Tennis backboards not only facilitate endless hours of practice for players who just can’t find a partner right when they want to practice, but they are also a necessary addition to any court, local or otherwise, that has the community’s interests in mind.
Tennis courts have recently been in the news as a subject of concern. Tennis is not a money-making sport and the cost of maintaining a court is too high for schools, or city planners to meet. Cost aside, incorporating a well maintained tennis court into any budget is invaluable to the health, status and fellowship of a community.
Once the court is built, annual maintenance will keep the court safe and inviting. Accoutrements, such as tennis benches, properly installed windscreens and tennis backboards lining the fences, will only draw more players and build more of a community within the community.
This tennis loving mom, whose blog is called the Mountain Mom Report, found what she calls a Free Court that was well maintained and featured a new curved tennis backboard. She loved it. Not just the curved back board, which she spoke highly of. But she loved the fact that she could play alone, she loved that she met someone to play with after he asked if they could share the backboard and she loved the idea that young beginner players could practice and struggle their way through a few initial concepts of the game without the stress of returning the ball over the net.
Her review tells of her experience at the local “free” court.Related articles
