RTA Donates 30K to the City of Raleigh for Court Resurfacing
The Raleigh Tennis Association continues to promote, administer, and grow tennis for all communities in Raleigh. One of our key initiatives is tennis court advocacy. Typically, this takes the form of encouraging City government to support projects that provide new tennis courts for Raleigh. But this past Tuesday, it took on a different form. The Raleigh Tennis Association donated $30,000 to the City of Raleigh to be used by Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources for resurfacing of existing tennis courts. RTA’s President Bill Edwards and Executive Director Julie Dick presented a check to Ken Hisler, Assistant Director for Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources, at the December 4th Raleigh City Council meeting. Mayor Nancy McFarlane announced the check presentation and thanked the RTA for the donation and the continued partnership with the City of Raleigh.
It is important that our existing public tennis courts, especially those used for USTA leagues and programming, are maintained in good condition so all tennis players can continue to enjoy the game with good facilities.
The RTA partners with the City of Raleigh, local organizations and private clubs to help make tennis accessible for all players and provide excellent facilities for our growing tennis community.
