WPT Professional : Almost all crystals hold together. Unlike the panorama, it does not even have a frame at the junctions of the bottoms with the sides, which makes for maximum visibility in the game. It is used as center court to host tournaments, events or exhibitions

Maintenance of a paddle tennis court
Through this post, we will explain how the maintenance of a paddle tennis court works, thus avoiding its rapid deterioration, since if there is no adequate and constant maintenance in these areas, the consequences end up being felt not only in the long term, but also over time. medium and even short term.
With the passage of time, the different types of paddle tennis courts deteriorate, diminishing their characteristics, becoming visually evident.
To guarantee the investment of the tracks, it is vital to carry out adequate and periodic maintenance to prolong the life of the facilities and thus obtain a more outstanding performance and reduce possible problems due to its lack.
We must remember that the courts are characterized by keeping the playing surface extremely clean, and also that the level of the surface has a firm texture so that the bounce of the ball is as required or expected by each player.
Another essential aspect in these tracks is to take into account the drainage of the paddle tennis court, the water drainage must be kept in good condition while the track is active. And, of course, the paddle tennis court must always be impeccable, so maintenance is vital for the facilities.
artificial grass for courts
Artificial turf is the best pavement to fully enjoy this sport.
Advice for the maintenance of artificial turf on paddle tennis courts. Prepared in advance for intensive use, some essential care must be taken so that it does not get damaged and to guarantee a fun and entertaining experience practicing paddle tennis.
During the first months after the creation of the paddle tennis court, it is necessary to maintain it with enough sand so that there is a complete penetration of it between the fibers of the artificial grass.
During this stage, it is essential to distribute the sand evenly throughout the track and to sweep it continuously -throughout its functional life- to prevent the sand from creating a compacted layer that prevents good drainage, as well as to make it aesthetically attractive.
The sweep frequency will depend on the use of the runway, but in general it is usually about 15 days.
It is also necessary to keep the surface of the track clean of dry leaves and other organic debris so that they do not create a layer of decomposition, again making it difficult for water to drain from the turf.
For this, a garden vacuum cleaner or a leaf sweeper is sufficient.
The same goes for stains that can be created (chewing gum, soft drinks, dog urine, etc.), which must be removed with a freezing spray to harden the rubber of artificial grass in the facilities or by wiping with a cloth soaked in denatured alcohol.
On many occasions, algae or moss tend to appear on the paddle tennis court due to exposure to the elements or poor cleaning. In these cases it is necessary to remedy with quality fungicide and algaecide treatments, which do not have an oily base.
These are some notions of minimum care to avoid the degradation of the facilities.
At Orven Sport we offer you specialized machinery and qualified personnel to carry out this care and all the best types of paddle tennis courts on the market to play whenever you want.
