May 23, 2016 – 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, 2016.
May 18, 2016 - Project is nearing completion. Courts are now color coated and will be lined tomorrow, May 19, 2016 to meet United States Tennis Association and USTA Youth Tennis program teaching standards. Residents are encouraged to stay off courts until all signs have been removed, indicating courts are ready for play.
State-of-the-art post-tension concrete technology will make up four new courts in the existing Tatlock Tennis Court Complex. This technology has been used successfully all over America and has proven to be a long-term solution in the tennis industry.
LED lighting, new fencing, seating, and shade structures will also complete the project. The courts will be color coated and lined for USTA standards as well as the USTA Youth Tennis Program.

The Summit Tennis Association has also generously contributed $100,000 toward the new courts. Several years ago, the STA donated $60,000 to the Memorial Field Tennis Courts. The STA was instrumental in the decision to proceed with post-tension concrete courts.
