Tennis Court Surfaces - Our Recommendation…
En-Tout-Cas provide different tennis court playing surfaces and multi-use games areas for home or tennis club use. They offer a range of features and benefits in terms of court life, maintenance and suitability for the games you want to play and the ability and age of the players.
For home use, we recommend either Savanna which is soft, durable and the most advanced synthetic grass tennis court surface available, or Pladek, an excellent all-around tennis surface for those who prefer a hard court. These two surfaces offer home users a great combination of lower maintenance and value for money.
Our other surfaces are more suited to use by tennis clubs of those who have more specialist requirements. We are a member of SAPCA, the UK's sports and play constructors' association.

The Full Range of Surfaces
Pladek is an acrylic painted porous Macadam tennis court that plays at a medium pace. It is a well-established and popular choice that offers excellent value for money for home courts, clubs, parks and schools.
Tenniturf is a medium to fast synthetic grass tennis court that is best suited to the serve and volley tennis player. The pace of the tennis court can be adjusted by varying the amount of sand applied as an infill, and the length of the tufts. We bring all our high-quality consultancy, design and construction skills to Tenniturf tennis courts.
Sporturf is a polypropylene Macadam court that provides a similarly paced surface to Pladek but offers better grip in the damp and more effective cushioning – which makes it easier on the knees and joints. Sporturf is built to last.
We have developed the Savanna court into what is probably the most advanced synthetic tennis surface on the market. Savanna is a soft and durable tennis surface. Its specialist fibre construction gives increased cushioning under foot and consistent ball bounce.
Omniclay is an ITF-approved, British-manufactured tennis surface that looks and plays just like a traditional clay surface. Just like clay it offers a slow to medium surface speed with a ball bounce similar to a traditional clay court.
This is the newest addition to our range. Matchplay courts provide true ball bounce for all levels of playing skill. The excellent ball pace, slip and sliding properties provide a perfect surface on which to play, combined with superior wear resistance. Their excellent UV weather resistant properties make a perfect court for indoor and outdoor use. The high performance, seamless surfaces of Herculan tennis systems are non-porous, and therefore hygienic and easy to clean.
