Petition to AELTC and LTA to replace the Grass surface on Wimbledon Championship Courts by Clay surface sign now

This is a petition from tennis fans for the AELTC/LTA to replace the grass courts used at Wimbledon Championship by clay courts, despite the increased speed of game noticed in 2008 on that championship.

The signatories of this petition approve the significant reduction in court speed that has gradually occurred at the Championships over the past five or so years, but wasting seeds of grass, as that surface has been officially maintained.

This reduction of speed has primarily brought two positive effects. It has firstly led to a decrease in the ammount of harmful plays that is traditionally associated with this Championships; boring serve-and-volley and net-attacking plays are now seen only rarely. Nevertheless, the style of tennis played at Wimbledon has been brought into a bigger uniformity with other grand slams, namely Roland Garros Championship, whose present a higher level of tennis. The signatories of this petition believe that this change is necessary, as it sounds pernicious to the fans of Serve-and-Volley tennists, in sense that the differences between the grand slams constitute the great chances for a boring serve-and-volley tennist to win a championship.

There has been much information in the Media and among tennis fans that the reduction in court speed aims to reduce the success of big servers on grass, thus improving the quality of play. The signatories to an extent sympathise with this objective, thus claiming for the total use of clay courts in Wimbledon Championship, from now on.
