Surface Performance have been slip testing hard surface tennis courts at an army barracks in Basingstoke along with several school tennis courts in London. Hard surface slippery tennis courts are a common problem at this time of year and slip testing / skid resistance testing is an excellent way to measure how safe the courts actually are. Slippery tennis courts can have a huge impact on the performance and safety of a hard surface tennis court. In the photograph below, you can see a member of our Surface Performance testing team using a portable skid resistance tester. This is also known as the British Pendulum Tester which is an internationally accepted instrument for assessing the slip or skid resistance of sports surfaces, floors and roads.
Surface Performance also regularly asked to carry out independent slip resistance tests to sports surfaces, playgrounds, swimming pool surrounds and walkways.
