I think I knew Pat Sweeny. Was a court named after him?
I think so. There were a few courts with names above them.
I think what I like the most about these photos is that the clay courts never needed a modernized facelift.... they've still got those same green benches... :)
I worked at the Flint Tennis Club from 1945-1951. I was the concessionaire and did club house maintenance initially and later took care of the courts during the summer. Court #1 was named for Paul "Pops" Elo, who for many years was in charge of maintaining the clay courts. My father, Harold Carpenter, helped start The Flint Tennis Club at Kellar Park in 1938-39.
