I know this board has a lot of private coaches, and I don't mean to upset anyone, but I think it's totally unfair that I can never get a court because coaches hog up all the courts. There are 3 tennis courts close to my house and there are 2 coaches who go set up their baskets at 5pm and don't leave until 9pm! One of the coaches uses up 2 courts for his kids academy so no one can play until 9pm. Isn't there a law that should prohibit this? I'm sure that what I pay for property taxes must go in some way to build/maintain these courts. So I'm basically paying rent so these coaches can go and make a profit. Whenever I have taken lessons it has always been at a club where the coach either pays rent or is hired by the club. I think this is how it should be. Has anyone had experience with this as well? I live in South Texas so I don't know if it's the same anywhere else.
