# Tennis Court Surfaces

Medium
In this project, you'll test the speed of a tennis ball on three different court surfaces: clay, grass, and asphalt. You'll measure the speed of the ball by counting the number of times it bounces off the court surface in one minute.

## Hypothesis

The hypothesis is that a tennis ball will bounce fastest on an asphalt tennis court surface.

## Method & Materials

You will test three experienced tennis players on three different court surfaces: clay, grass, and asphalt. You will measure the speed of the ball by counting the number of times it bounces off the court surface in one minute.
You will need three experienced tennis players, three tennis balls, three tennis racquets, a stopwatch, an assistant, a clay tennis court, a grass tennis court, and an asphalt tennis court.

## Results

The results of the experiment showed that the number of times the tennis ball bounced off the surface was the highest on the asphalt court. This proves that the hypothesis that a tennis ball will bounce fastest on an asphalt tennis court surface is correct.

## Why do this project?

This science project is interesting because it tests the speed of a tennis ball on three different court surfaces, and it can help players understand which court surface is best for their style of play.

## Also Consider

Consider repeating the experiment with a different kind of ball, such as a basketball. Also, try repeating the experiment in different weather conditions, such as on a hot afternoon, early morning, or after a rainy day.
