    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?

    (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.
