Tennis Master Plan

Love All, Serve All

A Proposal By the OPC To Double the City’s Tennis Court Capacity And Create New Economic Opportunities for Sports Tourism Through Development of the John Leslie Tennis Facility

As Oxford has grown, so has its love of the game of tennis. Without it, the level and sophistication of leisure recreation in the city would not be what it is today for the ever-increasing number of youths and adults who take part in both instructional programs and league play. For every player wishing to secure one of the only (12) city courts currently available for a match or a practice session, there are others who often must wait for a game.

 

This consistently high recreational usage of municipal courts is a measure of the success of the Oxford tennis program at every level, yet it also presents a problem to be addressed in assuring that there continues to be an adequate number of courts for players both now and in the future. In order to address this pressing issue, the Oxford Park Commission is proposing a major new development to the current John Leslie Tennis facility that would meet this greater demand while creating new economic opportunities that, in effect, serve all of the citizens of Oxford. 

 

The proposal calls for the construction of twelve (12) new courts –– effectively doubling the city’s present number  –– along with a championship court, practice court, gathering places, park overlook, more than one hundred (100) parking spaces, and a new tennis clubhouse complete with changing rooms, bathrooms and a covered terrace.

 

The Oxford Park Commission would use this facility to offer instructional play for both youths and adults, create league play for adults and junior team tennis, provide a home court for Oxford High School tennis, stimulate economic growth in the community through the hosting of state and regional tournaments, and most of all, create more opportunities for area citizens to enjoy tennis as a leisure-time activity.
