All our courses (indoor as well as outdoor) have construction of hot-dip galvanized carbon steel and stainless steel screws and nuts. Our anchor bolts are not stainless, but have an EU certificate and must last 50 years (there is then no reason to have these stainless, we thought).
When we get the steel finished, and we divide the steel, the cut surfaces are not hot-dip galvanized. Neither do the welds. Therefore, we recommend a Zinc Primer Treatment so that even these parts get a rust protection.
Straight grass or curling grass? This question is asked less and less often, as the market has clearly had its say; "we want paths without sand". The reason for this clear stance should be that a course with more sand / straight blades of grass is perceived as slippery (largely due to the wrong shoes) and the game faster. Of course, the visual effect also contributes, as you do not see any sand on the World Padel Tour broadcasts and that it is also really more appealing with the lack of sand that gives a clearer color to the grass. Here is a brief summary of the properties:
