Douglas County renews contract for Zephyr Cove tennis courts

Staff Report

This month the Zephyr Cove Tennis Club Foundation begins its second five-year contract with Douglas County. The Douglas County Board of Commissioners on Oct. 18 unanimously voted to approve the contract.

“We are very pleased to be partnered with the Zephyr Cove Tennis Club Foundation for the operation of the Zephyr Cove Park tennis courts. The Zephyr Cove Tennis Club Foundation provides the highest level of service to our visitors and residents,” said Scott Morgan, director of Community Services for the county. “The Zephyr Cove Tennis Club Foundation has been a true recreational enhancement to our community.”

He added what the foundation has done is to make the playing experience “among the best in Northern Nevada.”

The foundation, which is run by an all-volunteer board of directors, is responsible for the daily maintenance of the courts, hosting events for members and others and hiring a pro to provide instruction.

Long-term goals include developing more courts and possibly covering one or more of them.

“I would have never guessed that the simple desire to have a real bathroom would have led to what the board, members and county have created,” Carolyn Wright, president of ZCTCF, said. “We owe a great deal of thanks and gratitude to the library personnel for being willing to share their restrooms and to give up some of their space for our pro shop. Additional appreciation goes to the staff of the county who have tirelessly worked with us to enhance these public facilities for players and the broader community.”
