Courts 2, 3, 4 are up and running. (Courts 1 and 5 have some new clay on the baseline and are still setting up.) People have played.
A problem is, though, that the courts are not very firm. Some mornings, they are wet and mushy and unplayable. (They need to bake.) So the crew has had them opened and closed, off and on, through the week. If the day is not too wet, you might just show up, racquet in hand, look hopeful, praise the crew, praise the courts, ask if the club is selling Dunlop balls this year.
Reservations? The staff has been waiting a bit on reservations, but will begin taking them on Friday, April 26, at 8:00 a.m.
