After a ten-year hiatus, Glen Oaks Community College is pleased to announce it has recently completed maintenance and restoration work on three of the six tennis courts on campus and they are now open for public use.
“Our maintenance crews patched up quite a few cracks, some of which were pretty severe,” said Bruce Zakrzewski, dean of finance and administrative services. “Although the courts are not in “tournament condition,” they are in good enough shape for use by our students and members of the community.”
The repairs required pouring cement in the cracks and holes. The cost was nominal since it was done primarily through the college’s maintenance department.
According to Steve Proefrock, GOCC athletic director, the tennis courts were last used by the college’s tennis team in 2003.
The courts are free and open to the public daily on a first-come, first-served basis, weather permitting. Any questions can be directed by calling the information desk at the college at (269) 467-9945. The College is located on Shimmel Road near Centreville.
