Tennis lovers have a lot to be happy about in Quincy.

The Quincy Park District recently finished resurfacing half of the tennis courts at the Greeman Tennis Center at Reservior Park in Quincy.

The original surface had a lot a wear and tear from many years of use, including holes where the surface was completely gone.

The damage made it unsafe and it was much harder to use the courts.

The resurfacing work started last week and took three to four days to complete.

Quincy Park District Recreation and Marketing Supervisor Tim Klobe says its Reservoir Park is one of the most important parks in the Quincy park system.

"Because of the Greeman Tennis Center, because of all the open space, the shelter, the playground," Klobe said. "Families use it to play tennis, for picnics, family reunions, all kinds of great family events and that's why its so important for us to make sure that Reservoir Park is in tip, top shape."

The resurfacing cost $11,900.

The Quincy Park District has plans to resurface the other half of the tennis courts next year if it can get a grant from the U.S. Tennis Association to help offset the costs.
