Ottumwa Tennis Courts Social Event Planned

Posted Date: 12/28/2023

Exciting improvements are on the horizon in Ottumwa in 2024.

Ottumwa Schools, City of Ottumwa, and Friends of Ottumwa’s Parks are collaborating to construct eight new tennis courts. High school students were unable to practice or compete on these courts last spring due to their condition. The courts will be first-class, long-lasting, and provide a quality playing surface for our prep boys and girls tennis teams, youth and adult league players, and tennis enthusiasts. Courts will continue to be open to the public when not used for prep practice and tennis meets.

The Friends of Ottumwa’s Parks group is taking the lead to secure the additional funds to complete project amenities such as restrooms, concessions, bleachers, gazebo, parking, etc. By supporting this project, you are investing in the health, growth, and future success of Ottumwa, Iowa.

Ottumwa Schools, the City of Ottumwa, and Friends of Ottumwa’s Parks invite you to attend a social hour on Wednesday, January 17, 2024 at 5:00 p.m. at Ottumwa Golf and Social Club, 304 E. Golf, Ottumwa. Appetizers and beverages will be available. You’ll learn about the project, watch a video presentation, and have an opportunity to be one of the first to show your support.

Thanks for your commitment to Ottumwa and we look forward to seeing you on January 17. Please RSVP by calling (641) 684-0368.

A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for January 8, 2024, at 4:00 p.m. at the site of the tennis courts. The event will be attended by school officials, community leaders, athletes, and supporters of the district.
