Tennis in Central Park, anyone?

Tennis courts in Central Park

The tennis courts in Central Park where Christopher plays and beats his arch enemy, Devon

I never played tennis in Central Park. The area was too dangerous when I was growing up, but here’s a picture of the tennis courts west of the reservoir where I have Christopher and Devon duke it out in Central Park Story Book One.

I became more involved in sports as I grew older (crew, squash and other nearly extinct sports) and eventually settled on becoming a tennis instructor and coach which is how I was able to come up with the tennis scene for my book.

Below is a picture of me giving a lesson, not in Central Park but five hundred miles south in the mountains of West Virginia!

‘Watch the ball and bend your knees. That’ll be fifty dollars please.’
