Forsyth County Parks & Recreation Racket Sport Facility Survey
Forsyth County Parks and Recreation is conducting a survey to provide interested parties an opportunity to give input regarding the Racket Sport Facilities at Tanglewood and other Forsyth County Parks. The lease to operate the tennis facilities at Tanglewood Park has expired. There are alternative options for the County to consider for these facilities moving forward. Please see the listed options below.
Option 1 – This option is to continue the status quo. A Request For Qualifications (RFQ) would be developed and advertised where interested tennis facility operators can respond. County staff would review the RFQ’s received and negotiate with a vendor deemed to have the best program and to be the most qualified to successfully operate the 4 hard courts and 6 soft courts.
Option 2 – A tennis vendor would not be acquired. Instead, the 6 soft courts would be converted to 6 additional tennis hard courts. All Tanglewood tennis courts would become open to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis and at no cost beyond the $2 Tanglewood Park drive-in admission fee.
Option 3 – A tennis vendor would not be acquired. Instead, the 6 soft courts would be converted to 10 pickleball hard courts. All of the courts at Tanglewood—tennis and pickleball— would become open to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis and at no cost beyond the $2 Tanglewood Park drive-in admission fee. (This option replaces a County Commissioner-authorized pickleball court development project that would be located at Joanie Moser Park in Lewisville.)
This survey will take approximately 5 minutes to complete and can be accessed using the buttons below:
