Tennis Anyone?

We saw this on Free Market via the Sun. The 600-member strong Howard County Tennis Patrons wants to build a regional tennis center at a proposed Troy Hill regional park in Elkridge.

Art Tollick, who heads the group, told the Sun the center would have 11 indoor courts, 19 outdoors, and stadium seating for 2,000 spectators -- making it one of the largest in the mid-Atlantic.

If the deal goes through, the county would lease the land to the tennis group. Tollick's group would raise construction funds and pay off the debt through fees charged to players, he said. The $200,000 already raised and about $300,000 more hoped to be raised would go for planning and engineering costs.
