The City of Summit is announcing that the Tatlock Tennis Court Replacement Project has reached completion. Four new courts with state-of- the-art post-tension concrete technology will be ready for play beginning Tuesday, May 24.
Within the past week, each court was color coated and lined to meet United States Tennis Association and USTA Youth Tennis program teaching standards. LED lighting, new fencing, seating, and shade structures are also new additions to the courts. Evening play is permitted until 10:30 p.m. only; 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 Josephs. “I look forward to our beautiful new courts being put to good use very soon.”
The Tatlock Tennis Court Replacement Project is funded through the City’s Capital Improvement Fund, the Union County Kids Recreation Trust Fund, and by a generous donation from the Summit Tennis Association. Leading the project along with city engineers is project designer, Thomas Miller of Premiere Product Design. Miller has developed extensive experience in the design of athletic complexes through the years. The contractor for the project is Classic Turf of Connecticut.
Plans for the official opening ceremony will be announced in early June.
