Different types of commercial and residential properties require different types of fencing. The fencing you’d use around your pool for safety varies from the fencing you’d use around your garden for aesthetics. On the other hand, the fence you’d install for a baseball field is distinct from what should go around a basketball court. If you’re planning on installing or improving a tennis court on your property, you need to decide on the best type of fencing for the job. We can help with that – it is, hands-down, chainlink fencing. Read on to learn why.
Qualities Of a Good Tennis Fence
The fence around a tennis court does a lot of work. It protects spectators from errant balls, it keeps people and animals from running in and disrupting the game, and in some cases, it may be needed to provide privacy from outside eyes or shade. For starters, the fence has to be tall. Tennis balls can bounce very high and in surprising directions sometimes.
If the fence is separating the court from the spectators, it needs to be high enough to block those bounces. Keeping the ball from bouncing off and the players from having to chase it down is another great benefit. The fence also needs to be high and sturdy to keep people from climbing it and to stop animals from running onto the court. Finally, it needs to be adaptable so that the fence can offer privacy from outside eyes if desired.
Benefits Of Chainlink Fencing
Chainlink is one of the best fencing materials for achieving great heights. It is modular and versatile, making it ideal for tall fences. Other materials can also create tall fences, but not without adding considerable labor effort and cost. Additionally, you can easily modify chainlink fencing to fit your needs (and it is also easy to decorate to match your aesthetic). You could include vinyl strips to achieve privacy, incorporate backboards so players can practice solo, or install netting to keep the balls from lodging in the chainlink openings.
These modifications are standard for chainlink fencing for tennis courts and the costs are reasonable. Chainlink is generally a very affordable fencing material, which is part of the reason it is so popular. However, being cost-effective doesn’t make it cheap because it is still highly durable. It will withstand the use around your tennis court without breaking your budget, and it is effortless to install, so it will probably be the fastest step of the whole process.
