10-S Tennis Supply recently published an educational article in the USPTA ADDvantage section of Tennis Industry Magazine. The title of the article was “If I Only Knew Then What I Know Now…USPTA Leaders Share Court Supply and Maintenance Wisdom with Under 30 Peers.”
As part of our research for this article, 10-S Tennis Supply asked 50+ experienced Tennis Directors to let us know the three things they wish they knew about tennis court supplies or tennis court maintenance before they became a Tennis Director. Many of their responses were included in the article. However, we did not have room for all of them and wanted to share the others with you.
So…we will post some additional thoughts over the next couple of weeks from different USPTA Tennis Directors wish they knew when they started out. Today we’ll hear from…

- How to repair a sprinkler head and or a line break.
- The effectiveness of regular raking in controlling mold mildew and hardpan build up rather than brushing.
- Starting with using less rather than more when resurfacing because you can always add more clay.
- Rolling and letting the court harden in the sun rather than watering to fast.
- Having a hurricane plan and supplies ready rather than a last minute rush with phone lines being down and limited supplies available.
Chris Lee is the Director of Tennis at Aberdeen Golf and Country Club. He has been there since 2005. He played tennis at Lynn University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science.
