The Oakland County Treasurer posted a notice announcing the seizure
of property at the Farmington Tennis Club, in lieu of back taxes totaling more than $5,500, on May 7.

land and facility, according to Oakland County Treasurer Andrew Meisner, the Farmington Observer states.
No warning of the club's closure was given to either members or staff, according to reports. Former tennis instructor Whitney Wasielewski told WDIV-TV
she saw signs of trouble, including a major Easter weekend tournament
being cancelled and a request that dues be paid earlier than usual.
