Abstract/Contents:"Tennis is played on many different surfaces including natural grass; which plays fast because of low ball bounce (i.e., coefficient of restitution, COR) and low ball-to-surface friction (coefficient of friction, COF) that increase pace (ball speed) of tennis. Effects of various C3 turfgrasses on COF and COR have not been investigated. Our objectives were to evaluate 8 species-cultivars randomized within three official size tennis courts for COR and COF. COR was measured using a vertical drop height of 254 cm. Bounce (i.e., COR) to satisfy the International Tennis Federation (ITF) minimum 50% ball bounce (COR = 0.70) was not observed on any of the species evaluated. Alternatively, ball bounce (BB) of 80% of concrete (ITF standard) is possible with some species such as Festuca (FF, fine fescue) and Lolium perenne (PR) to satisfy the ITF 80% BB minimum of smooth concrete. Linear regression indicated that 170 gravities of surface hardness for FF and PR to as much as 200 gravities on Poa pratensis and higher on Agrostis species may be needed to achieve a COR = 0.70."
