Certain types of sport require heavy-duty tarmac and surfacing solutions. As a result, many sports clubs and schools opt for macadam sports surfaces. With sports such as tennis, basketball and more, the solidity of the playing surface and army added bounce is an absolute must. What's more, sports clubs will always be looking for cost-effective surfacing to last years and years of regular use. Anti-slip resistance and bounce protection are ideal qualities in all manner of surfacing for sports.
But where do you start when it comes to finding the ideal macadam sports surface? How much should you pay? Does tarmac work well with all sports? Don’t worry. We’re here to answer all your questions and more. Read on to learn more about how tarmacadam surfacing could make a huge difference to your regular users.
Macadam surfacing is a resistant, protective surfacing standard which is widely sought-after by schools and clubs alike. Tarmac can do a lot in terms of resistance and wear and tear protection; it is also fast becoming the optimum choice for many organisations. It’s not difficult to understand why!
But why should you choose tarmac over anything else? Read on to learn more.
Porous macadam surfacing leads the way when it comes to drainage on-court. One of the major problems sports courts and surfaces face is extensive flooding and water damage. Water pooling and constant sinkage can allow surfaces of all natures to crack and spoil. This, in time, can not only make them unsightly and unappealing but also unsafe. What's more, they will also be hardly the most efficient or effective courts to play on.
Therefore, applying tarmac to your sports court means you get an appealing, effective and hard-wearing system which could help to revolutionise how your visitors and customers see your club or grounds. It could make all the difference for you and your regular visitors moving forward!
If your existing sports surface or court is in need of a little TLC or a complete resurfacing, macadam is a fantastic choice to make. This cost-effective, hard-wearing material can be used to resurface or coat over existing tarmac or court systems with ease. While it may be tempting to simply fill in old patches and areas in your court that are in need of attention, it makes more sense to completely renovate from scratch. After all, there’s nothing more appealing than a brand new court of sports patch to head out to.

Macadam construction is, in fact, a fairly simple process, though it takes the right tools, care and attention to get right. We are experienced contractors and are always confident in our ability to breathe new life into any court or sports space for any purpose.
We start by laying a solid sub base foundation so that your surfacing has a robust underlay. The surfacing is created by mixing tar and stones before pouring out. Letting it dry, set and cure can take time. Once it’s ready, however, it is simply a case of applying any paint markings and anti-slip technology you desire. We include all of these services as part of the same package – all you have to do is ask!
Cleaning and maintaining this surface after construction is simple and shouldn't require much of your attention on a regular basis. We merely advise to keep courts clean and clear and to occasionally brush and pressure wash your courts. While it is extraordinarily resistant, it can also fall prey to algae and other types of destructive growth, which means spraying a chemical solution may be recommended.
We would recommend cleaning the court professionally annually. Our team can offer great prices for this, so please get in touch for more information. We would also recommend having the court painted every 2-3 years depending on usage. This will dramatically enhance the overall look and play of the court and improve slip resistance.
