The WTA set up a program where anyone can purchase a bench and have a copper nameplate attached with an inscription of the purchasers choice. the benches are plastic, so don’t wear out like the old wooden ones did. Currently, we have about 35 benches, some overlooking courts 1, 5, and 9 in the viewing areas. There are also benches on the sides of courts 1,5,9,and 13. Also, next to the woods, there are benches on courts 4, 8, 12, and 15.
There are still a few of the old benches which have wooden slats, and which the staff repairs as needed.
