I visited Miami in August. While there I went to Morningside Park’s John “Slim” Harbett Tennis Center with my stepmother, June Harbett. These courts were named after my father and June’s husband. In the late 1970s he was known as the dean of Miami tennis because he did so much to support the game.
It was wonderful to see that the person who staffs the center, Rolando Arzola, actually reminds me of my father! It was a pleasure to visit with him and to watch him interact with the tennis students at the park.
During the same visit, we also met the park manager, Omar Bayona, who obviously takes pride in the park and works hard to keep things running smoothly. Both of these gentlemen represent the best of Miami. It’s great to know Arzola and Bayona are keeping my father’s love of tennis alive and well at Morningside Park.
