Tennis Anyone? The Town’s tennis court is located on the north side of the park behind Town Hall, next to the Salt
Rock Grill. Reservations are not required and there is no charge for use of the court. The court has recently been
resurfaced and relined, and a new net has been installed, so it is in excellent condition. New lights have also been
installed and are on a no-fee timer system, so you may now play after dusk when the weather is more comfortable.
The court is now on a scheduled maintenance to combat the on-going issue of bird deposits. Hope you “love” our new
court and that it “serves” you well!
