9/14/2017: Status Report on Tennis Facility from Jim Tierney, TD
Boca Raton and the Southeast Florida were VERY lucky to escape a direct hit from Hurricane Irma. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people that weren't so lucky. We've been through it before with Wilma, which wasn't nearly as devastating as Irma, and it's no fun. It will be months and years for them to get back to normal. Fortunately, the Racquet Center received only minor damages from Irma; mostly branches, leaves, and other debris. I am proud to say our staff open 12 of the Center's 26 courts for play today. 8 more courts will be open tomorrow. Unfortunately, a large branch fell on, and crushed a gate and portion of the fence to one of the stadium courts putting both courts out of action. However, I would be very surprised if they weren't ready in a week or two.
Looking forward to a GREAT event in November!
