So what does VHAF® mean? …It stands for Vertical, Horizontal and Angular Fibres which create a random pile structure in the carpet. This random structure together with the sand dressing enables better stability and surface quality, as well as even bounce and pace, and less strain on joints and leg muscles.
The International Tennis Federation (ITF) classifies VHAF®NottsSward® TS as a surface cathegory 2-Medium.
