Construction of your tennis court is only the first part of the job.

Great looking, well performing, long lasting tennis courts are the result of regular maintenance.
We clean, maintain and repair all surfaces, and can supply you with nets, sand and all the equipment you need.
So you can spend your time enjoying your court and extend the life of your court.


All sports surfaces collect dirt and vegetation, when you add moisture you will start to see discolouration then algae and moss. E.T. Richards has a unique range of cleaning equipment and knowledge to return most surfaces to a near new. We can then put in place a regular maintenance program, working with you, so that you can enjoy your recreation and extend the life of your tennis court surface.

We have rejuvenated many tennis courts, bringing them back to life so that they are now easily maintained.


From basic repairs to complete regeneration, repairs are a speciality of ET Richards. We can repair any type of sport surface including:

  • splitting seams
  • lifting lines
  • net post and winders and posts dividers and perimeter nets and cables


Wonderfully comfortable playing surfaces, red porous or clay courts require regular maintenance to stay in good shape. E.T. Richards specialise in refurbishing and re-topping these surfaces including plastic line replacement and repairs.

No matter how well built your court is, eventually it’s going to show its age. In a hard court, that might mean cracks, worn spots or uneven areas. A soft court (clay or fast-dry) might have areas where surfacing is thin or irregular.

Problem is, you’ve asked for advice from a few of your colleagues who went through this not too long ago with their courts. It turns out that one person’s courts needed recoating. Another needed an overlay, while the third required total reconstruction.

How do you know what your court really needs?

How do you avoid being oversold and get the best value for your money?

Basically, say tennis court builders, it helps to have an understanding of how a tennis court is constructed and how it wears.


Synthetic grass courts need regular maintenance to ensure the pile remains upright and free to move so the court performs at its best. In an east Australian climate where shade, leaves and water provide ideal conditions for moss and algae, your court will get dirty but with regular servicing, (usually twice per year), these surfaces will stay in great condition.

E.T. Richards offer a variety of cleaning and maintenance systems for sand filled and short pile synthetic grass surfaces including; spraying, brushing, vacuuming, filtering, washing, re-sanding and conditioning treatment.
