Here we are playing within wafting distance of Montgomery Inn’s gaudy post-Soviet structure to the east and the Carl Lindner Tennis complex also hidden behind a concrete wall. It is approximately a circle although I think it is slightly longer than it is wide. With some dilligence, lots of plywood, and the cooperation of the skate rental shed management, we could separate this into one prime court or two tournament style courts. This court has the potential to be just as rewarding and beneficial for play as Dayton’s Walnut Hills court pictured below.
I have already started motions towards reserving this every Saturday so we don’t have to claim it from the children who run around and do donuts in their power assisted wheelchairs (Michael and I saw a brave girl do this for a solid 10 minutes). As always, we will have the goals and mallets available at 5:15 ish and start promptly at 5:30.
On Sunday, Michael and I took our momentum and hangovers to Daytron for some fast paced smashing and it did not disappoint as is shown by Todd’s bloodied mallet. As per usual, big Lee made us look like fools and everyone else exhibited some solid Dayton pride. Good, relatively clean playing from all. Southern Ohio represent!
