My school just chose me to play a Inter-Collegiate Tennis Competition at the American College of Greece (anybody here from there?). Wanting to be prepared well, I decided to do some research and found out that the surface at the University is "Acrylic Latex."
I did some more research and apparently it's some sort of a hardcourt. Does anybody know how it plays? How fast or how slow? I found a picture of the courts on the website. Looks a little strange, like a marble floor or something but I guess it's the sand lying around on the court that makes it seem like that.

Umm...how do I post a picture thats on my computer?

On the far left of the map, if you click on the white box (next to the road) you can see the image of the tennis courts.

(Its Acrylic Latex aka) Decoturf II.

It's a medium paced hard-court with an medium bounce, and not a high neither a low one.

It's used in US OPEN - According to interviews made. Altho Decoturf themselves claim (atleast on the centercourt) is a Decoturf Pro surface.
