April 17, 2018 Update:
We are in a soft opening status. Hard courts are playable. The building will begin to be staffed more regularly starting the weekend of April 28. Signups will begin for seasonal memberships, ladder leagues, lessons, tournaments, socials, round robins, junior camps, other beginning late April.
Our goal, weather permitting is to have some clay court play available in the month of April.
16 Tons of Har-Tru arrived mid-March. Since then the weather has been horrific in terms of getting our clay courts reconditioned for the season (worst in the 9 seasons I have been here).
April 16, it snowed most of the day. We have had record floods and persistent wet weather. Our facility resides in a flood plain. This can be good during the summer however, a challenge in the spring, particularly if the Little Miami River crests it's banks (has happened twice since mid-March).
We went from flood conditions Tuesday April 9 to gale force winds April 12 and 13. Sat-Mon 4/14-4/16 we had more rain with mixed with snow.
Clay courts that are too wet and soft cause clumping of new Har-tru. Weather conditions that are too windy risk the Har-tru blowing away. Putting the Har-tru material down under marginal conditions assures marginal results.
We have to be patient for weather openings. We hope to catch a break the middle part of the April 16th week.
January 2018 Update:
We will open the clay courts for play on or around April 14, 2018, subject to weather. Schools will begin to use the hard courts early March. The facility will begin to be staffed April 28. Signups will begin for seasonal memberships, ladder leagues, lessons, tournaments, socials, round robins, junior camps, other beginning late April.
