How do Playrite’s different tennis surfaces impact on a game?

Playrite offers a synthetic tennis surface range, which covers each of the ITF’s pace ratings. This allows you to choose the best surface to suit the playing levels for your club members...

Tennis tournaments across the world are played on a range of different surfaces, each of which has its own characteristics that impact the match in a different way. From indoor surfaces to industry-leading clay courts, our unique range offers comfort underfoot as well as the ability to take spin and slice.


Matchclay simulates natural clay courts without the high maintenance requirements and is relatively quick and low cost to install, so provides an ideal solution for clubs wanting to continue with clay courts without extensive all year round maintenance costs.

When filled with clay this surface is classified to ITF Category 1 Slow pace. Fully adhered or loose laid, Matchclay is a cost-effective solution to natural clay.


Clayrite is a tufted monofilament or fibrillated yarn which mimics the look and play of a natural clay surface. Its sand topdressing helps provide the same ball speed and bounce like that of a traditional clay court.

Clayrite is the complete artificial alternative to our Matchclay surface having a sand-filled system and can be installed onto existing or new hard porous courts.


Matchplay 2 is an ideal all-round club level choice due to its high performance and durability.
