Constitutional attorneys believe Shreveport is overstepping its authority in closing tennis courts at private clubs.

Royal Alexander says this is a step over the line and he wonders what will be next.

Police Chief Ben Raymond strongly believes he has the authority to close tennis courts at private clubs, but he tells KEEL News the folks at Pierremont Oaks and Southern Trace were very cooperative and did not balk when the officers arrived to ask them to comply. He explains his reasoning behind this decision.

KEEL News reached out to Bossier CAO Pam Glorioso who tells us public tennis courts are closed, but "to my knowledge we've not had any complaints about private courts. We hope that people are using the social distancing guidelines and not gathering at any facility"
