10 September 2018

RedClay USA announces its partnership with the new Peak Tennis NJ in the biggest indoor/outdoor RedClay tennis facility in North America, opening early 2019.

The new multi-million dollar state-of-the-art facility near Princeton initially features twelve “RedClay pro” brand courts from Germany.

“RedClay tennis is coming to America in a big grass-roots way through tennis directors and clubs eager to adopt our new proven technology,” stated RCUSA CEO Brian Osterberg, teamed exclusively with German partners Viacor GmbH and Dispo GmbH.

The RedClay courts are the latest patent-pending innovation in clay courts and currently the Official Court of the Porsche Grand Prix Tennis event, the WTA’s premier indoor women’s professional tournament. Used indoors, the RedClay courts require no water.

Peak Tennis CEO, Madhu Reddy, stated, “RedClay pro is the court innovation needed to secure a new and improved direction for tennis in the U.S., better from all viewpoints.”

“Being the first in our area, we’re pleased to offer this 21st century industry standard for tennis courts,” stated Peak Tennis Director, Chris Marquis, “RedClay pro courts are the most desirable for all tennis needs: social play, teaching and all levels of competition.”

As their Official Court Supplier, RCUSA together with Peak Tennis, are spearheading a five-year ‘RedClay Revolution’ campaign in North America. “Once we install the RedClay pro courts, everyone will want them,” stated Peak Tennis High-Performance Coach and former ATP player, Christian Guevera.

David Park of Hollywood, FL, home of Smatt Tennis Academy, begins conversion from old green clay to new RedClay courts in November. Owner Jesse Smatt stated, “All Florida is buzzing about the RedClay as THE answer to our green clay courts becoming unplayable after heavy rain. I don’t know who would install anything else but RedClay pro courts today, anywhere.”

“Our new clay technology means affordable “Clay for All!”, as it demonstrates to be the most economical of ANY tennis court. The U.S. can finally evolve into a real clay court tennis culture.” states Osterberg.

Palmetto Tennis Center Director Sam Kiser in Sumter, SC stated: “PTC is on schedule to install our new RedClay pro courts before the end of this year, including the nation’s largest RedClay stadium court here at PTC.”

Palmetto Tennis Center is a flagship facility hosting a RCUSA Innvation Center where both RedClay tennis and pickleball courts will be available for inspection.

RCUSA has approached the USTA with the new court technology. USTA National Campus General Manager Tim Cass, in Orlando, wrote to RCUSA, “I love your product…”. RCUSA has offered the USTA installations at their national campuses.

Other nationwide RedClay inquiries received include: The Tennis Club at Newport Beach Country Club, CA; John Newcombe Tennis Ranch, TX; Tucson Jewish Community Center, AZ.
