The renovated Washington Park tennis courts will be officially presented to the public tonight.
A ribbon-cutting is planned for this (Wednesday) evening at five o’clock to show off the courts. Park district officials say they were built to US Tennis Association standards, with a new color scheme… a blue court with green on the outside areas. This scheme is in use at the US Open and other major tournaments, and is said to improve players’ ability to see the ball.
The $90,000 project also includes special “blended” lines for 10 and under play on some of the 12 courts.
