Tennis Meeting at Millbrook new Talk of the Town

Recently a petition was signed by several Millbrook Exchange Park Tennis players to have the facility director set aside 3 of the 23 courts available for open play, regardless of tennis activities planned by the Recreation Department.

Presently there is conversation to have me meet with the Director, David Bell to discuss the petition.

I am a resident of Henderson, N.C. and drive to Raleigh to play.   Since I, and several players find that on Saturdays, and Sundays, the courts seemed booked with lessons, league play, tournaments that required regulars to find other venue to enjoy our tennis, we ask to have the facility make a change.

When Millbrook does have Tennis Tournaments,  courts are often taken, and non-tournament players  often had to go to another facility miles away.  Since this is a matter that has been ongoing,  and well known, the petition made clear the request that 3 of the 23 courts be set-aside for open play regardless of the city's scheduled, and planned activities;  and thus an open meeting with the public [not just me] should be scheduled, and the public notified by the City of Raleigh, and Millbrook Exchange Park Tennis Staff

More to follow.

That's the Talk of the Town
