3/6/2019 Querbes Tennis Center Update

The Northwest Louisiana CTA Querbes Tennis Center committee continues regular meetings with SPAR, most recently on 3/6/2019. The tennis center closed effective 2/1/2019. Programs/clinics/lessons/etc. have been moved to either Southern Hills or Cockrell tennis centers. Please contact David Kimball (318-673-7784) with any questions. The projected re-opening date is 12/31/2019. This may seem like a long time (and it is), but when the center reopens we will have a NEW QUERBES. All courts are being redone. This includes 6 soft, 5 hard and two 18-foot courts. Lighting, curbing, fencing, and the building (with wheelchair access to the office and restrooms) are all being completely renovated! The building work is almost complete!

The total cost for all the renovations significantly exceeds a million dollars. This project would not be underway if not for the Querbes Park Foundation and its founder James West, who have stepped up to guarantee a $250,000 line of credit to get the project started now, while we raise the funds to pay off the line of credit. This $250K was matched by the city in addition to its already substantial commitment to the project. We are applying for grants, asking for donations, doing fundraisers, etc. to raise this substantial sum. This can only be accomplished if everyone steps up and participates in a major way. 

Querbes Tennis Center has played a major role in developing a tennis community in Northwest Louisiana, and we need your help bringing her back to that role once again.
