According to People for Palmer Park Board member and Palmer Park Tennis Academy Director, Leonora King, the process begins with tearing up the cement and then letting the area rest over the winter. Asphalt can be put down sometime in April 2019 and the top playing surface laid sometime in May 2019.
"All of this is done to extend the longevity of the courts," King said.
A total of nine new courts will include six junior courts for the kids and one bank of courts marked for pickle ball players. Additional improvements will include new fencing, benches, nets and windscreens.
Reconstruction of the Palmer Park Tennis Courts by the City of Detroit is made possible in part by a grant from the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation.
Completion of the Tennis Courts project set for May 30, 2019
