When we decided to get new benches, it was also decided to try and fix up the viewing area Near the Whit Gray fountain next to court #1. Barry Fishman, the WTA president at the time worked with the rec dept and the selectpersons. The town agreed to build the cement platforms and provide the picnic tables. WTA would supply the benches through donations. This has proven to be a super idea for Friday night pizza parties, Sunday doubles parties, and just generally for people to hang out, watch some tennis and socialize (when one could do that) The viewing area is also great when there is a tournament, because we can set up shop to register players and collect entry fees.
Glen added the Peter Branch fence next to the giant beech tree after Peter tried to walk under the limb, hit his head and rolled down the hill. Fortunately, Peter was ok, just a headache.
