green clay is faster (more sand) and it skids more than red clay

and it sounds different when they slide. like when you slide on gravel. Like someone said there is more sand.
Samanatha Reeves summed it up pretty good in her loss on Saturday she screamed "I can't move on this surface" !!

Green Clay is made from Basalt which is a natural material which needs mining and crushing

Red Clay is made from crushed bricks

Correction. I checked my last year RG guide :

The courts are made principally of limestone. It comes from Saint-Maximin (Oise, France).

The red stuff is obtained from crushed bricks (it represents a one millimeter stratum while the limestone one is 8cm thick).

This little millimeter of crushed bricks still represents 3 tons per court .

I thought that some Green Clay courts are synthetic, and that its some chemical compound, they sometimes use it in the long jump pit.
