Tennis club members are busy adding enhancements to the new Red Sail Courts – News – New Bern Sun Journal

Now that the new court surface is completed, the Fairfield Harbour Tennis Club members are busy adding additional enhancements to improve the look and play of the Red Sail tennis facility. During the past two months the club has refurbished the courtside benches and bag hangers, thanks to Rick Miller; improved the landscape with two beautiful planters at the front gate, thanks to Nina Michaud; and added an outside bench for visitors and waiting players, thanks to Jeff Hardy. In addition the club’s skilled craftsmen Jim Hampson and Vinny Michaud are now finished building and installing the new practice backboard along the back fence. This board has been engineered with a slope to provide a realistic return to the ball. More improvements are planned in the future: the club plans to add a windscreen and, with the guidance of the POA Maintenance and Grounds Supervisor, we are exploring the possibility of painting the aging fencing and adding a concrete pad at the main entrance gate.

The Red Sail Courts are reserved for the following:

Women: Monday and Wednesday 8 am and Friday 7:30 am

Contact Pam Miller if you are interested

Men: Monday and Friday 9 am

Contact Lloyd Moore if you are interested

Cardio Tennis is in the planning stages for fall: Contact Jim Hampson to find out more and get on the list
