Why is there still snow on the tennis courts but not around them?
The grass may be warmer than the surface of the court. Phil is a big tennis player, I will ask him and get back to you on this comment form if he knows.
Ginny, that sounds logical.
hubby is sitting here watching Nadal play tennis and he doesn't know and i don't either. waiting......
I'm afraid I don't have an answer so I'm waiting too! It seems odd to me because walkways (even those that don't get plowed) usally seem to get clear of snow before the lawns do.
Ginny has the right answer, the surface of the tennis court is colder that the surrounding ground. The soil will hold the heat longer than stone.
