Hi Chris and Jessa.
Thank you for continuing our tennis opportunities indoors in Hampton.
As our Men’s Doubles group moves outside Monday evenings for the summer months, we have in the past tried to come indoors whenever weather becomes a factor. Just wondering if you would consider also offering us that contingency and for the same rate and policy? While we play at 6pm outdoors, we would probably be willing given rain to play 6pm-8pm, 7pm-9pm, whatever works. Please give me some feedback on this, especially what kind of notification you would require. Sometimes we find out at 5:45pm that a thunderstorm has wiped us out. For the most part, our players are happy to come inside to get the matches in.
Also, I mentioned that I took a survey for next year and would have some results. I’ve attached a file here with the analysis. I believe the numbers can be interpreted to support the Monday, 7pm – 9pm session, however Thursday, 7:30pm – 9:30pm looks to be problematic. I believe a lot of the issue is the 7:30pm late start time. This May when the ladies USTA team pushed us back to 7:30pm we saw a significant drop off in interest and we couldn’t even put matches on the courts for the final Wednesday opportunity in May.
Hope this information proves useful to you. Please let me know your thoughts for our outdoor rain-out policy.
