CCTC Close to Reaching Goal!

IMG_0873In 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.

You can be part of this exciting project by making your donation to the CORTA/Expansion Project by going online to http://www. CORTA.org,  by sending to CORTA – P.O. Box 8236 Columbus, GA 31908,  or by calling the CORTA office at (706) 317-4136 for more information or to get help with your gift. Be part of the action TODAY!

Get out on the courts, take some lessons, join a team ……. enjoy tennis at its finest at a world class facility that is only going to get better!  The collaborative CCTC project is certainly a “Sign, sign – everywhere a Sign” — of great things happening right here in Columbus, GA.

 

About Ruthie Curtis

About Ruthie I am a real estate agent in Columbus, GA and love my “job.” I enjoy being associated with the professionals at Bickerstaff Parham Real Estate and the folks that I come in contact with each and every day. I basically just love houses and all that is associated with them. It is so rewarding to help buyers and sellers reach their goals and to be a part of the process that makes it happen. I especially love gardens and how they can work to improve a property both in aesthetics and function. As a Master Gardener, I feel that I can add another dimension to the home buying and selling process. Partnered with my love of creatively doing the “what if we” changes to houses and my attention to detail, I can offer my clients a well-rounded approach to meeting their real estate needs while having some fun along the way. I have lived in Columbus for the past 25 years and have been actively involved in the community. My involvements include being the 1996 Race Director for the Steeplechase at Callaway Gardens; a past board member of Girls,Inc and the Columbus Regional Tennis Association (CORTA); a board member of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, the Columbus Botanical Garden, the Chattahoochee Valley Camellia Society, and is a member of the Women’s Reading Club of Columbus and the Overdue Book Club. I am a member of St. Luke United Methodist Church where I serve on the Altar Guild.photo (10) I am a UGA Bulldawg – having grown up in Athens and attended the University of Georgia where I received a BA degree in Advertising. I have two daughters, two great son-in-laws, five grandchildren and a Jack Russell Terrier named Jasper. I live in the historic Overlook area in Columbus where I recently purchased an older home and enjoyed the experience of putting my creative knowledge and skills to work!
