New Tennis Courts Ready to Serve

SPANGDAHLEM AIR BASE, Germany -- The tennis courts located near the base housing office are new and improved and now available for use.

The courts were started earlier this summer and completed in only three months. They have new drain lines, frost protection, an asphalt base, synthetic flooring, and new posts and nets.

"These refurbished tennis courts are another great example of the quality-of-life initiatives the 52nd Mission Support Group delivers to the Spangdahlem community,” said Col. Steven Zubowicz, 52nd MSG commander.

The previous tennis courts were rundown, the surface was deteriorating, and the nets did not meet regulations. The construction, which was directed by the 52nd Civil Engineer Squadron, comes just in time for the start of a new school year.

"This effort was an important piece in a larger initiative to move Bitburg High School to Spangdahlem,” Zubowicz said. “Ultimately, this project was completed to give the high school the capacity they need to practice and host tennis matches. However, these tennis courts also benefit our housing residents and provide our Airmen with an alternative method for physical fitness."
