Re: “Sports Boom or Sports Hype?

$26 to get on the indoor courts at the Bellevue Tennis Center is not "affordable". $14 to play on an outdoor court is also not "affordable". (visit tennismemphis.org to check out their ridiculous prices) Who in the world is going to pay that kind of money to play on these decaying old courts? To say the Frayser courts are free "if you check into the community" is ridiculous because the community center is closed in the evenings so there's no where to check into and all of the gates are locked.

Why is it free to play basketball on the courts outside community centers but it costs $14 to play tennis? That doesn't make sense. Tennis courts don't require anymore maintenance than a basketball court, so why the ridiculous fees?

Stop by the Frayser or Bellevue tennis centers sometime and you will see a big waste of a valuable resource. It's such a shame. I have a group of friends who would love a place to play tennis around downtown, but there's no way we're going to be forking over $14-26 to play a game. I guess that's a "copout"...whatever.

Charge $26 for someone to play a game of tennis and of course you won't see many people playing the sport. Simple as that.
