Rinconada Park tennis courts in need of repair and upgrade
Original post made by Andrew, Downtown North, on Nov 29, 2006
The tennis courts in Rinconada Park are in need of repair. Courts 5 and 6 (at least) have major buckling and surface separation. This makes the courts very dangerous to play on. In addition, when the courts are resurfaced, the addition of short, low fences (at a minimum) at the sides of the ends of the courts would be very welcome. The courts are very close together, and balls frequently go into other's courts, creating a dangerous situation.
Palo Alto has a very active tennis community, and there is a fair amount of money here, too. If there is a problem paying for these repairs, I'll bet that the vast majority of players would be willing to contribute some money to give the courts the attention they deserve. Our city is considered state-of-the-art in many respects; why not our public tennis courts?
