Court 2 on Coast Union’s tennis court facility was resurfaced last week to the tune of $5,500, and as it does with each resurfacing project, the Cambria Tennis Club picked up the tab.

In its agreement with the Coast Unified School District, the club pays for all maintenance on the courts, in return for access to them when the school’s tennis teams are not using them.

Club treasurer Lois Garney said the group’s goal is to resurface one court each year. Last year, Court 1 was resurfaced. Members pay dues ($45 a year), and the club has fundraisers to cover the maintenance costs.

The courts have a “drop-in” day on Saturdays (a feature that began in 1991), when courts are open to all players “at any level” from 9 to 11 a.m., Garney said.

“Anybody at any level can come and play on the first two courts,” Garney explained.
