Local Politics Impact Tennis??Absolutely!!

So before embarking on our mission to leverage tennis to strengthen the community, teach life skills, and help youth attain scholarships, I was not as aware or connected to local politics as I should have been. Things are a' changing!

Above the Net recently listened and participated in the September Henry County Recreation Board meeting. This Board meets every third Tuesday of the month. Now, this board is composed of people appointed by our County Commissioners and they discuss issues concerning our parks and make recommendations to the Commissioners on capital improvements and new investments in parks. The Commissioners control the financial resources and determine ultimately where the money is spent.
