Granite Shoals reviews tennis center future

By Glynis Crawford Smith

In a meeting Tuesday night that included final acceptance of the 2014-2015 budget and tax rate, the Granite Shoals City Council turned attention to the future of the Andy Roddick International Tennis Center.

Development of the center has been a project of the Andy Roddick Foundation (ARF) on land leased from the city adjacent to Quarry Park on Phillips Ranch Road. Marble Falls Independent School District elementary students already receive tennis instruction on the two QuickStart youth courts constructed on the site in 2011 and an after-school program also extends tennis instruction and life lesson guidance there.

The center was further bound to park development when the ARC pledged $64,000 toward a pair of covered adult courts for the park project that includes the Leo Manzano Hike, Bike and Run Trail—all with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department grants.
