Suggest UK blue with white court markings for the lines. I graduated from UK many, many years before you were born most likely, so just a bit of funning concerning your question.

You will need to use an acrylic paint. IMO, an elastomeric paint would be the best bet as it has elongation properties for extra weathering resistance.

There are some specialty manufacturers of tennis court paints on the net.

However, before application, you must ensure that the old surface is cleaned and primed for maximum adhesion of the new coating.

Good luck!
