When I traveled through North Carolina, 'they' said the turf courts were a way to get a clay court 'cushion' without worrying about freezing. That may have been all they were 'good at'. In addition to Omni-Court, it seems like one brand was called Tennis-Turf or some such. Nasty stuff
Willingboro, NJ replaced their Omni courts a few years ago. Astro turf shoes worked to keep you upright.
