New Tennis Courts in Atlantic

Andrea Gallagher | September 23, 2021



Tennis enthusiasts in Atlantic will soon have access to four new tennis courts, thanks in part to a $40,000 Public Facilities Grant from the USTA.  A ribbon cutting for the new courts will be held Saturday, Oct. 23, at Atlantic High School. The time is to be determined. 



Stuart Dusenberry, Atlantic Parks and Recreation chairman, said this will be the first time in Atlantic history that tennis courts will be at the high school. Now the players won’t have to drive across town to access the courts. In addition, the new courts have lights as well.



“We have had a long history of good tennis here and the new courts are part of a several million-dollar athletic upgrade, along with our football stadium, track/soccer stadium, and baseball/softball complex,” Dusenberry said. “Atlantic majorly needed to update several of our facilities.”



Representatives from USTA Missouri Valley, Atlantic Tennis Association, Atlantic Community Schools, Atlantic Park and Recreation and Atlantic high school teams will be at the ribbon cutting.
