This past Tuesday,September 9th at around 11:30 four 50 something women were “playing” tennis at the lovely, idyllic Bennington Heights Park. For a whopping $100 a season you get to be a “member” of this tax payer supported “Club”. But hey, they’re Members. So up walks an African American Woman with tennis gear, six rackets and a desire to play. The gate is locked. It’s a “private club” you see. But she’s early for her game with another Member and wants to practice for 30 minutes before he (a Member)gets there. They’re not familiar with his name and they refuse her entry. Cause she’s not a Member of this esteemed Club. And well, she’s Different. So they not so politely refuse her entrance to their “Club”. She’s upset. Really upset. But she waits for her friend to come so they can play. He shows up and the 50 something’s ask him as well whether he “belongs”. He does, cause he has the code to the gate. So they begin to play. And the 50 something White Women watch as the “Guest” begins to play. Really,really well. Turns out she’s a Top 10 in the WORLD PLAYER. And she’s really,really disappointed in Toronto. And Canada. And the R______t 50 something’s of Bennington Perfect Heights. Share this with anyone you know around them. Shame.
