New Wellington Tennis Center To Open June 9

Tennis great Venus Williams will headline the grand opening of the new Wellington Tennis Center on Tuesday, June 9 at 9 a.m. Williams will join Wellington officials for the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The 4,506-square-foot facility, located on Lyons Road, features 21 self-irrigated Har-Tru clay courts, a canvas-covered roof-top balcony and a pro-shop. Interior design for the pro shop came from Williams’ design company, VStarr Interiors. Architectural firm Song + Associates worked alongside Pirtle Construction on the project.

Current Wellington Tennis Center Director Tommy Cheatham will continue to manage operations at the new facility. “The anticipation for our new tennis center has been building since we broke ground back in October,” Cheatham said. “We are excited to offer a destination of this caliber to the community, highlighted by state-of-the-art tennis courts, facilities and programming.”

All members of the community are invited to come out and tour the new facility. For more info., visit
