Doylestown, Pennsylvania

Great court in the backyard of Eric and Susan Marttila (who submitted these excellent photos).

The 12' by 72' court is nestled neatly into the surroundings.

Stone wall is a nice touch. The playing surface is a 3-inch deep "infield mix" -- 10% clay, 20% silt, and 70% sand, over the sub-surface of crushed stone.

Like it's calling to you - "Come Play, Come Play!"

No formal drainage system - "There have been times that we have had to wait for a day or more after heavy or persistent rains to be able to roll. Although difficult for me, I am closer to accepting that you can't rush Mother Nature. It has always been worth the wait."

The Marttila clan in action.
