The Wimberley city council at its Jan. 17 meeting approved a plan for a partnership between the city and the Wimberley Independent School District to construct six tennis courts at Blue Hole Regional Park.
Under the approved plan, the city and WISD would split the estimated $450,000 cost of constructing the courts. Once built, the city will be responsible for operating and maintaining the tennis courts. Funding for the WISD’s share of the proposed partnership will be included in an upcoming bond issue, while the city’s share will come from donations and grants secured by the city and Friends of Blue Hole.
The need for additional WISD tennis courts was one of several facility needs recently identified by WISD’s bond steering committee that is developing a technology and facility bond issue to present to WISD voters in May. Currently, WISD operates and maintains six tennis courts that are available for school and community use.
