Local officials and members of the Owensboro-Daviess County Tennis Association broke ground Friday on a new tennis facility.

The $3.7 million indoor and outdoor complex is being built at Shifley Park.

The indoor facility’s large windows will allow more natural lighting and help cut utility costs.

Tennis association officials say the project is a win for the community and the region, “We will be able to host larger state tournaments and people always love to come to Owensboro from the feedback I get, so we’re looking forward to being able to host more events in the tennis area,” said Phil Clark, Owensboro-Daviess County Tennis Association.

The city of Owensboro hopes to have the tennis facility ready for play before the end of the year.
