More on Potential Tennis Stadium Sale

An article from the Forest Hills/Rego Park Times website has a lot of good detail about how West Side Tennis Club members feel about the potential sale of the Tennis Stadium. The vote by the Club members is scheduled for August 19th.

I feel it would be a huge mistake to have this piece of history demolished, as I said in an earlier post. I think Tennis.com Assistant Editor Ed McGrogan’s column that I highlighted yesterday about the USTA buying the Stadium sounds like a great idea: “The USTA could acquire the stadium, renovate it, and replace the existing hard court with lush grass. With a suitable show court, along with the existing grass courts in the center of the club, Forest Hills would be an attractive site for a second ATP tour grass event—or the first on the WTA tour—in the United States.”

By the way, here is a really cool aerial view of the Tennis Stadium, which shows very clearly where it sits in relation to the rest of the West Side Tennis Club.
