A current letter author protested the eradverticating of timber for tennis courtrooms at Longbrook Park in Stratford. Pretty A pair of residents have expressed opposition to the proposal and others have spoken in assist. That is Appropriately, discussing The professionals and cons of a public plan. It is not proper To exact false information when talking, Regardless of favoring or opposing.
The protesting author states that there are two current clay courtrooms and eight exhausting courtrooms at Brief Seashore. The clay courtrooms are pricey To take care of and Have not been usable for a quantity of yrs. The Stratford Tennis Affiliation held tournaments For A pair of yrs on these courtrooms. They agreed with the plan To tradverte them with 4 submit rigidity concrete courtrooms. The courtrooms at Brief Seashore have been eradicated Aside from two That are being repaired.
To say that “the metropolis Isn’t Taking Fantastic care of the courtrooms it has in our public parks” and “since all These in Inside the parks are unplayable” Isn’t true. The Bunnell courtrooms have been refinished this yr and the Flood courtrooms have been refinished not Method again. Wooster courtrooms are being refinished with one tennis courtroom And 6 pickleball courtrooms. All courtrooms On the metropolis May even be lined for pickleball, a sport that has seen super progress And recognition In current occasions. Stratford will now have 14 pickleball courtrooms advertded to the 4 alreadverty at Flood.
It has been my pleasure to volunteer my time For A pair of yrs To assist make Stratford, the metropolis that I actually like, Definitely one of the biggest that It Might be. We now have come a Good distance and proceed to make a lot constructive progress. My hope is that those with opposing views will maintain their arguments reliable.
