I know we all claim we can play tennis 365 days a year in the sunny state of California, but reality sometimes bites. I'm in charge of court schedules for USTA leagues at my small club. Six courts, 4 senior teams, 2 of which made playoffs and 3 mixed teams. Only three of the courts have lights, which we have to clear with the tennis pro to ensure he's not teaching those nights, and seniors don't play nights anyway. Virtually all matches are played on weekends. And just as we got all the schedules tucked away, in comes the rain. We've had the three of the last four weekends rained out. What a mess.
