What’s Happened to My Tennis or Basketball Court?

One of the most common safety hazards on courts is uneven surfaces. Over time, concrete courts can become cracked and sunken, creating tripping hazards and affecting gameplay. Additionally, uneven surfaces can cause injuries like sprains and strains. That’s why it’s essential to address any issues with the court’s surface before players step onto it.

Prolonged neglect can turn these cracks into potential tripping hazards, compromising the safety of the players. Additionally, an uneven surface can affect the ball’s bounce and movement, thus hindering the quality of the game.

If you’ve noticed cracks or sunken areas on your court’s surface, it’s time to consider concrete leveling. This process involves injecting a special foam material under the concrete slab, which expands and raises the surface to its original level. Unlike traditional concrete repair methods, concrete leveling is minimally invasive and can be completed quickly, meaning your court will be ready for play in no time.

Substrate Movement or Erosion

Sports courts are often subject to sinking or cracking, which can make them uneven and unsafe for players. This can happen when the soil underneath the concrete surface becomes eroded or compacted due to water seepage or poor drainage. Over time, the heavy weight of the concrete and the impact of sports activities can cause the concrete slab to sink into these voids, leading to cracks and bumps.

Advance Concrete Lifting and Leveling uses a unique solution that involves the use of a special foam injection. This foam fills the voids underneath the concrete and lifts the slab back up to its original level. This process not only ensures a smooth playing surface but also reinforces the underlying soil, providing a stable base for the court. With our solution, you can enjoy a safe and even playing surface for your favorite sports.
