Clayton County Tennis Center Supports Pickleball with New Courts

Clayton County Tennis Center Supports Pickleball: After a months-long renovation project, the Clayton County Tennis Center is now home to six new pickleball courts. The $600,000 reconstruction project not only includes the new courts for the fast-growing sport of pickleball but also features 15 newly resurfaced tennis courts with new fencing, reflecting a significant investment in the county’s recreational facilities.

The project, which began in January, culminated with a grand reopening on Wednesday, May 29. Clayton County Commissioner DeMont Davis helped celebrate the occasion by presenting a National Tennis Month proclamation, underscoring the importance of the renovations.

“We are getting really involved in the pickleball industry, and this is just beginning,” Davis said, adding, “We’re going to be doing a lot of great things here at the Clayton County International Park at the Tennis Center. We’re hoping folks do come out.”

The renovations at the Tennis Center are part of a broader initiative to upgrade tennis facilities across Clayton County, with the total price tag reaching $1.5 million. This comprehensive approach demonstrates the county’s commitment to enhancing its recreational offerings and supporting both tennis and pickleball communities.

The Clayton County Tennis Center has a history of hosting tournaments and events. With the recent improvements, it aims to expand its programming significantly, according to Clayton County Tennis Center Racquet Sports Director Tracey Nicole Austin.

“The recent $600,000 project, its completion, and the county’s public declaration to its tennis community through a proclamation demonstrate the county’s commitment to supporting the tennis community and efforts toward accessibility and inclusion in the sport,” Austin said in a statement.

Davis also announced the creation of a Clayton County Sports Council, which he believes will significantly benefit the community. “We’re going to go a long way — not just tennis and pickleball but other sports in this community,” he said. The Sports Council will focus on leveraging sports to drive economic growth within the county, highlighting the multifaceted benefits of investing in local sports infrastructure.
