    Wow, I guess I am really in the dark. What exactly is "acrylic". A court coating? An actual surface (plastic?)?

    What do you usually play on?

    I don't know what acrylic is. Is it just a regular hard surface? And are you used to playing on hard surfaces?

    This is a hard plastic, didn't know they put it into courts, must be a really fast court, I am guessing only carpet court is faster?

    Live and die by the serve
