Work has begun on the two new platform tennis courts at the Manklin Meadows Racquet Sports Complex! Excitement grows as the Ocean Pines Association begins an expansion project at the Manklin Meadows Racquet Sports Complex this week. A proposal of two additional platform tennis courts has been approved by the Board of Directors in Ocean Pines.
At a July 28 Regular Board Meeting, Board Director Doug Parks moved to accept the recommendation of Total Platform Tennis, an Ohio-based platform tennis court construction company. Each Board member was in favor after Board Director Dave Stevens seconded the motion.
Total Platform Tennis will construct and install two new courts at the sports complex, located at 11143 Manklin Creek Road, for $93,800.
In a Court Addition Estimate presentation, Facility Manager Kevin Layfield stated, “Site work, concrete piers and county permits are going to be completed by Ocean Pines Public Works.” He went on to say, “Total Platform Tennis can get us on the schedule to have courts completed within 6 months of signing the contract. The start date will be dependent upon completion of grade, pad and piers.”
