8/16/07 Playing in Central Park

What's one of the rewards of running this service? The league staff now has partners in each of the cities where leagues are run. On Sunday, August 11th I had the distinct pleasure to play with Elena Danova from the Tennis New York league in Central Park. 30 tennis courts that are always packed full with players either competing, just hitting or taking lessons. Just like NYC the scale of the facility is impressive. Elena was a pleasure to hit with as she enjoyed striking the ball with pace. But, she was a little limited in her movement from a 12-mile road race the day before. The aspect that I think the park needs to improve on is the grade school buzzer that announces the end of the hour of playing time. I felt like I was late for class! -Steve, Lead Admin
