When I tell people I have three tennis courts in my backyard, they picture country clubs and neighborhood courts with signup sheets. The reality is very different...
In 1974, a local construction company donated the funds to build three tennis courts for the Seven Hills School (more on the history of the house in a subsequent post). This is what remains.
It would cost a lot to dig up and remove the court. The heavy equipment rental and disposing of the tennis court material (which must be done at a special recycling center) is not really feasible for us at the moment. So, what do we do with the space?
- Raised bed garden
- Basketball court
- Gazebo or pergola
- Bike obstacle course for the kids
- Fire pit - this one will be easy since it is already there...
Thoughts? We probably won't tackle this immediately but it would be good to start planning.
