Thanks to pandemic, Stonington tennis courts seeing a lot of play
Stonington — One might not think of tennis as a winter sport.
But the Stonington Community Center, or COMO, paddle tennis courts are open for members with lessons, match play, clinics and open court availability.
Eric and Laura Beverly of Pawcatuck were bundled up for a lesson with coach Kris Bonkowski on Thursday. Bonkowski said the courts have seen "way more people this year," even on a cold winter day, probably a result of the pandemic.
