[ARCHIVED] Jack Adams Tennis Center Dedication Ceremony

Please join Mayor Joseph P. Riley, Jr. and the City Council of Charleston at the Dedication Ceremony to celebrate the renovation of the Jack Adams Tennis Center (209 Congress Street) at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 4, 2015.

The renovations consisted of the demolition of the courts and infrastructure, the construction of six asphalt tennis courts, fencing, lighting, drainage and related items.

Jack Adams Tennis Center is the home of the award winning Courting Kids Junior Tennis Program, started by Delores Jackson, as well as the Westside Tennis Club which plays its home matches at the complex.

In 1927, two tennis courts were built at this location, known then as the “Municipal Recreation Unit,” a complex that included the football field and a baseball field. In 1938 The Works Project Administration (WPA) built 4 clay courts, bringing the city-wide tennis court inventory to 9. In the 1950’s the courts were repaved and in 1976, they were named in honor of former Recreation Director Jack Adams upon his retirement from the city. Over the years since, the City has made other improvements including new lights, rebuilding the upper courts, and renovation of the restroom building, in addition to routine maintenance activities, which include recoating the courts approximately every 6 years.
