What are rules for? — Part 2

So this week, I finally received my email from Seattle Parks and Recreation about the tennis court incident.

So the following is the email that I recieved.

July 21, 2014

Dear Min-Hsao Chen, 

I’m sorry for your experience at the Victory Heights Playground tennis courts.
 
Seattle Parks and Recreation’s policy is that facilities are to be used for their intended uses: tenniscourts are for tennis, which does not include “soccer tennis.” 

The only exceptions are the designated courts at Cal Anderson Park and Judkins Playfields, where dodgeball and bike polo are allowed.

The reasons for keeping tennis courts exclusively for tennis play are that:

1.   Tennis courts are the only places available for playing tennis (other activities can usually manage in other places).

2.   Activities other than tennis often harm the court surface and/or net.

You could print this out to take with you; or, if you encountered this again, maybe it would be sufficient you just to confidently state that, when you contacted Seattle Parks, the Superintendent’s Office verified that tennis courts are intended for tennis only; and if the “soccer tennis” players had any doubt, they could contact me as well at PKS_Info@seattle.gov.
 
Thanks for checking, and my apologies for my delay in replying.

Sincerely,
Laurie Dunlap
Superintendent’s Office, Seattle Parks and Recreation

So for all those Soccer Tennis players, “how ‘bout them apples!?!?”.
