A few points worth considering...
Sand comes in dizzying array of grades. Good sand is not hard. At
all. If you fall in it running and you skin a knee or get any sort of
abrasion or feel skin pain, you're playing in bad sand.
Is it possible his existing sand courts are perceived as hard because
the sand is either of a poor (coarse, construction/fill) grade, or was
not double washed and the dirt in it is causing it to pack and be
If fixing the sand courts is not an option, then perhaps this indoor
soft grass-like turf is worth exploring. At the sport center I
mentioned, they play soccer on it, human bungee football (funny funny
stuff--kids in little harnesses suspended from the ceiling on stretch
cords playing soccer), and grass volleyball.
