Kelly’s Corner 143 - Bissell’s Tennis Club
Jan Kelly writes a weekly column for Provincetown Magazine. "If you are bitten by the bug of tennis you must be willing to accept your own limitations and desire in order to develop your potential ability within those limitations." The courts themselves have their own interesting history. When Hawthorne Bissell bought the land in 1946, it was a wilderness. He hand cleared the entire area of five courts and club house with an old sickle (which is still on display at the club). The courts were put in the same year the Provincetown airport was built.
