Construction at MLK Tennis Courts Extended for Regrading

Post Date:04/26/2019 2:30 PM

Renovations to the five tennis courts at MLK Park will take longer than expected after City contractor Maggiora & Ghilotti, Inc. discovered that the entire subgrade beneath the courts will require regrading and compacting. In the original plans, only the portion of the courts damaged by tree roots was to have been regraded. 

The current estimate is that the courts will be ready to reopen in June 2019. Construction will now require the removal of the entire existing court surface before the site can be resurfaced. In addition to the new court surface, the completed project will include new posts and nets, a new van-accessible parking stall on Coloma Street, and a new accessible pathway to the courts.

Until the MLK courts are ready, local tennis players are encouraged to use the three lighted courts at Marinship Park. The Parks and Recreation Department has worked with its instructors to reduce their court time so that there will be more availability for the public. All three courts are currently open from sunrise to 10:00 p.m., with the exception of the following lesson times:
  • Monday to Friday, 3:00 to 6:00 p.m.: Youth lessons on two of the courts; students may be using a third court but will move if members of the public would like to play
  • Tuesday, 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.: Adult lessons on one court
  • Thursday and Friday, 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.: Youth lessons on one court
  • Saturday, 8:00 to 10:00 a.m.: Adult doubles on all courts
Any questions about the renovations to the MLK tennis courts or the court schedule at Marinship Park may be directed to Parks and Recreation Director Mike Langford at mlangford@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4126.
