Best Tennis Courts - 2007
Tower Grove Park
While TV viewers flock to golf, NASCAR and (c'mon!) poker, tennis gets very little respect in the U.S. Still, people actually do play tennis in St. Louis. A few more in west county than in south city, to be sure all the more reason to get your racquet on at Tower Grove Park. With day passes available for $4 per person ($6 if there are two of you), Tower Grove's twelve hard courts and three grass courts represent a bargain. With apologies to last year's Best Local Boy Made Good Dan Nassif, if you're one of those basement-dwellers who think they've got a prayer to make the final table at the World Series of Poker, a trip to the tennis courts will do you a load of good, especially if you look like those pasty-faced guys on TV.
