Weston tennis courts to get a makeover

The town’s six tennis courts at Weston High School soon will get a facelift.

The finance board, school board, and Board of Selectmen all gave their stamp of approval to a plan to spend nearly $60,000 to repair the courts.

First Selectman Gayle Weinstein said of the tennis courts that the “conditions are deplorable,” and they got even worse after the winter.

Two of the six courts have minor cracks that can be sealed, Ms. Weinstein said, two have more significant damage that needs patching, and two need to be entirely resurfaced.

Ms. Weinstein said Dan Clarke, the director of facilities for the school district, got a five-year guarantee on all work done to the courts. After that time, the town will re-evaluate the tennis courts to see if they need to be moved or renovated differently.

Ellen Uzenoff, vice chairman of the school board, said the board has a “high level of confidence” in the quality assurances of the contractor because the schools have worked with the company before.

The selectmen unanimously approved on May 16 a $59,527 supplemental appropriation for the work.
