I "grew up in a tennis family". In the late '60s, not all high school coaches were fluent in tennis. My dad and I were playing on one of our city courts when a man, a coach, began to measure the net on the adjacent court. Dad had been an advisor in the resurfacing of the courts and was a strong voice in their maintenance. He asked the man why he was measuring and told him the specifications of the net.
"We're going to put up new nets," the man replied.
"That's great, I've been asking for new nets for several months."
"We're putting up chain link."
"Why would you do that?"
"It lasts longer."
"Then, why don't you put up a brick wall?"
Two weeks later, new nets arrived. They were not chain link.
