FAQ: Why not open the courts as soon as the new topping is put down? They look good and ready for play.

ANSWER: In past years
, it is true, the courts would open as soon as the nets were up and the topping was down. We now know that the courts need at least a week for the topping to settle in and for the benefits of rolling to take hold.  Going to a set opening date allows time for these maintenance procedures to take place and for the courts to be as firm as possible after the spring thaw.
