In the Philippines, really well-maintained courts are usually found at exclusive country clubs or rich suburban neighborhoods which are closed to the public. Since the country is seismologically active, it's also hard to keep a court's surface smooth because the ground shifts; it would take a lot of investment to maintain a court. Hence, the public courts I've been on look like the one in my picture.
No kidding. In Hong Kong tennis was so expensive, hence why i didn't start playing until I came to the States. Btw, those courts aren't really public, but they are cheap to play on. I've never payed for court time though since I always had friends at clubs or what not. I can also use the courts where I teach at. Another thing to note is that you can always find free courts in good shape at High Schools and least in Texas....
