The City of Boise Parks and Recreation Department confirmed April 4 what Boise Weekly readers already knew: that the Davis Cup will leave a legacy to the City of Boise long after this weekend's tournament is over.
"We've come up with a plan to build some permanent mini courts for the little ones," Steve Bickham, Executive Director of Idaho Tennis Association told Boise Weekly. "They would be built alongside some existing courts in a Boise park near the Greenbelt."
Indeed, the courts will be constructed in Ann Morrison Park, according to a spokesperson for Parks and Rec.
"[The construction will cost] well over $50,000," said Bickham.
The kid-sized courts will be built alongside adult courts which will be renovated. The United States Tennis Association will be donating $25,000, which will be matched by the City of Boise.
