HOPKINTON, NH – On Saturday, June 23, nearly 60 Hopkinton residents came out to celebrate the grand opening of their newly refurbished tennis courts and summer program kick-off. Children and families were invited to watch the ribbon cutting, play on the new courts, and enjoy music, refreshments and giveaways.
Hopkinton Youth Sports Association (HYSA) worked in partnership with United States Tennis Association (USTA) along with USTA New England and USTA New Hampshire to make the restoration possible. The process of applying and undergoing restorations took two years, and as a result, organized tennis is back in Hopkinton.
“It was great to be able to look around and see the community celebrating tennis together, and this project finally coming to an end after a lot of effort and perseverance from HYSA and USTA,” said Eric Driscoll, USTA New England Tennis Service Representative for Maine and New Hampshire.ADVERTISEMENT
The courts are now open for recreational use by the public. Organized programming will begin in July.
“I am so excited that these courts are getting new life, and that a whole new generation of tennis players will get to enjoy them,” said Chuck Gregory, Treasurer and Tennis Commissioner of the HYSA.
