Rock Hill Celebrates Grand Opening of New Facility

The Grand Opening of the Rock Hill Tennis Center in Rock Hill, SC was held March 24th and was attended by local officials, area tennis enthusiasts, and representatives of USTA South Carolina.

The new Director of Tennis, Tim Pleasant, was introduced, and special guest, Ed Bernier, Chairman of the Community Development Committee for USTA South Carolina addressed the crowd.

Rock Hill Mayor Doug Echols told the crowd, “The Rock Hill Tennis Center will provide the entire region with a broad range of programs and beneficial activities to meet current needs and new opportunities.”

Following a ribbon cutting, tours of the facility and court side activities, several anxious players "test drove" the new courts.

The Rock Hill Tennis Center features eight regulation hard courts, an observation deck, concession area and pro shop. A future championship court and two additional courts are part of the master plan for the facility. The center is a short 20 minute ride from Charlotte, NC and provides a great new facility for local and tournament play.

By partnering with other area tennis facilities, the City of Rock Hill is able to offer a total of 50 courts for tournament play. The Rock Hill Tennis Center offers public play, memberships, clinics and lessons.

The Rock Hill Tennis Center is a partnership between the City of Rock Hill and Rock Hill School District Three. For additional information, call the Rock Hill Tennis Center at (803) 326-3842 or visit www.RockHillRocks.com.
