Tennis Court Fences: What’s the Best Material?

It’s hard to imagine a tennis court without a fence surrounding it. If you and your opponent aren’t professionals, you’re bound to end up with more than your fair share of missing tennis balls without such an enclosure. But have you considered what fencing material is best for this purpose? Below, we have laid out a few different materials for tennis court fences, and why you might want to consider them.

Tennis Court Fences: What’s the Best Material?

Have you considered these materials for tennis court fences?

Chain Link

Chain link fencing is the traditional choice for tennis court fences, and probably the first to come to your mind. The obvious advantage of chain link is that it allows for easy spectating. If you want spectators to view the players on the court with ease, then chain link is probably your best option. Adding to their appeal is their affordability, and the fact that they can easily reach great heights to prevent tennis balls from going over.

It’s easy to see why chain link is such a popular choice for tennis court fences. Still, you might want to consider breaking the mold.


Have you considered wood and lattice as a material for your tennis court fence? A growing number of people have begun to do so. One of the biggest perks of a wood and lattice design is its appearance and customizability. You can paint them whatever color you want, and there’s something undeniably visibly appealing about natural materials like wood. They also still allow for some spectating, albeit not so much as chain link.

There are a few downsides to consider, however. Wood tends to be significantly more expensive than chain link, and it also might not last as long.


Vinyl is not a popular choice for tennis court fences. But maybe this should change. Vinyl is not as natural as wood, but it can be just as aesthetically appealing. It is more resistant to rot than wood, and also requires very little maintenance.

When it comes to vinyl tennis court fences, you are definitely going to want to consider spectators. They are nearly impervious to individuals who wish to watch the tennis players. Depending on your scenario, this could be either a benefit or a drawback. Most tennis courts at schools won’t be interested in vinyl tennis court enclosures for this reason. But in certain residential or commercial settings, this added privacy, combined with its aesthetic appeal, could be too tempting to pass up.
