Smart business plan helps to create Colorado tennis center

For anyone who loves tennis, Louisville, Colorado, may be the next hot spot to play. If all of the transactions go through smoothly, sometime next year the city may be home to the state's largest tennis club. The business plan includes 25 indoor and outdoor tennis courts, six smaller courts for children, a clubhouse and a highly qualified team of professional coaches and trainers. The facility will be on a 13-plus acre parcel of land that the Rocky Mountain Tennis Center purchased last year. The site is located on the northeast corner of West Dillon Road and South 96th Street. Earlier in November, the city council gave its preliminary approval of the project. It is now hoped that final approval will come in the spring.
