The CTA continues to work closely with MCPR and is very excited about their efforts towards enhancements for tennis programming in the park venues, including this public assessment related to current operations, policies and procedures. Additionally, as a continuation of the MCPR Master Plan process, the CTA has maintained communications with MCPR regarding the concept for a community tennis facility.  The CTA Board of Directors encourage you to attend one or more of the upcoming community workshops, at a location/time that is most convenient for you. These workshops are open to all and are scheduled for September 23, October 5, and October 21. 

Following a general presentation on tennis court operations, programming and facilities, facilitated group discussions will be used to explore key topics of interest to the community. While it is especially important that current public court users participate, all tennis players, tennis professionals and enthusiasts stand to benefit from the outcome of these meetings.
