Improvements to Tennis Center coming soon!

by Kristen Hogan | Jun 26, 2017
The Y has received matching grant dollars from the United States Tennis Association, The Southern Region Tennis Association and the Louisiana Tennis Association. These grants, matched by YMCA of the Capital Area dollars, will be used for repairs to all 20 courts! This will allow us to proceed with $200,000 of the roughly $340,000 dollars in Capital Improvements that we have identified.  

Enhancements will include:
 •Replacing the clay court sprinkler system that was destroyed by the flood.
 •Cutting and capping all the light poles that are connected to fence and removing the center pole on the clay courts.
•New light poles, new electrical wires and footers for at least 3 banks of clay courts.
•Resurfacing the rubico on all 10 clay courts
•Shaping around the outside of the clay courts to help with drainage.
•Resurfacing all 10 hard courts. 

Please look for more information soon as we enter the construction phase and have to close off different parts of the tennis center to complete the renovations.
