Recognised Courts



ITF Recognition is an acknowledgement that a court meets the recommendations provided in the ITF Guide to Test Methods for Tennis Court Surfaces.

ITF Recognition is targeted at those venues where the standard of play demands the specification of precise playing characteristics, e.g. at international tournaments, national/regional tennis centres.

ITF Recognition is retained until the court is resurfaced or for 10 years, whichever is the sooner. However, the results are only valid for the day of testing. Properties of the court may change, due to factors such as ambient conditions, use and maintenance.


Two-Star ITF Recognition

ITF Recognition Two StarTo obtain Two-Star ITF Recognition, the average Court Pace Rating (CPR) of the court must be within 5 points of the ITF Classified value for the surface product (ITF CS 01/02) in addition to fulfilling the requirements for One-Star ITF Recognition.

If the surface product is not already classified, the product supplier may apply for ITF Classification of the surface product based on the average results of all courts using the product tested on-site. The full ITF Classification fee will apply and classification will be valid for three years.

Note: Two-Star ITF Recognition cannot be granted to courts where the surface product is not classified under the ITF Court Pace Classsification Programme.

Recipients of Two-Star Recognition shall receive a certificate from the ITF, confirming that the court(s) tested meet to recommendations of the ITF Guide to Test Methods for Tennis Court Surfaces.

Testing for Two-Star ITF Recognition must be conducted no earlier than one month prior to the One-Star tests.

One-Star ITF Recognition

ITF Recognition One StarTo obtain One-Star ITF Recognition, the court is tested for quality of installation:

- Visual inspection. The court is inspected for visual flaws.

- Evenness (ITF CS 02/02). Undulations in the surface of the court are measured.

- Slope and planarity (ITF CS 03/03). The height of the surface is surveyed at a range of locations around the court.

- Dimensions (ITF CS 04/02). The positions of the lines and net are measured.


All test results must meet the recommendations contained in the ITF Guide to Test Methods for Tennis Court Surfaces to be eligible for One-Star ITF Recognition.

Testing for One-Star ITF Recognition shall be conducted by an ITF Accredited laboratory or other company approved in advance by the ITF.

Recipients of One-Star ITF Recognition shall receive a certificate from the ITF, confirming that the court(s) tested meet the recommendations of the ITF Guide to Test Methods for Tennis Court Surfaces.

Validity of ITF Recognition

The results of the tests for which ITF Recognition is awarded are valid on the day of the test only, which shall be stated on the test report and certificate. ITF Recognition shall cease to be valid once a court is resurfaced or after 10 years, whichever is the sooner. Listings of ITF Recognised facilities and/or companies/individuals will remain on the ITF website until ITF Recognition expires.

Note: The ITF reserves the right to deny or remove ITF Recognised status at any time.
