What About The Midlander? .....

One thing I like about the blogosphere is the ability to throw a question out there, and see what answers are thrown back ... so, here goes.

If tennis boosters do not yet have the money and the land for building a new facility, how about renovating/expanding an old one?

You'd have to go back several years to remember a health facility just off north Big Spring, east of Midland Airpark and Claydesta, that included indoor tennis courts. It's been closed up for a long time, but it's still there.

I've not been inside The Midlander for something like twenty years ... so maybe someone out there knows more about it than I do (wouldn't be the first time THAT happened), and can tell me whether it presents a viable option for the proposed tennis facility.

By the way, for what it's worth, I work at Midland College, one of a number of proposed locations for this facility.
