The Richard B. Harrison Tennis Court should be ready for play in about two months.
On Friday, July 6, a crew from Raleigh Paving laid asphalt on the new court.
“It will need to cool for about 30 days before lines are painted and the fencing installed,” said Selma Parks and Recreation Director Joe Carter. “There will also be a connecting path from the building and a pad installed for bleachers.”
The project cost $98,000, said Carter.
“There were three tennis organizations that awarded grants to pay for half the installation costs,” said Carter. “The town paid the other half.”
