Astroturf makes sense for most clubs in terms of playability throughout the year.

I only occasionally play on Astroturf. Wouldn't mind playing on it a bit more.  Think

My club's courts are all weather but in cold winter evenings I've seem them becoming too slippery and unplayable.

I hate them compared to hard court - the ball dies when it bounces and also it really screws up the felt of the balls.
Felt aside, I love playing you on the astroturf.  You can't handle my mishits net shots!

Any ideas what grass is expected to play like, on a scale of astroturf to indoor hard?

Can someone tell me if I'm crazy to consider this:

My overgrips are making my grip size too big... would it be crazy to actually remove the original tennis grip and use an overgrip on it's own instead?

No not at all. A lot of people at my club take the grip of their rackets completely then put two overgrips on instead.

Oh great!! I was worried that the original grip is especially thick or something and an overgrip would not be appropriate on it's own.

I shall try this out because I was considering having to buy the same racquet again but with L3 size.

No don't do that. Definitely try the overgrip technique.

I had to teach some mini tennis or my coaching course. Never experienced a tournament though.
