On March 4 at 6 pm the City of Round Rock Parks and Recreation Department will open the new tennis building located by the Old Settlers Park Tennis Courts at 3300 E Palm Valley Blvd.
Rick Atkins, Director of Round Rock Parks and Recreation; President of the Round Rock Tennis Association Gwen Kingery; and avid tennis player and former City Council Member Ted Williamson will be in attendance to celebrate the opening.
“As the Sports Capital of Texas, we are very proud to be opening another wonderful facility to promote healthy lifestyles and athletics,” Rick Atkins director of Parks and Recreation Department said. “With the popularity of the tennis courts at Old Settlers Park, we knew that a building and restroom facility was in high demand.”
The new 1,204 square foot facility allows for hosting tournaments because of the amenities it includes: temperature controlled bathrooms for the fluctuating Texas weather and ample storage space for the Tennis Association. The building includes a Pro Shop area as well as three stalls in both the men’s and women’s restrooms. In the future, tennis players will also have the benefit of Internet access.
Contractors for the building were F.T. Woods Construction and J. Jacobs Commercial. The indestructible architecture reminds users of the hill country with its country-style outdoor patio and front porch. The building was funded as part of the Old Settlers Park Sports Complex Improvement Project which includes $18.2 million in renovations to Old Settlers Park.
The building will be open for the general public during the hours of 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. After hours, the tennis leagues will have predominant use of the facility.
