Roswell ten­nis com­plex planned as des­ti­na­tion

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - COUNTY BY COUNTY -

A fam­ily foun­da­tion plans to build a sprawl­ing mul­ti­mil­lion-dol­lar ten­nis com­plex in Roswell, in­clud­ing the largest con­cen­tra­tion of clay courts in the na­tion.

The pro­posed An­gela Krause Ten­nis, Pick­le­ball and Fit­ness Cen­ter at Roswell’s Big Creek Park will fea­ture more than 135 ten­nis courts, in­clud­ing 80 clay courts and an in­door fa­cil­ity. The proj- ect will cost up to $50 million.

The planned 60-acre com­plex along Old Alabama Road will be de­signed for not only lo­cal play­ers but as an in­ter­na­tional des­ti­na­tion for tour­na­ments, project sup­port­ers say.

The At­lanta area is con­sid­ered the largest league ten­nis com­mu­nity in the coun­try, and ac­cord­ing to fig­ures from the city of Roswell, some 75,000 ac­tive play­ers live in a 10-mile ra­dius of the city.
