Clarksville Athletic Complex

Clarksville Tennis Association

CommentaryClarksville, TN – It is very disappointing that no new tennis courts are included in these plans! 

It should be an embarrassment to the City of Clarksville that we have only 8 public tennis courts!  Cities half the population of ours have much better and more plentiful tennis facilities.

The original plan for this athletic complex, presented by then-Mayor Kim McMillan, included 29 tennis courts and an indoor tennis facility (see above).

Tennis is a sport that can be enjoyed for a lifetime.  It is inexpensive, provides great exercise, enjoyment, and does not require getting a team together to play. 

All anyone needs is another person and a $2.00-can of tennis balls to get plenty of exercise and enjoyment if a tennis court is available.

The city of Clarksville would do a great service to our community by providing more tennis facilities and placing a greater emphasis on maintaining the only ones we have.
