Description:
DecoTurf is a tennis hardcourt comprising layers of acrylic, rubber, silica, and other materials on top of an asphalt or concrete base. It is manufactured by Decosystems, which is a division of California Products Corporation which also manufactures Plexipave, based in Andover, Massachusetts.

The surface is currently in use at the US Open, the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events at Canada Masters and Cincinnati Masters, as well the US Open Series tournaments. DecoTurf was used in the 2008 Olympics held in Beijing, China and 2004 Olympics held in Athens, Greece.

Compared to Rebound Ace, which was previously used for the Australian Open from 1988 until 2007 but has since been replaced, tennis balls slow down slightly less upon impact with DecoTurf and bounce slightly lower. This probably explains why serve-and-volley players such as Stefan Edberg, Tim Henman, and Patrick Rafter had more success at events held on DecoTurf than at other hardcourt events.
