surfaces / Acrylic Surface

At ETC Sports Surfaces we specialise in the construction, refurbishment and maintenance of acrylic sports surfaces ideal for tennis and netball courts and multi-use games areas (MUGAs) for schools, sports clubs and private courts. We provide acrylic court surfaces that are extremely durable and resistant to wear, making an ideal surface for all-year round play and demanding conditions.

Acrylic surfaces are unique, highly advanced sports court surfaces that offer consistent and accurate ball bounce, excellent resilience and high levels of play performance in both wet and dry conditions. What’s more, the acrylic surface has characteristics of a hard court with the texture and cushioning of a soft surface, making it safe and suitable for all players.


Here at ETC Sports Surfaces we offer two main types of acrylic court surface:

A Porous Acrylic Surface, a court surface which incorporates the technology of impervious systems and water based coatings. Combining these two systems results in a surface that withstands harsh playing conditions and allows play in wet and damp weather, whilst still offering a sure footing.

Poraflex®, a Cushioned Porous Acrylic sports surface, designed to offer maximum comfort and a consistent ball bounce.  Comprising of a high quality prefabricated rubber mat and specially formulated acrylic colour spray, Poraflex® provides the characteristics and grip of a hard court with specialist cushioning for player comfort.  This surface can also be adjusted to meet the slip resistant requirements of other sports, such as netball, basketball and five-a-side football.

Our experienced sports surface contractors are on hand to offer professional advice to help you choose the most appropriate acrylic sports surface for your facility and requirements.
