    My son seems to have a problem seeing the ball when playing under lights which appear to be the mercury vapor variety. Just wondering if anyone shares the same problem and if there are any potential solutions.

    Snap into a Slimjim night glasses huh? I will have to try these since they are so cheap and night vision on courts is becoming an issue. Do they work very well during the day as well?

    Have not tried them much in the day. The worst time for me is dusk and that is where they do help some. At pure night, they are a big help for me.

    Eat some carrots. :)

    No one sees as well at night as in daylight. If the court is brightly lit, he should not have a problem. If it isn't, another matter. He might want to have his eyes checked.

    My court lighting is rather dim.

    When the mountains turn blue, your beer is cold.

    ...oh, you said court lights.
