Seneca Park tennis courts to be improved Friday, Apr 22 2016 

Louisville Metro Parks and RecreationDistrict 9 Councilman Bill Hollander and the Louisville 10 and Under Tennis Association have partnered on a project that will result in much-needed improvements to the popular courts at Seneca Park.

Starting Monday, crews from Riverside Paving, with assistance from Tennis Technologies, will begin to resurface and fill cracks on five of Seneca Park’s courts. After that is complete, similar work will be performed on the other five courts. Five courts will remain open at Seneca for use throughout the duration of the project, which is to be completed by early June. CM Hollander, the Louisville 10 and Under Tennis Association and Metro Parks combined to fund the approximately $64,000 project.

“The Seneca Park tennis courts are some of the most heavily-used in Louisville and have been badly in need of repair,” Hollander said.  “Metro Council’s Capital Infrastructure Funds are intended to help with this kind of project and we are happy to assist with it. The combination of funds, and especially the support of the USTA, will make for a better experience for all tennis players.”

“The USTA family is very excited about the proposed improvements to the tennis courts at Seneca Park. We are thankful for the support of Councilman Hollander and Louisville Metro Parks and Recreation,” said Susan Habeeb, President of the Louisville 10 and Under Tennis Association’s executive committee. “We are also excited about working with Metro Parks and Louisville Government in the future as we strive to provide tennis activities in all areas of our city.”

The Louisville Area 10 & Under Tennis Association is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to developing and promoting tennis for children age 10 & Under in a unique format using kid-sized equipment. For more information, visit http://www.louisville10andundertennis.com/.
