McCarren Tennis Dedicated to the renovation of the tennis courts in McCarren Park, Brooklyn

26Jul/1014

We are getting new courts!

Yes, you read that correctly. The courts at McCarren Park were one of only 3 sets of public courts to be part of the "Fresh Courts" initiative sponsored by American Express and the USTA.

From the press release: "For New York, American Express’ Fresh Courts program will work with tennis courts located in Brooklyn’s McCarren Park. The 35-acre park services the Greenpoint and Williamsburg neighborhoods and currently contains seven full-sized tennis courts, one of which was recently resurfaced through the efforts of the McCarren Tennis Association and park volunteers. As part of the Fresh Courts program, the remaining courts will be completely resurfaced and renovated, and upon project completion, McCarren Park will contain six full-sized, 78-foot courts, and two permanent 36-foot courts for the QuickStart play format."

Read the full press release here.

We will post more details as we get them.
