QUALITY GUARANTEED
Our artificial grass tennis products are among the
best on the market. They have sailed through tests
by the independent laboratory Labosport and the
Institute for Sports Facilities (ISA), among other
institutions.
Domo® tennis products are subjected to a variety of tests
as specified by the “International Tennis Federation” (ITF) and the EN15330 standard. The ITF determines the speed
of the surface and then classifies it as slow, medium or
fast. This classification is important in connection with the further international standardisation of equipment used
in tennis. The main EN tests are: slip resistance, traction, shock absorption, water permeability and durability.

THE STRUCTURE OF A TENNIS COURT
Domo® Sports Grass believes strongly in the importance of having a high-quality foundation on which to lay the artificial grass. A good foundation and, depending on the quality, an appropriate sand fill for the artificial grass result in a high-quality pitch that requires little maintenance, is safe for the players and can be played on at all times.

The essential requirements for a good foundation are stability for good compressive strength, porosity for good frost resistance and levelness
