Each court was recently color-coated and lined to meet United States Tennis Association (USTA) and USTA Youth Tennis program teaching standards. New fencing, LED lighting, seating, and shade structures are also additions to the facility. Evening play is permitted until 10:30 p.m. as lighting structures will not work past this time. Residents are encouraged to stay off courts until all signs have been removed, indicating that courts are ready for play.
“Through the support of the city, county and Summit Tennis Association, we have created a fabulous new tennis complex for the Summit community,” explains Director of Community Programs Judith Leblein Josephs.
The Tatlock Tennis Court Replacement Project was funded through the City’s Capital Improvement Fund, the Union County Kids Recreation Trust Fund, and by a $100,000 donation from the Summit Tennis Association.
Reservations for court play are suggested, but not required, and those with reservations will have priority on the courts. To make a reservation, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
