The Oxford Park Commission invites the Lafayette-Oxford-University community to the FNC Tennis Center’s groundbreaking ceremony at the John Leslie Courts.
“As Oxford has grown, so has its love of the game of tennis,” stated the Oxford Park Commission. “For every player wishing to secure one of the only (12) city courts currently available for a match or a practice session, there are others who often must wait for a game.”
On Tuesday, August 13, the groundbreaking ceremony for the new FNC Tennis Center will take place at the Oxford Activity Center at Molly Barr and Price Street at 9:30 a.m. Refreshments will be served during the ceremony.
“The proposal calls for the construction of twelve (12) new courts –– effectively doubling the city’s present number –– along with a championship court, practice court, gathering places, park overlook, more than one hundred (100) parking spaces, and a new tennis clubhouse complete with changing rooms, bathrooms and a covered terrace,” stated the Oxford Park Commission.
