Most cities have a tennis court. Most of the time the tennis court is located outdoors. Sometimes, the court can be found indoors.

There are pluses and minuses to each. Let’s talk about the outdoor courts. This is more of the “natural habitat” that people think of when they think about a tennis court. Tennis games happen outside. Therefore, practicing outside is better for those practicing to win. At times, there might be gusts of wind. For the person used to this, they will be better off during a real tennis match.

Now imagine the person who trains outdoors goes up against someone who trains inside. The person who trains inside would likely be at a disadvantage. Another disadvantage for the inside trainer would be that the flooring is different outside than it is inside.

The person who trains inside, however, will have the advantage if a game takes place indoors. Why might a game be played indoors? The number one reason is inclement weather outside. If it’s raining outside, the game might be moved indoors. Also, if there is snow outside, there surely won’t be a tennis game outside. The game will have to take place on an indoor tennis court.

When I play tennis I don’t have a preference as to if the court is inside or outside. What matters most to me is that I’m able to play the game. That being said, if it’s too hot or cold outside, I might prefer to play indoors. However, if it’s a beautiful day, I will probably prefer to play outside. I’m sure other people think the same way because this is fairly straightforward.

To find a local tennis court, a player should simply go online and search for the closest one. Keep in mind the weather outside! Knowing where both types of courts are will maximize the ability to play either way.
