The atmosphere at public tennis courts is often sprinkled with street noise, barking dogs, crying babies, parking garage alarms and other fun things to challenge your concentration. But every once in a while there’s a tennis court, that’s so clean and pretty, that it can be mistaken for a country club or a private residence. Such are the courts at George Sterling Memorial Park, also called Alice Marble Park, in San Francisco. The views are astonishing and you really feel like you’re playing on top of the world.
Couple of downsides though – there’s very limited parking (not a big surprise in San Francisco) and the court surface is strangely hollow and dampens the bounce of the ball. Takes a little while to get used to it. Other than that – if you want to make a good impression on someone, in addition to how well you play, this might be nice court to set your next match.
