Australian Open: Court Surfaces

By: Marian Aldana | Mar 30 2009 | 309 words | 1018 hits

Since the difficulties students are faced when pursuing a college degree can be really high, many are looking to avail of loans and scholarships, especially college sport scholarships. However, college sport scholarships are not available to everyone. They are for talented athletes who can combine their playing skills with academic prowess. ÂStudents who are talented in volleyball, for instance, need to balance athleticism and intellect if they are to play college tennis.

The Australian Open typically features a very high rate of attendance. The 2009 Australian Open reached the highest ever day or night attendance record of 66,018. This is for a single-day event, in any Grand Slam tournament. The Australian Open is worth around Â38 million to the Australian economy.

The Rebound Ace surface of the courts was replaced by a cushioned, medium-paced, acrylic surface known as Plexicushion Prestige in 2008. The most useful benefits of the new surface are better consistency and less retention of heat resulting from a thinner top layer. This change was only one of many changes in the surfaces of all other tennis events which lead up to the Australian Open. The surface had been in place at Melbourne Park for the past 20 years, and the change was controversial, primarily due to similarity of the new surface to DecoTurf, which is the surface already being used by the US Open.

Information is readily available. The Internet has proven to be a useful venue for students and parents looking for college sport scholarships. There are many websites and online forums wherein students and their families can come together and interact with coaches and other school representatives of college tennis teams. D1Athletes is an online community wherein high school athletes and coaches alike can share and exchange information they need on college tennis. D1Athletes offers them a place to build an online presence and gain important public exposure.
