DELPHOS — The Delphos Tennis Association christened the newly-renovated tennis courts at the Stadium Park in late August. Members Tom Klima, Tom Groves, Dick Stepleton and Brandon Groves, enjoy the opportunity to play on the re-surfaced courts.
“Thanks for putting us back in business,” Tom Groves expressed the association’s appreciation for the upgrade.“We, along with the Parks and Recreation Department, will try and keep the courts free of debris and playable at all times.”
The condition of the courts had deteriorated quite a bit over the last few years.
“Although the renovation was a small project and cost approximately $20,000, it was long overdue. The work took 8-10 days to complete and the resurfacing should last 10 years,” Parks Superintendent Craig Mansfield explained, “Replacing net ropes and straps and the metal poles, are also be part of the maintenance plan.”
The park hosts the Kiwainis sponsored 4th of July Park Festival and each year, the courts serve as an integral part of the celebration.
“We are looking forward to the community using and taking care of them,” Mansfield added.
