7:36 am
storm working 24/7 doingoi whatever they could to try to keep that dome up, and they just couldn't do it. i there's at least four tennisr tn courts i think.co it could be a little more. mor to be honest my kids have played tennis here. h they do winter lessons all yearr long. they have number of usta professionals who play there and teach there, and it's weird towt stand there and see it, and youu can see these windows, observation windows where you wu normally would be sitting downed looking down on the tennisn ten courts, and you just see nothi nothing. but i guess it's that plastic tarp or dome structure it justtj couldn't hold it. it. interestingly enough apparently the last dome that they had thee originally one they put up in u the '70's also collapsed underer the weight of a snowstorm.torm i think it was in 1997 and theyt put a new one in. a new better air structure thata has held up all this time since then even with snow mageddon and other things, so really reallyll
7:37 am
