New tennis courts under construction in Negaunee

A project is underway to build eight new tennis courts and a storage facility on Negaunee High School’s campus, near the swimming pool. In addition to the new courts, the $500,000 sinking fund project also includes removing the old courts near the football field in order to expand the football team’s practice field. Negaunee Public Schools superintendent Jim Derocher said they expect the project to be completed by the second week in August, so that the new courts can be used for girls tennis season this fall.
