    Go to Queens for a ‘how to’ lesson. Our courts are not sprung and are hard on the joints. The cause of more than a few injuries. Courts used all the time, so it will be money very well spent.

    Thank you for your comment. I spoke to Danny Sitton our Sports Executive and I am posting on his behalf. He said “You make a valid point re. our indoor courts which are a hard acrylic. They do provide a true bounce but are not as forgiving on the joints as our outdoor courts. When the indoor courts are resurfaced, we explore all options and I would probably recommend a cushioned acrylic which provides the same true bounce but are more forgiving on the body. As you point out, these have been installed at Queens, Roehampton, Harbour Club Chelsea and other local venues such as the National Tennis Centre.”
