A few photos of new courts

Here are a few photos from yesterday's walk around the Boar's Head grounds. We (my wife and I and our dog) head over there at least weekly lately to get some variety from walking our neighborhood streets every day.

The new courts look like they're on track for completion this summer. The concrete is down, the scoreboard is up, and two rows of bleachers are in.

The first photo is from the northeast corner. Hidden by the scoreboard is part of the golf course expansion, basically the area you see in the 3rd photo. You can see a concrete platform behind the bleachers, and to the right of that (north) is where the eventual exhibition court will be. I'm guessing that when they want more bleachers, like when Wake comes to town, or for tournaments, they'll roll in some portable bleachers like they do for the spring women's pro tournament. But, that's only my guess. Even as it is, it will be a good place to stand and watch, or to bring one's own portable seating since the bleachers are at a lower level.

The 2nd photo is from the southwest corner, where you get a better view of the bleacher area, and how the bleachers sit elevated, backed against the retaining wall.

I threw in the 3rd photo just so you can see how impressive the newly expanded golf course will be. That's where we take our walks, which I think unfortunately comes to an end in another month when the golf course reopens.
