In 1965, Michael J. Healion, president of Century Tennis, began servicing tennis courts at Long Island’s Shelter Rock Tennis Club. Soon, with the understanding of the construction techniques and the need for quality tennis courts in a growing sport, Century Tennis Inc. began constructing Har-Tru tennis courts. Building one tennis court after another, virtually by word of mouth, Michael Healion and Company started to build a reputation for great tennis courts and satisfied customers. With hard work, perseverance and the support of the industry, Century Tennis Inc. has survived.

Today, Mike’s sons, Kevin J. Healion, CTCB, Century Tennis president, and Timothy S. Healion, Century Tennis vice president, continue the tradition of delivering the very best quality tennis courts on Long Island and the New York area. Century Tennis Inc. has become an expert in building not only Har-Tru tennis courts, but also hard courts with surfaces such as Deco-Turf, Rebound Ace, Classic Turf, Nova Pro Synthetic Turf and the HydroCourt Modified system. We pride ourselves with having the most dedicated staff, including our construction teams and service teams.

In addition to our great staff, it is equally important for us to review and implement the latest technologies in the field. Whether it is the accuracy of laser technology for grading and pavement installation or underground watering for HydroCourts, or the installation of long lasting post-tensioned concrete, it remains our goal to deliver the very best tennis courts for our most demanding players and tennis club owners.

We are members of the American Sports Builders Association, Better Business Bureau and the Long Island Builders Institute. Our specifications meet and/or exceed those of the association. We are also proud to staff Kevin J. Healion, a Certified Tennis Court Builder (CTCB), as recognized by the American Sports Builders Association, with the intention of providing a surface built in accordance with the standards of the association.

Our goal is simple, “Provide our customers with a great playing experience.”

DecoTurf’s acrylic tennis court surfaces are regularly chosen for use at the world’s most prestigious events. Our tennis surfaces have been selected for the U.S. Open since 1978, the two most recent Olympic Games, New York City Parks, the NCAA Championships and countless other notable venues around the world. It’s no wonder that DecoTurf is the top-selling brand on Long Island, having been installed at clubs, schools and residences from Queens to Orient Point.

We offer numerous surfacing options for athletic courts: From multi-layered tennis court surfaces to basketball court surfaces to multi-use sports surfaces, we accommodate all types of play at competitive pricing. Whether you are a tournament director or a college coach, an architect or a homeowner, demand DecoTurf for your court. If you want to play like a pro, make sure you are playing on a DecoTurf surface.
If you have an existing court that was damaged in the recent storms or an older court that simply needs to be freshened up, we can help. From patching products to line paint, we make your courts look like new and ready for the upcoming tennis season.

DecoTurf has a well-established network of authorized applicators across New York and is distributed on Long Island through Velvetop Products in Huntington, N.Y. For more information, please contact Velvetop at (631) 427-5904 or DecoTurf at (978) 664-3244.
