Of course if you already own one, what is the surface of your own tennis court? :)

I would love real grass but there is the issue of maintenance which i wouldnt do ;) so id get fake grass...and i do plan on getting my own tennis court on a property overlooking the beach = bliss :)

I'd love to have a grass tennis court, but I haven't got the money to get one, so I'll have to do without

Rebound Ace.
I like grass the best, but it takes too much maintenance, so I'd get fake grass, but I want to teach my little sister the game of tennis and I don't think she'd like the fast grass courts.

Red Clay, because the tournemants in Belgium are mostly played on red clay, also it's easier for your body then other surfaces.

i have a grass court at my house and a clay and hard court on my family farm in country nsw

I've got a grass court at home

rebound ace sucks...... doesn't suit my game at all.... well maybe because i've only played on it once in my life.....

when i first tried indoor courts i loved it so much and i felt like lindsay davenport, hitting winners everywhere..... i think indoor's the best!

Green Clay, because I love clay and because it's a little bit faster than the red one!

:( I couldn't vote....I only want En-Tou-Cate (Spelling?)...plays between a clay court and a hardcourt (speedwise)...I believe it's Volcanic Rock put over a dirt/clay base....can suit a hard serve....but in rallies plays more like a clay court (sliding etc)...many of them in Australia because they absorb water very well....(we have to hose them before each set in Summer) :wavey:

well definitely Hard Court!!! Fast and easy maintening!!!

I would love and indoors court..really suits my game, and I could play in those cold and longs winters of Canada!!!

By the way, happy 350 posts to me!!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :worship: :worship: :worship:

I'm just better indoors than anywhere. No sun, no wind, and everything clicks in.:D

If only I could play on it for my team, instead of hardcourts outdoors.:rolleyes:

Green Clay
because its so in-between.

its the perfect surface to learn how to play on

We had a hard court at the other house, and my dad is planning to build a clay or hard court when we build our new house.

Indoors b/c you can play all year round and not be distracted by rain or cold or other weather annoyances.

Big serve & volley game.

i voted for Hardcourt simply for the low maintenance thing, but which i would really want is grass coz it would kinda be a priviledge and an honour to have grass coz nobody does. then you can do your little dance and stick out ur tongue at everyone else;)

I only played one time on carpet and I love it.
I also love green clay, it suits my game most.
but being in US, I played to much on hardcourt.

I havent played on grass, red clay or any other surface. I wish I could, specially grass.

real grass

I live in England.... if I want to be able to use it for all 12 months of the year and not just 2, it's gotta be indoors. In an ideal world, indoor clay.

plus i'd have to have a whole separate building for it... property prices anyone? i'd be rolling in it once i left.

I'd like real grass coz i'd probably end up sitting down or having a nap instead of playing. Of course i'd be rich and i could afford the maintenance.
