TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

As first reported here on TSD, there has been significant concern about the future of the historic Bellevue State Park tennis facility after no bidders responded to an initial RFP to manage the site. Good news arrived last week for northern Delaware tennis players with the announcement that local professional Simon Peppiatt has been awarded the contract and plans to have the courts up and running by the third week in April.

 

“We’re really looking forward to restoring this wonderful facility and making it once again the preeminent community tennis center in northern Delaware,” Peppiatt told us.

 

Peppiatt said he expects to have a reinvigorated program of lessons for all levels, interclub and USTA league play and junior tournaments and team tennis. He also says he’ll have a working pro shop and hopes to bring back some traditional events like “Breakfast at Wimbledon.” Memberships are again available for individuals, families and juniors.

 

A new phone number, website and Facebook page will soon be available but for now, Peppiatt asks anyone with questions to contact him at simonpeppiatt@gmail.com or 610-842-6273.
