Homeless in Vancouver: Tennis anyone? Anyone at all?

Outdoor tennis courts in Vancouver’s Fairview neighbourhood—the three courts I saw—were empty of people.

It must have been the rain.

Apparently tennis players don’t like to get their balls wet.

Well, their tennis balls, I mean. They seem to absorb water, which naturally makes them heavier and affects their bounce, but it doesn’t sound like they recover their performance even after they dry out.

I also read that tennis balls have an active tennis life measured in hours.

Their afterlife as dog chew-toys is at least measured in days.
