated into tennis and track. Four decades later, he is still creating the best athletic surfaces possible."

"You all have made a 20-year old indoor facility look new again! Not only has it been a big positive for our members but our new surface has already attracted quality student/athletes to the Austin Peay tennis program. You will be a big reason for our team’s improvement. I look forward to working with your professional staff again!
