Speed of court, ball bounce, player slide and natural appearance have all been incorporated in the development which has produced both surface construction options; PAVE or TURF the choice is yours.

  • Water free
  • Ultra fast drainage
  • Low maintenance

POLICLAY Turf is manufactured in-house, installed and infilled on site with select coloured sand designed to play and slide just like a natural clay court. Tufted-in line marking is permanently integrated into the turf layer promoting consistent playing characteristics all year round. POLICLAY Turf maintenance is minimal, as rolling and watering are eliminated and bagging is only required once a day instead of after every set.
