Putting in a tennis court is a large project that needs to be carefully and thoroughly planned before you take the first step towards beginning the construction. Below are three important things to consider.
Restrictions on development
Before you even begin to plan any details about your tennis court, you must find out what restrictions there may be on developing property in your area. In some places, no structure may be built within a certain distance of the border of the property. There is the possibility that a tennis court is not considered to be a structure, so the restrictions may not apply. In other areas, there may be no relevant restrictions on anything that is not a dwelling.
Positioning the court
One of the first things you should do is to work out whether your property will actually accommodate a court and, if so, where you would place it. There are factors you need to take into consideration:
Fencing the court
The reason to have a fence around your tennis court is primarily to keep the balls on the court. To facilitate this, the fence does not have to be the same height all around the perimeter. The side fences can be set at a lower level than the back fences. If your tennis court is built up against the border of your property, though, then there will be other considerations and it may be advisable for the side fence to be high enough to catch any high-flying tennis balls.
If the side fence of your tennis court is to be built right up against the border of your property, then it will have to be a high fence. Make sure that there are no restrictions on the possible height of border fences in your area.

I wasn't very good at sport growing up, but now I am turning 40 I want to try to learn a new sport. I am starting to learn how to play water polo. It's so much fun to learn a new skill like this and it's definitely making me fitter. I hope that I can show people on this blog that you are never too old to learn a new sport and that it can be a lot of fun. I still have a long way to go before I am as good as the others on my team, but I hope you can cheer me on!
