Many people in town don’t know that the Andover High School tennis courts are cracked, have grass growing out of them, and have broken lines. The high school tennis teams used to skip playing on Court 2 because it wasn’t good enough to play on, but now Court 3 is in worse condition, so we are back to using Court 2 for varsity matches.
We heard that the town has gotten more money for the schools and has extra money in the town budget. We suggest some of it be used to improve the courts this summer.
The Friends of Andover Tennis also is raising money for court improvements. The group will have a table this Saturday, Sept. 15 at Andover Day in the downtown, so please visit it to leave a donation, buy a raffle ticket, and learn more about the project.
