Edmond Public Schools and the City of Edmond have come together to construct one of the top public tennis facilities in the United States. The proposal for the new center includes 10 indoor courts, along with 18 outdoor courts, with 6 additional outdoor courts to be added at a later time, Parks and Recreation Director Craig Dishman said.
The new center is expected to open in late spring of 2019, with some outdoor courts to be open next fall, contingent upon city and Edmond Public Schools funding.
No final price has been set, but the project is expected to cost more than $14 million.
In October 2016, the Edmond City Council agreed to buy 23 acres on the northeast corner of Kelly Avenue and 15th Street for $2.5 million.
The proposed two-story center would include locker rooms for each of the three high schools and two for public use. It also would have a pro shop, meeting spaces and an exercise room.
