Construction is expected to start in the coming weeks on two new lighted tennis courts at Pleasanton Tennis and Community Park after the City Council recently signed off on more than $900,000 in contracts to move the project forward.

Great news for tennis players like myself! I know the community thinks there are enough courts at the tennis park already, but with all the kids programs, lessons, clinics, USTA teams/matches happening there - rarely are courts available for people outside of these programs who are playing for exercise, fun and love of the game. NOW I just need to figure out how to lead the efforts to open up the Foothill High School courts to the public! we can play for "free" there, not have to make reservations and there would be no time restrictions if people aren't waiting. Hoping my $11K property taxes a year with no kids in schools is worth a say. Wish me luck!

Wow Dana T - so glad having more unused courts at the expense of all Ptown residents makes you happy. Those courts are WAY underused - I take pics of empty courts all the time, and send to my daughter in law in SF - we laugh at the pitiful pettiness of Pleasanton. If there's one day there is not a court available (and there are not many) - well heck, let's build more. Money is no object. With the horses leaving Pleasanton - maybe you can pave the racetrack too! Thanks for reminding me that yes - we do need to retire elsewhere - this place is incredibly boring. love how the city went along with the protesting residents, just to jack up the price. Makes them feel good to spend our money.

Nice of the city to approve a contract for building those not needed tennis courts at a cost of more than double the cost of their previous attempt to build not needed tennis courts less than a year ago, INFLATION??? And those poor city engineers being overworked, it's good we are willing to spend another $56,880 to hire an outside firm to do their work, I guess when the going gets tough the taxpayers will bail out the city employees!

@no more ptown for me - Yes the courts are mostly empty midday when most people are working. I know I work 8:30-5:30 and can't play until 5:30/6 when all the courts are already booked for kids programs, lessons, clinics, USTA teams/matches. So hoping extra courts will allow me to play more after work and on wknds - when they are full. I know b/c I can't ever book the same day I am ready to play. And the park courts are mostly full of players and instructors. Maybe you could try tennis - it's a great activity for all ages! And I never mentioned any horses - just tennis for me!
