Customize Your Tennis Court
To customize the look of your tennis court or basketball court, you can paint your court using a one, two or three color application. Tennis Universal has an easy-to-use "Mix & Match" color chart that allows you to alternate colors within the court illustration for a preview of what your newly painted court will look like. This is a great way to start planing your Do-It-Yourself court painting project.
You can get started by preparing the court surface. You have the choice of simply power washing the existing surface and applying two coats of color and then lines if the court has been previously color coated and your intent is to redo the color only. If the surface is new or requires major repairs you will need to apply a base coat using MultiCover Acrylic Resurfacer with Sand before the color applications. The base coat is recommended to ensure a flawless application of MultiMate Color products while filling the chips and voids on the surface and hiding surface repairs such as filling cracks or leveling depressions. Once you have the surface ready you can apply MultiMate Color with Sand which comes in a variety of 14 color; 9 standard colors and 5 new specialty colors including yellow and orange!
How to Paint a Tennis Court:
Painting a tennis court is as easy as 1-2-3; three people and 3 days is all is take to get your newly painted tennis court. First you should determine if a base coat is required. A base coat should be applied to all new asphalt and concrete tennis courts (for concrete, MultiAcrylic™ Adhesion Promoter should first be applied). As new asphalt and concrete tennis courts are quite porous and will absorb extra paint, MultiCover™ base coat will seal the new court surface and provide a nice tight finish on which to apply two coats of paint. If you have an existing surface and/or the court surface is in need or repairs or is degraded, we recommend a base coat be applied as to bring the court back to a like-new surface as the end result of your court repaint.

Applying MultiMate™ paint to tennis and basketball courts can be easily done by following our simple step-by-step instructions. If you purchase our MultiMate™ Concentrate with Sand (Ready-Mix also available for small areas), you will need to batch the court paint with 50% clean water on site. (i.e. 10-gallon MultiMate™ Color with Sand, add 5-gallon of clean water). Court paint can be easily mixed in a 55-gallon drum using a drill bit mixing paddles which we can ship with your order. We recommend you have the court paint mixed and ready to use at the beginning of a coating application so you will not have to stop the application process to mix more materials. Once you begin the coating process, you should have sufficient material mixes to complete the coat or paint being applied. You will likely apply 45-50 gallons of diluted (mixed) MultiMate™ per hour of application time.
Extremely Important Tip for The Team
Workers need to know that each coating of court paint (or basecoat) on a standard 60' x 120' tennis court will take approximately 2-1/2 to 3 hours to complete once the first material is poured onto court.
THE IDEAL TEAM FOR APPLYING COATINGS:
Three people makes an ideal team. Each worker has a specific role.
Mixer: Mixes coatings to make sure material is always ready when needed.
Applicator: Walks continuously with the squeegee until entire surface area is completed.
Middleman: Pours material when required by Applicator. Returns empty pails to drum to be filled. Keeps court clean of falling leaves, debris, insects etc.
Applying Playing Lines:
Once you have completed tennis court paint coatings, the finishing touch is the line painting.
- Applying lines on a tennis court or basketball court surface is done one of two ways.
a) identifying each side of each line with a chalk-line and then laying masking tape by hand one roll at a time following the chalk-lines.
b) identifying the center of each line with a chalk-line and then laying two rolls of tape at the same time with a line taping machine.
- A line taping machine has a center guide rod that protrudes from the front of the taping machine. When using, you simply follow the single centered chalk-line with the center guide. The use of a line taping machine and a long-handled 2" roller will cut the time to stripe a court by 60% to 70% of the time required by laying the tape by hand and applying line paint with a paint brush.
- All tennis & basketball court lines are 2" wide except for tennis baselines. Regulations allow tennis court baselines to be 2" to 4" in width. We recommend a 3" base-line. It is much easier to see from the opposing end. When the four nail holes (or permanent roofing nails) that were inserted in the court surface when you began are located, you will use them as reference points when working from the tennis court layout diagram or basketball court layout diagram.
- A line taping machine is available at a rental fee of $75.00 USD ($105.00 CAD) plus UPS shipping costs to and from your site.
- If you are laying the masking tape without a line taping machine, do not attempt if strong breezes are present or rain is imminent or forecast.
- When masking the playing lines, tape right through the intersections. After all lines are masked, a utility knife and straight edge can be used to cut and remove the tape covering the intersections
- Apply one coat of Masking Tape Sealer to prevent bleed-through under the tape. MultiSeal will assure razor sharp lines when the line paint is applied. When the line tape sealer is dry, apply two coats of MultiLine Textured White Line Paint using a 2" wide paint brush or 2" wide long-handled roller. Best results will be obtained with two even coats. Be sure each coat is dry before applying another coat.
- Remove the tape as soon as the lines are dry. Do not leave tape on surface over night. Use care when removing masking tape.
