Tennis Court Surfaces


Competition Athletic Surfaces builds, resurfaces and repairs playing courts of all kinds, but the company makes more installations of tennis court surfaces than any other kind.

CAS builds tennis court surfaces indoors and outdoors, on the ground and on the roof. University tennis courts -- the lion's share of CAS projects -- as well as tennis courts for high schools, private clubs, municipal parks and residential backyards form CAS's diverse portfolio.

"Our clients include colleges with big-time tennis programs -- like the University of Tennessee and Vanderbilt," says CAS founder and owner Lee Murray. "A high level of competition means more scrutiny on the surfaces. Our ability to attract this caliber client shows we can produce tennis court surfaces that meet important benchmarks.

"On the flip side, I frequently hear from people saying they don't need a high-end college-type surface. They just want something for their kids to play on. And we are happy to do the backyard court where the kids can learn to play tennis and also enjoy skating and basketball."

For outdoor or indoor hard courts CAS installs the Laykold, Sportmaster and other acrylic systems. Cushioning can be added to make players more comfortable by reducing impact shock and muscle fatigue. Cushioning will increase shock mitigation for better health and longer playing comfort, especially among older players.

CAS is an authorized installer for Sport Court, the world’s largest court builder using module tiles to address cracked hard courts. Sport Court tiles can also be used to build a tennis court surface in unusual settings, like rooftops and other hard-to-reach areas.

Competition Athletic Surfaces' reputation for installing quality tennis court surfaces, as well as making tennis court repair and tennis court resurfacing, was borne out in 2017 when Tennis Industry Magazine honored CAS as the Tennis Court Builder/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, is how his company has operated, and has led to its 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."
