"Are the tennis courts at Tommie Barfield considered for school use only?"
Racquet Club has first call on these for its leagues.
"Or simply raise the fees to the racquet club."
Racquet Club soft courts were all built lousy. Even the better ones are bad and risky.
Whereas, YMCA soft courts are best in the county. This was because when this system was planned, Y player-volunteers spent a year or so studying various court manufacturers to settle on best system.
Advantage to Racquet Club membership is low cost and good staff.
If boost fees there to Cambier Park level, will lose many players to the Y, putting this facility and City further in the $ hole.
Why have soft courts at all?
You don't have them up North, in general.
Mostly they are a status symbol for Country Club life.
Best solution for the Racquet Club and city would be to replace all clay courts with hard courts, requiring little upkeep, and keep the membership fee reasonable.
