September Querbes Tennis Center Update

The Querbes Tennis Center Committee continues to meet with SPAR at least monthly discussing and working on the renovation and plans for the Tennis Center moving forward. 

Although the CTA has received comments and questions about the perceived slow progress, the City and the contractor assures us that we are still on target for completing the project the beginning of January. Much of the work is in preparation for the new items and not immediately visible to someone just looking at the site and/or not familiar with all the prep work required. A listing of all the work that has been completed is provided to the Querbes CTA Committee on a regular basis. 

A summary of items that are of interest to most CTA members are the following;

  • RFP’s (Request for Proposals) for the positions of Tennis Professional – Querbes Tennis Center and Tennis Professional – Southern Hills Tennis Center have been posted and will remain open for 30 days.
