Audubon Park Tennis Center Celebrates Its Grand Re-Opening After Hurricane Katrina Strikes

October 30, 2006 08:32 AM

The Audubon Park Tennis Center in New Orleans, Louisiana will host a free grand re-opening party on Saturday, October 28th from 9:00 am until 12 noon. The party will celebrate the repairs of the park since Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf coast and the facility.

After Hurricane Katrina hit, the National Guard set up trailers and housing on the courts for approximately three months. This did seriour damage to the courts. The Audubon Public Tennis Association, Inc., received a grant from USTA to resurface the courts with new Rubico, new nets and lines. Thankfully, the fences, administration building and storage shed survived the catastrophe. The newly resurfaced courts are now open for lessons and public play. The Center hired Chris Barbe as their Head Tennis Pro and they will be starting clinics and group lessons this week.

At the party, they will host tennis exhibitions, instruction from area tennis professionals and a celebrity challenge match. Also at the family event will be games, prizes, food, soft drinks and information on local USTA programs.

The grand re-opening party is sponsored by the New Orleans Metro Area Tennis Association (NOMATA) and The United States Tennis Association (USTA).

Please call (504)-895-1042 for more information.
