In 2006, CORTA purchased 6.78 acres adjacent to Cooper Creek Tennis Center in hopes of building more courts. The long-awaited CCTC expansion project has almost reached its goal! CORTA (Columbus Regional Tennis Association), CSU (Columbus State University) and the Columbus Consolidated Government (City) have joined forces to raise $9.2 million to expand the CCTC. According to the folks at CORTA today, the project is $100,000 from reaching this goal!! Quite a feat in today’s uncertain economic times. A true testament to the support of the public and private sectors of our community to make CCTC one of the preeminent public tennis facilities in the nation as well as what will likely become the finest Division I tennis complex in the country.
With an August 2016 completion date, the new complex will include 12 hard courts, 9 clay courts, and 4 – 60′ Quick Start courts. Once completed, CSU will relocate their nationally ranked varsity tennis programs to the facility. The expansion project will also greatly enhance CORTA’s ability to accommodate its fast growing league usage, as well as hosting local, regional and national tennis tournaments that will have a significant economic impact on our community.
