Editors Note: We’ve already heard from a lot of our followers that they are getting mixed stories on ticket returns… this is not good… the single ticket holders no problems. The ticket PATRONS need every single ticket returned to ticket office • for 21 sessions… wow. That’s not fair if that’s true. Cause some people share or gift their seats to others months ago. Or days ago… and some of those peeps still want to go? How is this fair? • And no BALLKids should ever have to touch a towel. The balls get “gross” enough with sweat. • On the happy note. Here comes tennis in PARADISE. A way better slogan than the TENNIS Gardens. It should be the tennis court gardens. But we like PARADISE. (LJ)
