There have been many negative letters regarding the new proposed public indoor tennis/multi-sport facility to be located by the Dempsey Anderson Ice Rink. What I have learned though the years is a few upset people typically voice their opinions so loudly that it can be viewed as the opinion of many. So I ask … please publish some of the letters in support of this facility. I believe the majority of Alaskan’s would like more options in the winter.

Public courts would make tennis affordable and allow tennis to grow in Alaska.
Tennis is an excellent form of exercise. It’s a healthy way to strengthen our community. It promotes friendships, teaches discipline and helps develop a work ethic. It’s a lifetime sport!
