Grass courts were originally among the most common tennis surfaces, but are now rare -- primarily due to the introduction of newer and more durable economically feasible surfaces.  In addition grass has a much higher maintenance costs and somewhat limited geographic and seasonal compatibility -- as grass must be watered, cut, manicured and rolled daily, all this under ideal conditions... plus fresh lines must be painted on the court prior to each use.  In addition, a grass court must be allowed a period to “rest” after each use in order to naturally regenerate worn areas of play on the court, which can not be rushed.  Like any living organism, in addition to vital hydration, grass must have ample natural sun light plus proper nutrition including fertilizers. 

Grass understandably takes more care and time to dry after watering or rain than self draining artificial All Weather. There is no disagreement that the classic grass surface is stunningly beautiful and provides the most highly desired “fast” game surface -- it is the most compatible for the human body in part due to grass’ unique shock absorbing comfort characteristics.  All other “alternative” court surfaces today attempt to replicate grass’ unique attributes at a more manageable cost with varying degrees of success depending on use and composition surfaces chosen.  For a more extensive discussion of the skills most advantageous on grass court, see grass-court specialist . Currently, England's Wimbledon is the only Grand Slam event played on grass.  The need for grass courts is still in demand among both professionals and serious non-professional players.
