I can't believe the town of Speedway took them out... there should have been a Historical Landmark plaque protecting the hollow courts.
I grew up watching Jimmy Rayl and the Vans Arsdale twins playing there. As I got older I got to play against the best players in Central Indiana there, Rick Mount, Billy Keller, George McGinnis and Speedway's own Scott Neat and Tom Gilbert.
When I was a Freshman in High School George McGinnis who was a Junior or Senior at Indpls. Washington sent my shot back into my face and I came home with a red badge of courage that Mom had to get on me to clean up.
It was surrounded by trees on all directions except along their Northern sideline and they were the only courts that always had good nets with shade in Central Indiana... that was why they were so popular.
I was out on my bicycle this morning and touring the town of Speedway when I came across this abomination... it looks like they've been gone for some time so this probably isn't the first time I noticed this but I must be blocking it out because the wounds tore fresh today.
Oh dear lordy how can anybody suggest we are better off today?
