Understanding the traction of tennis surfaces

Article English OPEN
Clarke, J.; Carre, M.; Richardson, A.; Yang, Z.; Damm, L.; Dixon, S.;

The traction provided by a footwear-surface interaction can have an impact on player safety, performance and overall enjoyment of sport. Mechanical test methods used for the testing and categorisation of safe playing surfaces do not tend to simulate loads occurring duri... View more
