No matter what type of court surface you have, eventually, it is going to need repair. If yours is a hardcourt, you’ll likely notice cracks, worn spots, and uneven areas.

While needing to address these issues might feel stressful, the truth is that tennis court repair is fairly fast and, in most cases, pretty straightforward. Here are some of the options available to you.

You simply apply it with a putty knife and use a wet wipe or damp cloth to eliminate any excess. However, it isn’t flexible, which means your crack patch will eventually crack as well.

Crack Magic

It works on most cracks up to ½ an inch in width and works on most concrete and asphalt surfaces. How to fix tennis court cracks with this product is simple.

Keep in mind that if your court surface has cracks over an inch in width, there may not be any patching option that works. In these situations, we often suggest court resurfacing to eliminate the problem and create a playable surface.
