We envision three phases to this expansion:
Phase 1 will be the construction of the two courts. In fall 2021, we received approval for this project from the Village of Winnetka. The WPD initial budget is $390,000 for Phase 1 and WPTC is tasked with raising 100% of this amount.
Phase 2 will be the construction of the decking and grill area with a proposed firepit. A utility easement with a third-party Cell Tower company will need to be addressed before we begin construction of Phase 2.
Phase 3 will be an expansion of our Hut. With a total of eight courts and an increase in membership, we expect we will need to expand the hut. Final designs and fundraising for the hut expansion will occur at a future date.
Member and architect John Swierk has developed a Master Plan for our new platform tennis complex at Winnetka.
Please contact Colin Cross if you have any questions about this expansion and fundraising initiative.
