New Tennis Facility at Laurel Park
CATA is working with the city of Conway to create a new facility to support the growth of tennis.
Conway tennis facilities are inadequate for the needs of the community. Compared to other similar-sized cities, Conway is dramatically lagging in providing families opportunities for tennis play. Currently, organized tennis is not possible in Conway, greatly decreasing the citizens’ opportunities for community events, physical activity, and resulting economic stimulation. The Conway Area Tennis Association (CATA) and many other Conway area residents are supporting the development of a new tennis facility.
OBJECTIVE: For the city to prioritize funding for an indoor/outdoor family tennis and tournament facility.
Conway Area Tennis Association (CATA) has brought together a community coalition to facilitate this proposed development including representatives from schools and colleges, city parks, U.S. Tennis Association (USTA), businesses, and Conway residents. Additionally, representatives from surrounding smaller cities in the Conway area are supportive and involved with this plan. Considerable planning for this development has been accomplished and we now have a concrete plan for action. We have requested funding for a new tennis facility to provide year round play. And it was approved!
TIME FRAME: We request 2016 budgeting for a 2017 start time for this project.
The project consists of:
• 3,400 square foot entry building with staffed proshop
• 2,600 square foot locker room and
indoor/outdoor covered viewing “spine”
• Eight outdoor tennis courts
