Greenfield Mayor Cindy McAdams and the board of aldermen have announced the appointment of a Tennis Project Committee to raise funds and coordinate the installation of new tennis courts in Greenfield.
The committee includes Frank Gibson (chairman), Bill McCall (Greenfield tennis coach), Troy Jones (alderman) and James Roy Pope (alderman).
The project to build four lighted tennis courts is for all Greenfield residents, young and old, and will be used by the high school tennis team.
The tennis team is 49-0 the past four years in district matches, has won the past five district titles, the past two regional titles and gone to state twice, but have no home tennis courts.
Tennis lessons will be made available for everyone to learn the basics of the sport.
Gibson announced that the bidding process has been completed and the goal is to raise $200,000 with the hopes that half or more can be obtained from grants and foundation monies.
Four lighted tennis courts with lights and fencing will be built on city property at the end of Callins Road and is adjacent to the part of the Greenfield Park currently housing the baseball/softball fields.
Anyone wishing to donate to this project can contact any of the committee members or can send donations to either the Greenfield Banking Company or First State Bank Greenfield and made out to the Greenfield Tennis Project. Pledges can be made by calling Gibson at 431-7897. Published in The WCP 12.13.12
