Re: Cost of a red clay court
In Romania, a friend of mine, last year, has constructed 4 red clay tennis courts at a
total price of about 25 000 USD that means less then 6 500 USD per court. I don't know
how much they charged you and what technology are they using in your country
because it could be more expensive. My friend's court was done like this: they dug a
hole of about a meter deep first they put big rocks, after that rubble, then big red clay
and at last fine clay. Of course this is for the purpose of draining the water in case of rain.
Don't forget after the building of the court there is the maintaining wich involves
watering the court after every training and "coaming" (i don't know if it's the right term)
it. Besides that once in a while you have to renew the fine clay on the surface. For all
this you have to hire a man who knows the job, as for the hard court the man that
sweeps your club can sweep your court.
I'm sure now there are other technologies of making a clay court, but this seems to
work well for my friend, and half of Romania :)
