NEWS FROM PARAMOUNT TENNIS – JANUARY 2019

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR:  I hope everyone had a wonderful time over the holidays with family and friends and are looking forward to a great new year.  Paramount Tennis Club had a very good year and is looking forward to 2019 to be just as strong.  Between Westlake and Medina, we have close to 1450 tennis playing members, with capacity to add more members.  This past year we re-surfaced 4 courts in Westlake and will re-surface the remaining 4 courts in August 2019.  Our goal is to keep our courts in top condition, so our members have a great tennis playing experience.  Medina will be on schedule for re-surfacing in 2020 and 2021.  Both facilities are now fitted with LED light fixtures on the courts, allowing us to reduce our carbon footprint while gaining the benefit of reduced electrical cost, lower maintenance costs and better lighting levels.  As always, we want thank our members for being active supportive members and continually promoting our facilities to the tennis community.  You are the reason for our success – Thank you and Happy New Year.
