After the winter period, by the early spring sun, the need for tennis courts begins to actualize. Of course, the situation  in which we find them, usually at first glance, looks very sad and disappointing. However, we should not despond, but need to turn on the "healing" of your pet. In this article I will try to make a chronological summary of all the work that needs to be done.

1) Cleaning of the court

There should be carefully cleaned  the whole court, from all the mischief done by the mother nature. It includes the removal of foliage, branches and twigs, conifer  needles, and everything caused during the winter period.

2) Damage assessment on the court

Pass over the field and if you do not have the "eye" for dents and depressions, use the rod, wooden or aluminium, which should be as longer  as possible (3-4 meters), because you'll get more accurate assessment results of the required amount of Tenisit. From experience I know that it is precisely this activity quite a big mystery to many people, but at the same time I do not mean on professional  janitors, so I'll keep a little of this activity. Let us go on step by step. If we know that from one cubic meter, we can fill in one hundred surfaces of one square meter, one centimeter high, it will be very simple, by moving the rod over the field, to spot the average depressions. By the  sum of the squares of these depressions, and their average depths, by a very simple mathematical operations we can calculate the required amount of Tenisit.

3) Tenisit Infill

Since each a janitor (tennis courts maintainer) has its own method, I will describe two of them, for the beginners the friendliest  methods:

a) Smaller depressions infill without the court ragging

First of all it is necessary to know, that Tenisit will very difficultly binds with the ground unless you do the following: From the dips caused for example by the  running shoes heel, it is necessary to remove grain that is usually "placed" on such a distinguished place, because it has a very poor ability of binding, since in its composition it has not enough grains below one millimeter, or brick dust, which has the function of binding of  two materials.

After this activity, continue with optimal wetting of the area, which guarantees as that filled Tenisit will quality bind (glue).

b)  Treatment of large areas

Larger areas, due to better bonding of two layers of material, you can lightly roughen, mop (by toothed rake), although this is not a requirement. The secret of bonding of two Tenisit layers lies in both, the optimum wetting of the area, and

the elimination of crushed stone (2-3 mm grain).

Rough spreading of Tenisit is done by "eye" after which, I suggest, to crop by the "the above-mentioned"  rod. When filling it is necessary to add Tenisit in wide swings of a shovel, since you will thus annul depressions, which remain due to coefficient of Tenisit subsidence during the rolling, which is about 30%.

If there is any ambiguity regarding the maintenance of tennis courts, send a request, so you will get in a very short time, I hope, a satisfactory answer.
