Grass tennis courts benefit from irrigation systems to ensure the surface is at its best throughout the entire season.
The automated tennis court watering system can be programmed to water every day or every other day during the summer season, keeping the grass lush and green and ensuring a top quality playing surface during the season.
Our tennis court watering system will water a doubles tennis court and uses pop-up sports sprinklers located around the perimeter of the tennis court, away from the actual playing surface. The sprinklers are almost completely hidden underground with only the top disc of the sprinkler visible when it is not operating.
Once under pressure, the sprinkler rises out of the ground and waters in a pre-set arc. Corner sprinklers water a 90 degree arc and sprinklers down the long edge of the tennis court water in 180 degree arcs.
Heavy duty underground pipework brings the pressurised water to each sprinkler.
The pressures and flows involved mean that a 1250 litre water storage tank and pump unit are included to operate the system. The pump and tank complies with UK Water Regulations. An automatic controller will allow early morning watering to ensure the court remains playable during the day. The controller can be upgraded at additional cost to allow wi-fi connection and enhanced weather sensitivity.
Our tennis court watering package includes:
- 1,250 litre tanks with booster pump
- Automatic controller with rain sensor over-ride
- Valve box for edge of the court
- Pop-up sprinklers around the perimeter of the court
The tennis court watering system is designed to be installed by someone with competent DIY skills. The tank and pump unit is pre-assembled and tested in our factory before shipping on a pallet. Valve box controls are also pre-assembled for easy installation. Full instructions are included with the package. Generally a landscaper would be involved to remove and backfill the trenches.
