If you’ve been through Bangor High School since classes ended in June, you may have noticed a huge project next to the softball field. The school department invested approximately $1 million in replacing and expanding the high school’s tennis courts.
According to Ray Phinney, director of communications for the Bangor school department, the 4 courts were not sufficient to host tennis matches and tournaments, given their condition and the fact that there were only 4 courts.
Bangor did not host any tennis matches in the spring of 2022.
They are doing major earthworks and will continue into the fall. They will wait until spring 2023 and will sink the courts after the spring thaw.
Unfortunately, the Bangor tennis teams will not be able to play in high school next spring. They will practice at the Little City and Mansfield Park tennis courts under an agreement with the Bangor Parks and Recreation Department.
The planned total of $1 million includes fencing, preparatory work and the installation of tennis courts. Funding is within the Bangor School Department’s capital budget.
