Tennis Court Renovations Approved for Old Fort Park

Construction is expected to begin in late Spring 2024 with an expected completion in Fall 2024.

The Murfreesboro City Council recently voted to approve an agreement with Steelhead Building Group, LLC for renovation of the Tennis Court at Old Fort Park.

The court renovations at Old Fort Park includes resurfacing of six tennis courts, fencing, lighting, additional pedestrian access, bleacher pads and the transition of two tennis courts to six pickleball courts with a hitting wall in between. The cost of renovation is estimated at $1,244,403 and funded by the American Rescue Plan Act (APRA).

“We are excited to see renovations get underway on the Tennis Court in Old Fort Park,” said Murfreesboro Mayor Shane McFarland. “The decision to add pickleball courts to the outdoor Tennis Court area comes with the recognition that pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the U.S. and has captured the excitement of all ages and skill levels.”

The project will begin with demolition of the eight original tennis courts. Construction is expected to begin in late Spring 2024 with expected completion in Fall 2024.

The new outdoor Tennis and Pickleball courts slated for this Fall will be located near the eight-court Adams Indoor Tennis Complex at 925 Golf Lane in Old Fort Park. The Adams Tennis Complex was dedicated in 2015.
