EACH SURFACE REQUIRES SPECIAL TENNIS SHOES.WE EXPLAIN TO YOU WHICH SHOE YOU'LL PLAY WITH BEST
The most commonly used surfaces are red clay (special tennis clay), natural or artificial turf (often filled with sand), or plastic-coated concrete floors – so called hard courts – as well as plastic pellet covered carpet (usually indoors). Two of the four Grand Slam tournaments (Australian and US Open) are played on “hard courts”, one is played on clay (French Open) and one on grass (Wimbledon). As a result, the pros will have a different pair of shoes for every tournament. “Universal shoes” don’t really exist in tennis. The different surfaces have their own characteristics, which leads to differences amongst the shoes. We’ll explain these differences.
