At the beginning of 2019, Court Craft recoated the portable Timber Tennis Court for the 2019 Sydney Fast Fours Event. The surface is like a large jigsaw puzzle and took 1 night to install and 1 night to remove. The exhibition event took place on Monday, January 7, 2019, at the Qudos Bank Arena in Homebush, Sydney and featured John Millman, Nick Kyrgios, Rafael Nadal and Milos Raonic in a Team Australia vs Team World format.
