Har-Tru: A Tennis Court Titan
For more than 80 years Har-Tru has been the choice of avid tennis players. The American company is best known for its distinctive green clay courts. Har-Tru is actually not clay but a special crushed stone that makes it more durable and consistent than traditional European clay courts. Har-Tru also makes an American red clay court surface that consists of red clay and brick dust in a deep burgundy color. Their contemporary all weather artificial green clay tennis court called Claytech closely resembles real clay with less maintenance requirements.
All clay courts require regular irrigation. Har-Tru’s HydroCourt is a self-regulating irrigation system that waters the court from below. Constructed with six fully lined cells, each cell is monitored by a water control box allowing adjustments to be fine-tuned to player preferences.
