#37 - What are the effects of cancha and equipment on the game?

Posted on April 25, 2004 by Tiger

Fast or slow pelotas, high humidity, warm/cold weather, low overhead screen, newly refinished floors, dead spots, "live" or "dead" frontis - we could go on and on about the variables that can effect the game, even before we start talking about the players.

So, how many of these factors permanently/temporarily alter a player's approach? Is it possible that some players can never really adapt to the local conditions?

Like with horses, are there "courses for horses, and horses for courses"?
