Best Answer

No, All Tennis courts are 78 feet long by 36 feet wide including the doubles tramlines. It may seem that grass courts are smaller either by the camera focal lengths used or the fact that clay courts hold up the ball bounce and so slow down the play.

How long does it take for tennis court construction to be completed?

The length of time required for tennis court construction depends heavily on the type of court being constructed. There are three main types of tennis courts: clay courts, grass courts, and concrete courts. As for grass tennis courts, the construction time depends on whether or not you already have suitable grass to build the court on. If the grass is already there, then construction of a grass tennis court need not take very long. However, if you need to grow the grass for your tennis court, then this type of court can take quite awhile to construct. Concrete court construction time is limited by the amount of time necessary to prepare the land for the concrete to be poured as well as the length of time it takes the concrete to cure after it is poured. Depending on who you hire and how long they work daily, concrete court construction can a few weeks. Weather can impact the length of time necessary to construct all types of tennis courts.

What are the Wimbledon courts made out of?

The court surface at Wimbledon has always been real grass, hence 'Lawn Tennis', although clay courts and synthetic indoor courts also exist at the complex for training purposes. Although the courts are especially prepared with particular grass and soil for the purpose, the grass does naturally wear down over the use of the courts and can develop bare patches and slippery areas.
