Post a picture of your Tennis club/court..
 
or where you generally play/practice.

Not sure if this has been done before, I apologize if it has. Thought it might be interesting. :)



These courts were recently installed at our club, as you can tell from the lack of nets. They are ASI-Court Tournament Pro 16 which are ITF certified.

We also have another 4 older astro-turf courts (the sandy ones) and a plexi-pave court.

there seems to be a question mark over your courts

Should be working now.

Bartelby 08-20-2011 12:57 AM

I'll take the shady end, thanks! Looks pretty. A shot from the other end would also be nice. Pity about the net.

How do you find the sandy astro-turf courts?

At the local cricket and hockey club they put nets up on the astro-turf when the hockey season is over. Apart from the sand getting in your shoes, it's a pretty nice surface. Shame we only get it for 8 or so weeks a year.

Don't have a pic of my club.

Here you'll find lots of pictures. http://www.tennisclub-gerresheim.de/

It's the club I'm about to join for next year.

I actually prefer the non-sandy courts. Too much sliding going on.

I like astro, nice on the knees. Not all are sandy. I slide too!

National Bank court (court #1), Uniprix Stadium, Montreal. :)

To the point of being dangerous. Played on astro-sand courts in Manila - never again. I like my ankles and knees.

Is the sand to slow them down? Why not just brush the astro turf so it has more 'bite'?

Nice courts though - love the blue. Need fences to keep the balls from rolling into the adjacent court.

Here's the courts I primarily play at:

I think it is and drainage too (or so I was told)

I could only find some pictures they took during the winter this year, but I guess it gives some impression


Bartelby 08-22-2011 05:10 AM

I'll follow winter with a summer flood:


tcjackson 08-22-2011 05:11 AM

Can anyone tell me why I'm having a little difficulty in my picture showing up? I put the picture on Photobucket and when I first tried to post it it never showed up at all. When I removed the [IMG] symbols on the front and back of the link at least the link shows up but not the picture itself. Thank you.
