Neglected tennis courts
Since the YMCA has effectively abandoned the Southcrest tennis courts, it's apparently now up to our neighborhood to keep the area clean to avoid a junked-up blight. This isn't an official responsibility -- it's just how things work out.
A couple months ago I filled a bag with trash I collected around the courts. Today I brought along a broom and dust pan to sweep up a bunch of broken glass. There's nothing I can do about the fences being overrun with kudzu, though.
It's a shame this spot is being neglected by the Southcrest YMCA. While I don't play tennis, the courts provide a nice safe place for my daughters to ride their bike and scooter.
