Unlike many asphalt surfaces, your tennis or basketball court will come under a lot of scrutiny. Due to the nature of the material and the comparatively low-impact activities taking place on the surface, you’ll want to take extra care to ensure your asphalt athletic court stays clean, consistent, and smooth throughout the years.
A routine inspection is a great place to start. While there are plenty of ways to protect your asphalt athletic court from damage, vigilance and attentive care are your best allies.
Before each use, inspect the surface of the asphalt court, sweeping, vacuuming, or using a compressed air blower to remove particles from the surface will help prevent compaction on the surface.
Furthermore, you should check for erosion once per week even during winter months. Drainage problems, cracks, and any wear and tear around fence and net posts are signs of erosion beneath the surface of the asphalt. Any plant growth around the perimeter of your court should be removed and sterilized to prevent root growth and natural intrusion.
Most importantly, any small patches or crack repairs should be performed as soon as they’re detected to prevent further development into larger-scale issues.
