  • Local tennis players cry foul

    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.”
