TENNIS SHOES ONLY ON THE COURTS  -  NO RUNNING SHOES 
                       NO CROSS TRAINERS - THANK YOU

When someone plays for one hour on the clay courts in cross trainers
or running shoe
s it takes 80 pounds of Har-Tru topping and 90 minutes
of skilled labor to repair the court. Every day someone comes to the courts
ready to play in shoes that are not suitable for these courts.
If you see someone playing in running shoes or cross trainers please bring
it to the attention of the Supervisor or gate person. If no one is at the gate
please bring it to the player's attention. It is in everyone's interest that the courts be protected and respected. Cross trainers and running shoes tear up and damage our precious courts. Thank you.
Glen Doyle
Supervisor
