Tennis, anyone?

Eagles tennis players are taking to a new court across town. UWL is partnering with the City of La Crosse, Coulee Region Tennis Association, and La Crosse Aquinas Catholic Schools in creating a community tennis complex. The 19 tennis court site at Green Island includes 13 outdoor courts and six inside a year-round dome. The $1.3 million outdoor courts (above) were completed last September with lights to be installed in the future. Construction of the $2 million indoor courts is set for 2022. Fundraising continues. Discover more at: couleeregiontennis.com/green-island-park-projectdonation.cfm
