Fault! New York town’s new $3.5M tennis courts too short

In Emerging Technology, Government by Long Island Business NewsLeave a Comment

A New York town has padlocked the tennis courts in a brand new $3.5 million park because they were built improperly. The two courts at the recently opened Sweet Hollow Park in Melville don’t have enough clearance between the baseline and the fence. The truncated courts caused at least one player to run into the fence. The U.S. Tennis Association recommends courts have 21 feet behind the baseline. The new courts in the hamlet in Huntington have less than 10 feet, while the sides are about 2 feet short of the recommended 12 feet. The blunder was brought to the attention of Huntington officials by a resident who played on the new courts earlier this month. The town says the courts will be closed while they’re... Read More
