Thank you for always using APF Academies.
Its me Ken! I've recently returned from Jakarta. Feels like Bangkok has finally entered the dry season. Need to be cautious of our physical condition during.
A few days ago after returning from Jakarta a client asked, "What type of hardcourts does APF use?" I couldn't reply back right away so I did a little research and here is what I've found.
Its called hardcourt Plexipave. Our managing director Mr. Kaneko imagined the European Indoor Supreme and US Open blue and purple for the finishing look. This surface is the same surface used at the Australian Open. Features include a high bounce and is considered a slow hard court. Beginners to professionals are able to enjoy long rallies and obtain good technique. In terms of safety, the backcourt area, side to side, and height of roof have plenty of space.
The foundation has to be made as such otherwise surface cracks and slickness start to appear. Can you see the difference in height from the original ground?
Professional player Miss Nara Kurumi practicing at APF. (Current WTA ranking 42) Professionals who are sensitive to surface and ball types come to APF to practice on our well maintained Plexipave surface environment.
Expected participants for the allout beat 2015 Pro Motomura Goichi & Pro Suzuki both practicing on the surface. Going around and seeing other tennis courts where it just looks as if lines were drawn on concrete gives an incomplete low grade impression. Also, on such courts proper technique can not be learned and safety can not be guaranteed. Most importantly you can not have as much fun. Courts that are slick make rallying very challenging and cracked courts are dangerous. What a waste when your just starting tennis! What a waste when you planned on continuing tennis! Choose a court where you can really go out on and enjoy!
