Do you have a own tennis court?

just wondering if here are any people who have an own tennis court on their piece of real estate?

I think it would be quite fun to have a big garden and much of room around my house and then build a tennis court

but I don't know how much it would cost and as I'm not earning (enough) money yet that is only a dream right now...

but maybe I will build one, some time, some time....

anyone has an idea how much a tenniscourt (claycourt or hardcourt) would cost?

Re: Do you have a own tennis court?

My home owner association has 2 tennis courts (hard court) for residence living in the area. About 1 1/2 years ago, the 2 tennis courts and the basketball court were resurfaced and cost US$14,000. It will be higher to build the court as you also need fencing around tennis court. Also, this is in US (and the cost will vary even in US) so I'm not so sure in Germany.

Re: Do you have a own tennis court?

The closest to me is a local swim club that has two courts, but I prefer to go to the big club dowtown, which has two hard (one indoor, one outdoor), two clay (One indoor one outdoor), and two carpet (both indoor). I will not post how much it cost to get into there, but let's just say it is worth it to play on three different surfaces, though technically, the outdoor ones are a different experience as well.

Re: Do you have a own tennis court?

Domino, I think indoor carpet is an awesome good surface!!!
I would say it is my favorite surface of all. I even go playing on them in summer when the sun is shining, so much I like them.
I also have a tennis court nearby that is carpet indoor with little resins (granulate) on it, quite fast, very fast.

lol, another dream of me would be to let me build a tennis hall with such a indoor carpet surface so that I could play on my own court no matter if winter or summer but too expensive

Re: Do you have a own tennis court?

I've once asked my parents to build a tennis court in the garden, but they say it's not worth the money since I cannot play tennis

wow, AWESOME!!!!!

I have never ever seen a green claycourt with my own eyes in reality. I've never seen one in Germany so far.

BTW, who in here has ever played on grass? (not me!)

lol as I asked my parents that they thought I'm crazy

I'm only a hobby player, I'm not playing for a club or something like that, but I would say I'm at least average and tennis is a great sport to play I think and so it would be to have a own tennis court some time

Actually my parents thought I was just joking, since I asked for a swimmingpool too

I used to play when I was 6 years old, but I was not really good (actually I was very bad ) so I did stop playing after a few years. I would like to start playing again, but on the other hand, there's a lot I want

Re: Do you have a own tennis court?

no, but my two friends have tennis courts, but they don't use them for tennis, they play basketball and football on them

my granny has a massive garden, but she won't let me build a tennis court on the bottom, she also turned own my request for a swimming pool
