Ever wonder what the difference between clay courts, grass courts, and hard courts are? They are all surfaces that tennis can be played on, but each of them holds a variety of different attributes which change the way the game is played. Grass courts are the fastest play surface as the grass is more slippery which allows the ball to bounce with less resistance. Clay courts reduce the amount of tennis balls skid and are, therefore, the slowest play surface. Clay courts are also often praised for their reduced impact on joints and muscles, which is big criteria for athletes. Hard courts are the most common surface in modern times as the game is more predictable with their flat, hard surface.
