Clayton's Shaw Park Tennis Center Opens Its 2013 Season
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), May 5, 2013 - Clayton's Parks and Recreation Department recently announced a partnership with the Frontenac Racquet Club to manage Clayton's Shaw Park Tennis Center and coordinate its programs while the city's Parks and Recreation Department continues to handle pass sales and registrations. The city initiated the new partnership to help strengthen the quality of its tennis programs and bolster interest in the sport.
With Frontenac Racquet Club involved, hours and programs at the tennis center have been expanded. The partnership between the Racquet Club and Clayton's Parks & Recreation Department will enhance the quality and increase the number of tennis programs with activities like Friday Night Tennis Parties, and will also make drop-in-lessons available.
"We are so pleased to have the Racquet Club on board," said Parks & Recreation Director Patty DeForrest. "This new partnership will improve the tennis experience for our residents and hopefully encourage more to use our new courts."
Shaw Park Tennis Center was recently renovated with new Post-Tensioned Concrete Tennis Courts installed during the construction. Clayton's Parks and Recreation Department staff spent two years researching and analyzing possible surfaces for the Shaw Park Tennis Center and concluded that Post-Tensioned Concrete Tennis Courts were the best fit because of their durability and low maintenance costs.
On May 1, Clayton's Shaw Park Tennis Center opened for the 2013 season. The city will celebrate the opening with the 2013 kickoff party and barbeque on Friday, May 31 from 6 to 10 p.m. Event activities will include round robin tennis with mixed men's and women's doubles. The party is free, but limited to the first 48 registrants.
To register for the Kickoff Party, call 314-290-8596. For details about the expanded hours and programs, and to register for the Party, visit www.claytonmo.gov/tennis
