Balls Out for Atwater Village

Looks like the San Gabriel Valley is being strung along. Taxpayer-funded tennis courts are being hogged by private lessons. It's driven them to make a racket here on Landlocked Treasure Island. From the Pasadena Star-News:

POPULAR IS NOT A STRONG enough word to describe The Racket Doctor store in Atwater Village west of Glendale...

After picking out a racket frame, lightning-quick technicians strung your racket while you waited, as if they were weaving bamboo baskets. Before I could say "Breakfast at Wimbledon," our two new rackets were strung...

If only getting a court to play on was that easy.
