Better Courts. Better Tennis...

Our Hydrogrid clay courts utilize an underground irrigation system to keep the playing surface consistent. The courts can be adjusted to be dryer for faster play, or wetter play for slower ball speed and longer rallies.

Hydrogrid® Advantages:

  • Courts can be up to twenty-percent cooler than hard courts...ideal for Curaçao's consistently warm climate
  • The underground irrigation system guarantees a consistent playing surface
  • The clay courts are never down for watering, because they are watered automatically from beneath the courts
