NORTH KINGSTOWNâOn Tuesday evening, the North Kingstown School Committee discussed the potential of removing the aging tennis courts at Wickford Middle School. Superintendent of schools Philip Auger detailed the reasoning behind the request, stating the courts posed a safety threat to students, as well as detracting from the schoolâs appearance.
âThe tennis courts havenât gotten the attention that they used to and have deteriorated to the point that they are very rusty, and falling over to one side,â said Auger. âIt doesnât seem like a safe place for our kids and is an eye sore.â
