3 Reasons to Play on Clay Tennis Courts, Beavercreek, Ohio

If you're looking for a location for your next round of tennis, there are a handful of surface options to try. The four main types are hard courts, grass courts, carpet courts, and clay courts, each of which has unique advantages and disadvantages. There are a few key benefits that put clay tennis courts on top, though, so let's take a look at the characteristics that make them ideal for tennis players of all levels. 

Top 3 Benefits of Playing on Clay Tennis Courts

1. Less Physical Strain 

One of the best side effects of playing on a clay tennis court is the reduced impact on your joints and back. The softer surface is easier on the body, lowering the overall risk of injury. Since many tennis players tend to take the sport on as a lifelong interest, it is best to protect your joints early in your tennis career and throughout to enjoy the sport as long as possible.

2. Slower Ball

The more controlled game is also perfect for beginners, who can take their time and pull off a greater variety of strokes thanks to longer rallies. 

3. Fresh Air Opportunities

Perhaps best of all, playing on clay tennis courts is the perfect excuse for soaking up fresh air in the great outdoors. Nothing beats taking tennis lessons or playing a full game with nature all around you. With clay beneath your feet and rows of beautiful pine trees in the vicinity, you'll be able to take deep, rejuvenating breaths between all those intense sets.
