PROPER FOOTWEAR IS REQUIRED
Proper footwear includes any tennis shoe - not running or cross training shoes.
Shoes that have any type of grooving, deep treads or deep patterns cause DAMAGE to the Har-Tru courts and are not permitted.
Tennis shoes are athletic shoes with a close to flat sole.
Tennis Shoes vs Running Shoes:
There is a wide difference between tennis shoes and running shoes. If you wear the wrong type of shoe, there is a good chance that you might get injured during a game.
- Tennis shoes are slightly heavy but slimmer in order to enhance agility. On the other hand, running shoes are lighter than tennis shoes. Running shoes are designed for forward movement only so they have higher side padding to protect the ankles. This side support is lacking in tennis shoes because a tennis player needs to move from side to side. A high-cut shoe will hamper side to side movement.
- Tennis shoes are designed to improve agility while running shoes have thick padding and designed to absorb the impact of running.
