Post-Tensioned Concrete Tennis Courts: Strength from the Ground Up

When it comes to constructing tennis courts and other sport surfaces, post-tensioned concrete offers an innovative solution that combines durability, stability, and cost-effectiveness. Let’s dive into the details:

What Is Post-Tensioned Concrete?

Definition: Post-tensioned concrete is a technique where concrete is poured over cables or tendons that extend from one end of the court to the other.

Mechanical Tightening: These cables are mechanically tightened as the concrete hardens.

Advantages of Post-Tensioned Concrete Courts:

  • Long-Term Durability:
    • Post-tensioned concrete courts are renowned for their longevity.
    • The innovative technique involves encasing sheathed cables in a concrete slab.
    • Once the concrete sets, the cables are stressed and locked in place.
    • Result: Reduced repair and maintenance costs compared to asphalt courts.
  • Key Benefits:
    • Span Unstable Soil: Post-tensioned concrete can span unstable soil conditions.
    • Resistance to Settling and Heaving: Constant cable compression helps prevent settling and heaving.
    • No Cold Joints: Eliminates cold joints around net and fence posts.
    • Uniform Playability: Provides better uniformity of play.
    • Consistent Slope for Drainage: Ensures efficient drainage.
    • Stable Aesthetic Edge: Creates a stable, aesthetic concrete edge.
    • Reduced Liability: Eliminates potential liability due to structural cracking.
    • Build on Existing Courts: Can be built on top of existing courts, saving demolition costs.
  • Resists Cracking:
    • The post-tensioned slab remains durable and stable during weather fluctuations and extreme conditions.
  • Utilizes Existing Sites:
    • Reduces removal costs and addresses potential unforeseen subgrade conditions.
