7. Testing and Commissioning

Printer friendly version
It is very difficult to properly test courts when they are complete, but obviously the following tests should be carried out
  • Dimensional tests to 2
  • Slope/ Drainage tests to 5
  • Bounce tests - to ensure that bounce is even throughout court and and that there are no spots of uneven bouncing
  • Player testing
It should be borne in mind that new artificial turf courts may take a few months or even a year to bed in and may require application/removal of sand to ensure that they are playing correctly.
