Belton, South Carolina: Free public tennis but not during church

Stories of people's lives in tennis

Click for larger viewFirst Baptist Church of Belton owns the land across the street, where the Belton Tennis Center is located. The church leases the property for $500 a year to the privately funded public Tennis Center, where anyone from anywhere can play anytime for free on the courts, any day of the year. Except Sunday before noon.

“You can’t play while church is going on,” said Rex Maynard, who runs Maynard’s Home Furnishings nearby. “I’ve walked out of the Baptist church some morning and somebody’s over there playing tennis. And I’m over there saying, ‘I’m sorry, you can’t play till after noon.’

“Somebody from out of town doesn’t know. They don’t mean any harm. They just saw tennis courts and went and played.”

Maynard (above in red, with Drew Durden at the Special Populations Unified Doubles [SPUD] tournament in Belton) began playing tennis at 8 years old.
