Tennis benches are as important to a tennis court as any other piece of court equipment. They are certainly an invitation to have a seat courtside whether it be the contestant or their cheering team. Comfort and durability are aspects to keep in mind upon this investment.
Tennis Bench Types
Indoor and outdoor tennis benches differ in construction and material. Selecting the right bench for your court can lengthen the life of your investment. PVC (vinyl-coated polyester) tennis benches, for outdoor use are often coated with a UV protection treatment.
Wood tennis court benches are ideal for indoor courts because of their aesthetic appeal as they are a simple and elegant choice for any indoor court; however, they are not weather resistant and therefore not recommended for outdoor use. Weather resistant enamel paint can quickly repurpose any wood bench for outdoor use.
Aluminum tennis benches are more durable in high traffic areas and are available in a wide variety of colors but are not always as stylish as other benches.
