The voter-approved improvements to the Apex Tennis Center are now underway: renovating the eight outdoor courts with post tension surfaces, adding new lights and fences, and adding four new indoor courts and controlled access to all areas of the Apex Tennis Center.
During the construction process, the Apex Tennis Center outdoor courts are closed but we’ll offer the full range of tennis activities by making use of the other tennis courts throughout the district, and our building remains open during business hours for stringing, pro shop sales and general info. The planned reopening of the outdoor courts is scheduled for late summer, with a date to be announced later. For questions about programs, leagues, and alternative courts, please contact Michele at 303.420.1210 or MicheleC@ApexPRD.org.
