And please state the surface you are usually playing on. :)

I live in northern Germany where you usually play on red clay, and my outdoor playing season is from mid April until mid October (6 months), that is if the weather is okay. If not, it's possible to have only 5 months of playing (May-September).
And of course it rains quite often during that time too, so sometimes you won't be able to play, although clay allows to have light drizzle. :)

In England at my club (hard courts) it says they recommend you going between Mid March - Mid October, during other times play is free of charge. The weather here is never good (e.g. Wimbledon) but you can normally get a game in whenever you want even if there are rain breaks :)

I live in New Jersey, USA.

At my club there is all harcourts expect one green clay court and on one red clay court. The outdoor season is only June, July, and August, although it could be longer if they wanted to be. The public courts are, of course, outdoors all year long.

I live in Sydney, Australia.

The outdoor season is the whole year depending on rain.

We play on synthetic grass with sand on top, does as good job at absorbing quite a fair bit of rain, so even if it was just raining there's still a good chance you can play.

unfortunally my club don´t have indoor-courts, but we have a court each saturday in a sportpark

I have a long "year round" tennis season!

and i have the oppurtunity to switch surfaces any time i want.

I am a member of only one club though and its in a rubberized hardcourt, i really dnt know if its being used in pro tour.

i can sometimes play in a red clay, gravel & hard (concrete) surfaces.

I am in Zamboanga, Philippines, the only surfaces i have never played, i guess, relatively is Grass.

All year round in Dubai UAE. I'm playing on the courts as the Dubai Tennis Championships, that is HARD.
The only thing is that I can't play during day in summer. Only the evening when it's just 35 celcius.
