Exciting News – Morgan Courts
We are excited to announce that construction has begun on the Morgan tennis courts. Construction began on Monday, August 10th and we hope to have new courts completed this fall!
The Minneapolis Park Board and Love Morgan Courts/Support the Courts joined forces for the past three years to secure funding to replace the Morgan tennis courts. Thank you to all of you who have supported this project, either financially and/or in lending your support to petitions. In particular, we want to thank our donors and neighborhood supporters –
- USTA Northern Grant
- USTA National Grant
- Hennepin County Youth Sports Grant
- Lynnhurst Neighborhood Association Grant
- Washburn Foundation Grant
- Support the Courts Foundation
- Private donations and Give to the Max day donations
We’d also like to thank all the work the Minneapolis Park Board has contributed to this project. We would not have been able to get this done without them!
The project is expected to move quickly with grading, installation of fence posts and paving to be completed by the last week of August. Once that is completed, fencing will be installed and the asphalt needs to cure for 30 days before we are able to color coat. We plan to color coat in early October, however we need warm weather for several days in order to complete the work. If the weather does not cooperate, we will color coat in the Spring of 2021.
