How to chose your tennis court

Updated: Nov 2, 2020

I prefer a synthetic court because the ball bounces at a steady level and I don't get dirty with clay. However, the clay court is more comfortable for your body.

I tend to avoid hard courts. One should always use special shoes on hard courts, to protect their spine and joints from shocks. 

Grass courts are rare because they're difficult to maintain, but you can try synthetic grass courts (You don't get quite the same experience, because natural grass is a faster surface.)

Not all clay is the same...

When renting a clay court, you need to pay attention to the quality of the clay. If it's muddy, don't risk your legs on it. If it's too dry, you'll breath in all the little particles. Same on windy days.

If you are a beginner, you could start learning tennis on a clay court, because the ball bounce is slower, but higher. An advanced player can use many types of courts. On hard courts, she/he needs to prepare earlier for each shot because the ball bounces faster and lower.
