Jason Gray from Beckett Ridge Country Club (BRCC) in West Chester, Ohio, was the first to take the courageous step of transforming traditional green and brown platform tennis decks to the bold custom mixed colors of ‘Premier Purple’ and green. Research indicated that ball visibility was increased because purple provided the most intense color contrast to yellow (and orange). The ease of making line calls is greatly enhanced also by the purple background and white line contrast.
