I found out from the city that regular cleaning of tennis courts was cut from the budget four years ago. How can this be? I play frequently on Cubberley and Mitchell Park courts and have noticed a heavy layer of dirt, pollen and tree droppings. The court surface is pretty slick due to all the dirt. I find myself slipping a lot during points. Balls that end up at the back fence are totally covered in pollen and tree droppings -- yuk! My friend from Mountain View says their public courts are cleaned every two weeks. It's hard to believe Palo Alto isn't at least cleaning the courts once per month! Has anyone else noticed how dirty Palo Alto's public courts are? How can we advocate to get the courts cleaned again?
