Grove Park Project

RiteWay joined forces with Signature Tennis Courts of Woodstock, Georgia to assist in a national initiative driven by the United States Tennis Association (USTA). In 2011, 3000 tennis courts across the U.S. were refurbished or newly constructed. This project, also referred to as Court 3k, completed its 3000th tennis court on November 30 at Grove Park in Atlanta, Georgia.

RiteWay offers a signature court crack repair system that stands in a league of its own. The RiteWay Crack Repair System is a patented system that uses a micro-sealant technology to repair existing court cracks. Signature Tennis Courts uses the RiteWay Crack Repair System and applied this system on several courts in Grove Park.

“This is a great initiative that the USTA implemented and completed in 2011,” said Carvin Pallenberg, President of RiteWay. “We are pleased that our crack repair system was used by Signature Tennis in rounding out this program in Grove Park.”

“The RiteWay system was definitely the choice for renovating courts in Grove Park,” said Mike Imbornone, President of Signature Tennis. “From a contractor’s perspective it is the most complete system available, and from a playability standpoint RiteWay is by far the best.”

Traditional tennis court crack repair methods can leave unsightly patches that ultimately don’t last. Tennis court cracks expand and contract with changes in temperature, freezing and thawing, and with general usage. The RiteWay system insures a long-lasting, durable and seamless repair. RiteWay is a layered system that becomes an integral part of the tennis court and results in an invisible repair which is not affected by weather or temperature. The RiteWay system not only keeps cracks from coming back, but it eliminates dead spots, hollow sounds and bubbling – all common with other repair systems.

In addition to tennis courts, the RiteWay system is also used on other surfaces including basketball courts, volleyball courts, handball, pickle ball and inline hockey.

The 2011 Court 3k program in total upgraded 502 facilities in 283 markets representing 45 states. The tennis courts were built in public parks, school yards, tennis facilities and at local community-based youth organizations, like the Boys and Girls Clubs.

Court 3k falls on the heels of the USTA joining First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” initiative to encourage young people across the country to get active, play tennis and lead healthy lifestyles.
