A well kept secret in the tennis world is that you can play in a pouring rain on those Aussie CLASSIC CLAY artificial grass/sand courts and the balls don't fuzz up. The court drains great, hardens up and doesn't puddle like har-tru. The silica sand wicks the balls dry and they are like new after five hours of playing in a pouring rain...don't tell anyone you heard it from me. The club players absolutely hate the stuff, for no good reason, want to get rid of it and turn it back into a hard court--for more bar time I suppose.
