Plexicushion System

The Official Surface for The Australian Open Grand Slam tournament. Plexicushion was selected for use at Melbourne Park in 2008 offering exceptional traction as well as accurate bounce encouraging high-performance.

Plexicushion is a surface that can be used under a Plexipave Tennis surface to enhance performance by reducing muscle fatigue. The cushioned surface enables players to play ‘on’ the surface rather than ‘in’ the surface.

The outstanding shock absorbing features of Plexicushion provide the player with a firm surface to play on, reducing the risk of pulling muscles or twisting ankles. Unlike most other conventional surfaces, Plexicushion is less traumatic on joints, making it a better health alternative for players of all ages to play on.

Plexicushion is made from environmentally friendly products that provide a consistent bounce, sure footing and shock absorption for players. Plexicushion can be suited to your budget and surface requirements.

Plexipave tennis court surfacing products are known for their consistent speed of play, true ball bounce, durability, low maintenance, vibrant long lasting colors, and overall customer value. Made up of innovative materials and installed according to rigid application specifications, each layer in the system serves a specific purpose and contributes to the quality of the finished court.

  • Highly pigmented finishes allow speed of play specification.

  • Available in a variety of popular colour schemes.
  • Custom colours are available to meet individual needs.

Plexicushion is an enhancement that provides dynamic response to body impact, attenuates foot and leg shock, and reduces fatigue.

The Plexipave system is formulated to meet the requirements of players at any level. There are three options to choose from offering varying degrees of speed and playability. All are rated by the governing body of the game, the International Tennis Federation (ITF).
Plexipave IW – ITF Category 1 – Pace: Slow. For those who desire a much slower surface, that is particularly useful for coaching & training, or simply to change the pace of the game, Plexipave has developed the I.W. mixture, first used at the Indian Wells tournament facility in California.
Plexipave Standard – ITF Category 3 – Pace: Medium. Considered by many to be the best combination of consistency-of-play, pace and footing. Plexipave Standard is the traditional and most widely used tennis court surface system. Standard Plexipave provides a consistent and reliable medium-pace playing surface.
Plexipave H.U. – ITF Category 4 – Pace: Medium-Fast. Harvard University has been the birthplace of many great innovations and playing traditions. Plexipave H.U. is no exception. It has also been adapted as the standard for the Australian Open Series.
