Cracking and crumbling asphalt at the Urban Park tennis courts riles local players including longtime player John Dienes.
“The county spends a lot on maintaining the tennis courts, but often the money is not spent prudently,” Dienes said. “The Urban courts were just resurfaced and a new fence added, but the most urgent needs were not addressed. The asphalt around the courts is very uneven and dangerous and has caused serious injury to players moving at high speed. A player fell and broke her wrist a couple of months ago.”
The asphalt was untouched during the recent renovation, Dienes said, adding that the new fence does not reach the ground evenly, allowing tennis balls to roll beneath it – especially where asphalt is missing.
Dienes has played tennis for 30 years and currently plays 2-3 times per week, he said.
