City & Tennis Club Pause New Facility in Centennial Park

TennisCourt_drawingThe Plymouth Tennis Club and the City of Plymouth announce a pause in their development of a new tennis facility in Centennial Park.
For the past several years the Plymouth Tennis Club’s Project Committee has worked to build new tennis courts for the city. This year, through partnership with the City of Plymouth, the Plymouth Community School Corporation, and private donors, the Committee has made great strides toward its goal. With the Committee’s work and the generous support of numerous individuals and businesses, over $223,900 in private contributions have been raised toward the project. And comprehensive design plans for the courts were produced and approved by the Plymouth Park Board.
Throughout the process, the Plymouth Tennis Club and the City of Plymouth have sought input from various community members. In recent weeks, many questions have been raised regarding the project. The Plymouth Tennis Club and the City of Plymouth have heard the community’s questions, including those posed by their important partners at the Marshall County Blueberry Festival, a valued part of Plymouth’s history since 1966. This pause will allow the organizations to better address remaining questions before moving forward. The project will not be on the agenda for the Monday, August 11thCity Council meeting.
Tennis project planning, fundraising, and communication continues. More information about the project is available at www.plymouthtenniscourts.com .

    I’m glad to hear this. I still think there is a better place for the courts than taking the whole field that is used for sooo many good things, not just BBF. I also think even though we are told there is a lease between the school and the park, I doubt if it is enough to really cover much each year, it still falls on the park budget to cover most of it. Why not put the tennis courts right down the side of the road across from the girls softball or fix the BB courts up by the swimming pool and remove the BB courts back by drive off goshen trail then put the courts there. better yet local players are good with the courts, so let the school with the private donations put a few courts for tournements behind the high school, they have room. We have to put a stop to PHS leasing all the land it wants in the park…in limits the public and that isn’t right!
