The project to rebuild tennis courts at Michigan Ave., located in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood of Schenectady, is now complete. In an effort led by 15-LOVE, more than $350,000 in funding was raised to create six 10-an-under and eight regulation sized tennis courts.
They will be the only courts of their kind from New York City to Canada, explains 15-Love Executive Director Amber Marino.
The 10 standard courts off of Schuyler Street have already been torn up to make room for eight 78-foot courts with blended lines and six 36-foot courts. The latter are for participants age 10 and under. The combination of these court types at one site is rare. Semi-permanent outdoor bathrooms will also go up at the fenced-in site.
“This is going to be a very unique site, a family-oriented site, because kids of all ages will be able to play on appropriate courts,” Marino said.
