Oconee County BOC Approves Herman C. Michael Tennis Court Project

Six courts to be repaired, including striping for pickleball on two

The Oconee County Board of Commissioners approved repairs to a total of six tennis courts, including four regulation tennis courts and two quick start tennis courts, at Herman C. Michael Park at its October 1 regular meeting. In addition, the two quick start courts will be striped so that they may be used as pickleball courts when not utilized for tennis programming.

The total cost of the repairs to the courts will be $56,698. The project is scheduled to begin in mid-November with completion expected by the end of December, barring any weather delays.

“The Oconee County Parks and Recreation Department strives to provide quality parks by investing in the ongoing maintenance of park facilities, as well as being responsive to the recreational interests of the community,” says Director Lisa Davol. “Oconee County continues to have a high rate of tennis participation, and pickleball is becoming more popular. Both are lifetime sports that provide physical, mental, and social health benefits for all involved.”
