The Querbes Tennis Center renovation continues to move forward and opening is scheduled for the end of January and will be available for 2020 Spring Season in February!
The lights are up, fencing in place, irrigation and electrical work completed, painting and clean up work ongoing, and both the hard and soft court bases are ready for the final stages which will begin next week!
There have been a few delays since the last update, primarily due to unforeseen health problems with the soft court subcontractor. This is the subcontractor that was highly recommended due to his experience with numerous soft court builds and renovations in Louisiana and the surrounding area. The primarily contractor has addressed the issue and project is back on track to be completed by the end of January.
SPAR has also ordered and is installing new glass in the Club House that was not originally in the budget as well as purchasing all new accessories such as benches and score boards. Shade structures are also being purchased and will be installed.
Again, Querbes can host teams for the spring season as planned.
Preliminary interviews for the tennis director at Querbes have been conducted and finalists will be coming to Shreveport for additional interviews in the next couple of weeks.
