A tennis court broom is an essential maintenance tool for maintaining any real or synthetic green surfaces that are used for sport, not just tennis courts. Use only a premium-quality broom, which consists of sturdy bristles made of natural, hard-wearing fibres such as millet or, alternatively, heavy-duty nylon. The handle is powder coated and reinforced with a cane insert for durability, while the broom head is attached to the handle with a metal broom bracket, giving it extra strength. These tennis court drag brushes, as they are sometimes called, are suitable for use both at home and on commercial premises, where they are used to maintain all types of sport surfaces including tennis courts, cricket pitches, bowling greens and golfing greens.
