Here is a formula for making tennis a more enjoyable activity on public courts….
Help municipalities, parks and recreational authorities understand just how many people are playing tennis. Tennis is far and away the fastest growing major sport.
Encourage these authorities to take more responsibility for keeping courts in good shape.
Petition authorities for ways to allow certain public courts at defined times to be made available for booking (at reasonable cost) , programming and lessons. Allow pros to set up shop to assist this process. This will foster more play and provide revenue for the courts to be kept in better shape.
