Tennis controversy solved! The Anchorage tennis association claims there are 11,000 active tennis players in Anchorage. OK. So here’s my idea. If 1,000 of the wealthiest players pool together $8,500 each that would cover the $8.5 million dollar price tag. Then charge the other 10,000 active players $20 bucks a month to play. That would raise $2.4 million dollars a year, thus paying for the facility in less than four years. Not to mention the millions in tennis balls, rackets, snacks, Billie Jean King posters, etc.
This is a gold mine! I would be first in line to pay a measly $20 a month to play with the mayor and his buddies. The ball is in your court, tennis lovers.
