GREENFIELD TENNIS PROJECT — Ronnie Cook, area manager of Hamilton-Ryker, presents a $1,000 check to Frank Gibson and Bill McCall of the Greenfield Tennis Committee. The donations and pledges for new tennis courts in Greenfield continue to grow, reaching $28,500 last week. “Hamilton-Ryker is a proud supporter of Weakley County athletics,” Cook said. “We are pleased to present a check for $1,000 for the addition of tennis courts in Greenfield. This is a very worthy project that will not only help the Greenfield tennis team, the courts will be great for all Greenfield residents.” Gibson also announced that any business or individual contributing $10,000 can sponsor one of the tennis courts or can hang a plaque on the court in memory of someone. The project is to build four lighted tennis courts to be used by all Greenfield residents, including the high school girls’ tennis team (which is 50-0 the past five years in district matches, has won the past five district titles, the past two regional titles, and gone to state twice, but has no home tennis courts). Coach Bill McCall said, “There are 19 girls playing on the tennis team this year and they began the season with an exhibition victory over Obion County and a win at Milan.” Anyone wishing to donate to this project can contact any of the committee members (Gibson, McCall, Troy Jones, Cindy McAdams, Dr. Roy Whaley, Willie Trevathan, Ronnie Cook, Jimmy Croom or James Roy Pope) or can send donations to either the Greenfield Banking Company or the  First State Bank Greenfield and made out to the Greenfield Tennis Project. Pledges can be made by calling Gibson at 731-431-7897.
