Which types of artificial grass are possible?

Why do I see sand on one padel court and not on the other? What is the best type of artificial grass? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

There are 3 types of artificial grass for padel courts:


Fibrillated grass:

Requires regular maintenance to avoid sand build-up in high traffic areas. The fibres are wider than monofilament grass and are cut at the top, creating a sort of feathery pattern from the same rib. It wears out more quickly than other types of carpet because the fibres are less dense.

Monofilament grass:

Carpet in which the narrow fibres are arranged independently of each other. This means that each rib is laid individually. It is more durable than fibre grass, but requires more maintenance because the sand is looser.

Curly grass:

Used on the World Padel Tour, it is considered the best type of padel court grass on the market. The shape of the pile is curly, which allows the sand to pass between the fibres (making it look like there is no sand in the grass). When playing, the ball bounces very evenly, is weighed down by much less sand than a fibre or monofilament and is much better to maintain. In fact, it is the best option in terms of quality, but it is the most expensive.
