Since 1965, Century Tennis has been dedicated to the growing sport of tennis by building quality tennis courts and providing a specialized service to the tennis club industry, as well as the private community. With an emphasis on high quality service and customer satisfaction, the owners and staff at Century Tennis have built not only great tennis courts, but a legacy of lasting trust with customers.

“We simply want to be the best at what we do,” said Kevin J. Healion, CTCB, president of Century Tennis. “In order to build great tennis courts, you have to start with an understanding of soil conditions and how to convert it to a good base. With a solid base, we can then use our latest technologies, such as laser-controlled graders, to build the right surface to accommodate our client’s needs. Every playing surface is a custom fit. An individual’s likes and dislikes are important factors that help us recommend the right surface. Whether it’s a hard court with the softness of deco-turf or classic turf rubber, a soft court like Har-Tru or Hydro Court, or a little of both with Nova Synthetic Turfs, we can deliver.”

Our construction staff is experienced in every phase of building, including custom fence design, and wood and iron working, all done in-house. Our service staff is equally equipped to maintain all playing surfaces.

We are members, in good standing, with the Better Business Bureau and the Long Island Builders Institute. Our building techniques meet and/or exceed those of the USTA and American Sports Builders Association (ASBA), and the ASBA has recognized Kevin J. Healion as a Certified Tennis Court Builder with significant industry experience.

Our intention is to deliver the very best tennis courts. At Century Tennis Inc., our goal is simple, “Provide our customers with a great playing surface.”
