  1. Hi! I’ve played at both the Marinette as well as the Surprise courts. Honestly, you can’t ask for much more. My only gripe is the covered courts at the Marinette (truly one of a kind) need to have the glare blocked out from the north side. They’re supposedly working on that.
    The other thing is the court numbers need to be up high on the columns for better visibility, especially during events.
