Many times the traditional court sweeping brushes don’t do a good job at lightly smoothing out the courts. Here is an “invention” that does the job better and helps in recycling at the same time!
Naples and New Hampshire tennis friend Bill Simonton, had his northern club put together a device that he first saw done by Naples’ Hal Harder. The simple concept is to take part of a used tennis court net, fold it over several times, run a PVC pipe through the end and tie off with a rope to use as a pully.
I used the device at Bill’s club and it did a good job of smoothing out the court AND picking up leaves (better than the brush does).
Thanks to Bill and Hal for the idea.
