Prefer tennis at night? Tucker is serving up new lighted courts

The Tucker City Council voted Monday to spend $97,000 on lights at the Henderson Park tennis courts.

The lights are expected to be installed by the firm West Georgia Lighting by the summer, the city said in a statement.

“Our tennis courts get as much use as just about any amenity in our parks system and one of the constant things we’ve heard since assuming responsibility for the parks is that folks want to be able to play tennis after dusk,” Tucker Parks and Recreation Director Rip Robertson said in the statement.

The four tennis courts were renovated by DeKalb County in 2017.

The new lights will be paid for by SPLOST funds that were approved by DeKalb voters in 2017, the city said.
