What is Har-Tru?
Har-Tru produces its world renowned clay courts using metabasalt which is crushed,
screened and mixed in precise proportions.
As a testament of its faith in Har-Tru and its products, the United States Tennis Association has recently chosen green clay as its preferred surface for training junior players nation wide.
On the local front, Har-Tru's Hydrocourt has been laid at Macquarie University in Sydney with spectacular success.
Add to this one of the well-documented attributes of a clay court being far more friendly on the body than its hardcourt counterparts, clay courts enable juniors to train longer and harder while more mature players enjoy a quicker recovery after play.
Without doubt, Har-Tru is ideal for Australian conditions. Recent data from Macquarie University demonstrated the Hydrocourt requiring only less than 100 litres of water per day, versus up to 1,000 litres used by the traditional aboveground irrigation system.
Har-Tru’s intrinsic nature doesn’t possess the ‘blow away’ irritation of its European clay counterparts, and the Hydrocourt remains moist and ready for play.
Also, the revolutionary drainage system of the Hydrocourt permits play to resume very quickly – even after the heaviest downpour.
