Our good friends, Keith and Nicole, bought a house last fall that came with a tennis court. The house was, I’m guessing, built in the 1950’s and the court was installed in 1978. Apparently in 1978 it wasn’t outrageously expensive to built a court. The owners at the time were really into tennis and decided that a court was just what they needed. A neighbor told Nicole that they had Saturday night parties where several couples played and then ate dinner together. Doesn’t that sound like fun?
The house and yard have been neglected for many years. Keith and Nicole plan to, one project at a time, return this property to its former glory. Their first big outdoor project was to have the tennis court resurfaced.
Here’s the court last November.
