SE Raleigh to get $5 million tennis facility

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

Raleigh will build a new tennis center in southeast Raleigh after the City Council approved the plan Tuesday.

The $5 million center will be located at 3935 Barwell Road, near the Barwell Road Community Center and the Barwell Road Elementary School. It is expected to be ready in 2015.

Raleigh plans to have about 20 outdoor tennis courts as it builds new courts in the city for the first time in 12 years. The city also will have the first indoor public tennis court in town.

The funding will come from revenues from the two-thirds bond fund Parks and Recreation bond issue approved in April 2012 and $1 million in private donations. The project is scheduled for completion in late 2015.
 
The new tennis center will join the Millbrook Exchange Tennis Center and the Cary Tennis Center as the third facility in the Raleigh area capable of hosting large tennis tournaments. The new park will be similar in scale and features to the Millbrook Exchange Tennis Center.
