“We have been using the [new tech] RedClay courts for about a month now. We switched from traditional red clay last month. So far we are very pleased with the new courts.
For us the new RedClay courts are better because we can use them under most conditions (dry quickly after rain. don’t need as much water when it is hot) and they play like traditional red clay courts. We have a couple of pros training on them ( ranked between 110 ATP and 1400 ATP) and they are very happy with the surface as well.
We are happy with the decision because we spend less time looking after courts and more time using them.” Kevin Sorensen to RCUSA, Top Tennis Stuttgart, 2014
“Americans are long overdue experiencing the health benefits and aesthetics of the red clay culture enjoyed in Europe. All the artistic play for which Roger is known, plus the down-in-the-dirt excitement of today’s game,” Peter Lundgren to RCUSA, Former Coach of Roger Federer, Marat Safin, Grigor Dimitrov, Marcelo Rios, Stan Wawrinka, 2012
“I am very impressed with the RCUSA’s RedClayCourt™ technology… it’s an exciting evolution and complimentary improvement over basic traditional RedClay from Europe!
The new technology makes this real red clay surface in ways even better than the classic French Open courts, because these RedClayCourts™ are always in prime playing condition with their solid, consistent, safe sliding surface no matter the amount of rain or use.
I highly recommend them for the USA and UK, to begin the long over due adoption of red clay for our countries,” Andy Fitzpatrick to RCUSA, Coach of British WTA Player Naomi Broady, 2017
“Congratulations…Well done!”, Jimmy Arias to RCUSA, Former World #5, 2014

“This (new RedClay) surface was the preferred option of our coaching team due to the closeness to real clay, while retaining good drainage and easy maintenance. It is also used as a clay court competition surface by the ITF (Fed and Davis Cups; Stuttgart Porsche Grand Prix).” Daniel Gomm to RCUSA, Facilities Operations Manager, British LTA, National Tennis Centre, 2014
“…wish you great success on bringing this new red clay surface to the U.S.” Derek Ameel to RCUSA, Professional Tennis Management, Director,
