On the Tennis Event

Tuesday is the grand opening of the brand new tennis facility in Conway. As an avid tennis player and board member of the Conway Area Tennis Association (CATA), I'd like to thank the Conway City Council, former Mayor Tab Townsell and current Mayor Bart Castleberry for making this lovely new facility a reality. It is a dream come true for many Conway tennis players. Most of us have made several weekly trips to Little Rock and North Little Rock for years in order to play tennis. We are so excited not only to be able to play in our own town, but to attract others to come and spend money here too. One of the first events CATA is sponsoring is a USTA-sanctioned tournament and we are expecting many from surrounding areas.

Tennis is an excellent sport that can be played by young and old for a lifetime. Check out the Conway Area Tennis Association's web page and Facebook page. I invite everyone interested to come out Tuesday, April 17 to check out the new tennis center and join in Game. Set. Match! at 5 p.m. and join in the festivities.
