I played on the side of Sweat Mountain, Georgia for winter mixed doubles about 20 years ago. The air temperature was in the low 30s but the wind was gusting to 30 MPH. The courts are cut out of the side of the mountain. So, you are basically playing on a plateau open on 3 sides with the mountain on the fourth side. On the open sides, you are up above the trees at the foot of the mountain. The wind chill temperature was around 5-10F. On one side, you could hit it absolutely as hard as your could and it would still go in. On the other side, it was difficult to get it to stay in unless you used a ton of spin and just barely cleared the net. It was kind of like the 2012 USO. This was not fun tennis but we won.
