Are the corellas attacking just the green synthetic courts?  Presumably
to a corella, a green tennis court looks like a lush, well watered lawn
Several years ago Mount Isa Mines Ltd resurfaced and painted  the
floor of one of their very large warehouses (an ex WW 2 bomber hanger)
a nice grassy coloured green.
I observed that Magpie-larks (up to half a dozen) flew inside and started
pecking the floor.
So the colour of the tennis courts may be significant.
