A carpet court is a type of tennis court. The International Tennis Federation defines carpet courts as a "textile surface of woven or non-woven nylon, or a polymeric or rubber material, typically supplied in rolls or sheets" and as a removable surface. It is one of the fastest court types second only to grass courts. The use of carpet courts in major professional competitions ended in 2009 to reduce injuries.
