Palm Coast Tennis Center to receive a USTA Outstanding Facility Award...

The Palm Coast Tennis Center in Palm Coast has been selected to receive a national 2010 USTA Outstanding Facility Award. The award will be presented at the USTA Semi-Annual Meeting in New York on Sunday, Sept. 5, 2010.

The USTA Outstanding Facility Award recognizes clubs and facilities in the U.S. that display high standards of construction and/or renovation, quality of court area and surface, enclosure and lighting, layout and adaptation, accessories and amenities, and evidence of good and “green” maintenance. Tennis programmatic recognitions include USTA programs, QuickStart Tennis programs, other tennis-related programs, and important contributions to the game of tennis.

I am thrilled to be receiving this award,” said USTA High Performance Coach Ken Obermeier, tennis superintendent of the City of Palm Coast, also adding:
There are so many great tennis facilities out there, just to be nominated was a privilege. To win it, on the other hand, is an honor. We look forward to continuing to grow the game of tennis, and to helping everyone who participates achieve their personal best.

In June of this year the Palm Coast Tennis Center received a $1,000 USTA Florida 'Share the Love' grant, celebrating with area children by hosting a free QuickStart Tennis Kick-Off event for 10-and-under players.

Palm Coast Tennis Center has always been a strong supporter of USTA Adult Leagues,” said USTA Florida Tennis Program Coordinator for the region, Molly Zimmer. “They have further expanded their USTA programming by applying for and receive a ‘Share the Love’ grant for start-up expenses of QuickStart Tennis. The Palm Coast Tennis Center is now the host site for USTA Jr. Team Tennis and will be offering the QuickStart age division of play this fall.”

The Palm Coast Tennis Center joins the ranks of 2009 USTA Outstanding Facility Award winners Seaview Park Tennis Facility of Palm Beach, and The Tennis Gardens at Longboat Key Club and Resort in Longboat Key.

Congratulations to Ken and the Palm Coast Tennis Center on being selected for this outstanding award,” said USTA Florida Executive Director Doug Booth. “I love travelling around Florida and seeing the plaques at the many great facilities in Florida.”
