How to Clean a Tennis Court

When you watch the Australian Open, Miami Open, French Open and the Queen’s Club tournament or Wimbledon you will notice they all look very clean.  However, there is effort and technology behind this level of clean.

Here at Clean Sweep Hire we understand the importance of ensuring tennis courts are kept in top condition.  We can help you keep your tennis court clean by hiring you Kärcher cleaning machines, which are as you will know are a well respected and trusted brand.

Do I Need to Clean a Tennis Court?

Proper cleaning of your tennis courts can remove such issues from surfaces such as:

  • Surface moss which can be slippery
  • Dirt
  • Algae


By using a professional cleaning machine such as those offered by Clean Sweep Hire you will no doubt improve the appearance of the court, but you will most importantly make an improvement to the playing service meaning:


  • Greater grip underfoot.
  • Fewer slip incidents meaning less injuries.
  • Better conditions for playing.
  • Improved life span of the surface.


Regardless of whether you need to clean a clay, hard or grass tennis court, here at Clean Sweep Hire we can cater for all your needs.

To help you we have put together our top three machines for cleaning tennis courts below.
