Flower Mound commissions feasibility study for outdoor tennis center
The town of Flower Mound is commissioning a feasibility study for an outdoor tennis center.
Consultants will be expected to conduct a needs assessment as well to assist the town community in determining whether to proceed with planning, funding, and developing a tennis center.
The town is seeking a system-wide approach to evaluating current tennis facilities and amenities in order to develop goals, policies, program pricing methodology, and guidelines along with achievable strategies.
Flower Mound is served by two high schools with numerous athletic facilities which include tennis centers consisting of 12 courts at each school. Recreational tennis opportunities are not currently offered to the public in either high school.
The town operates a four-court tennis facility at its Leonard and Helen Johns Community Park and a single tennis court at Westchester Park. The recommended service level for tennis courts in the town’s 2017 Parks and Trails Master Plan indicates one court per 6,000 residents. This leaves a shortage of eight tennis courts based on the current population of about 78,080.
Study objectives include assessment of partnership opportunities with public, private, and not-for-profit organizations as well as facility and program scope, size, features and amenities, site evaluation, market analysis, and initial cost estimate.
A final report will be presented to the town’s Parks Board and Town Council.
