What We're Doing

The Stillwater City Council budgeted $400,000 to build a tennis complex at the former site of Hamilton Field in Couch Park. This is a joint effort between the City of Stillwater and the Stillwater Tennis Association (STA).

Overview: STA representatives have met with city staff and Studio Architecture to create a design for the courts, with a goal to build six courts in the finished project. The existing fieldhouse will be remodeled later in the project.

The remodeling of the courts will include junior court lines for younger players.
