The Wright Township Municipal Park tennis courts are all set for competitive and recreational play, thanks to the resurfacing of the two lighted tennis courts.
In addition to residents using the courts, the Crestwood School District also utilizes them for the high school’s tennis program.
The lighted courts have not been resurfaced since the Wright Township Park was built in the mid 1970’s. When it became evident major repairs were needed for the lighted courts, the township contacted the school district for financial assistance.
“The total cost to resurface the two courts was $64,000,” explains Supervisor Don Zampetti. “We contacted the school district for assistance and they in turn gave us $20,000 toward the repairs of the total cost.”
Zampetti notes ten years ago, the other only two courts were resurfaced at a cost of $20,000. This year’s work was a significant increase in cost.
Work on the courts began last October but ceased with the winter weather. The courts were completed in May which was perfect timing for tennis season.
“We now have four courts in very good shape for the residents and the tennis teams,” concludes Zampetti.
The supervisors invite everyone to come out and enjoy them.
