BEST TENNIS COURTS - 2004
St. Kate's campus
Why should we tell you and everyone else our favorite hidden gem of tennis courts? Oh, yeah--that's our job. Sorry. We lost our (ahem) grip for a minute, pained as we are to divulge these fine courts, tucked away from view on the east side of St. Kate's campus, behind the dorms. Pull in the driveway off Fairview, mosey around, and eventually you'll discover six well-surfaced courts, complete with windbreakers if needed. These nets are a little busy in spring when the school team is practicing, but it quiets down in summer once most of the students have left. After your game, you can take a nice walk around the nearby rolling fields and/or catch a youth game at the cozy little baseball diamond nearby. Win or lose, it's an excellent urban escape.
