Tennis Anyone?

Posted by Sean Rowland on August 24, 2016

CT.
It’s all about Connecticut on Friday as we have a (hopefully) two stadium visit along the coast of the Nutmeg State. Last year was my first live tennis experience at the Citi Open in DC and I’m looking forward to adding another one by heading to the WTA event held in New Haven. The Stadium Court is the third largest in the country with a capacity of 15,000 and the semifinals will be played there at 1 PM and 7 PM. Initially, I was planning on seeing the evening session, but a baseball rainout last month made me reconsider plans to add another stadium to the mix. Just an hour east is Norwich and that is where the Connecticut Tigers of the NYPL play. They have a 7 PM home game, so I will attend the less desirable (because of heat and player matchup) afternoon tennis session, then check out Dodd Stadium in the evening. It’s a 3 hour drive back home afterwards, which will make this quite a long day. There is the small threat of a shower or storm during that whole period, which would really screw things up if it rains during either of those events and I’ll keep my plans loose in case I need to change on the fly.
