Cuyahoga Falls -- The Woodridge Board of Education approved a measure to repair the district's tennis courts on June 21.

The Board passed a resolution to repair the courts between Woodridge Middle School and the Board's administration office.

The courts were last repaired in 2010, according to Treasurer Tom Morehouse. The tennis courts have been locked because of uneven surface dips, ripples, cracks and worn areas that make the courts unsafe, he said.

The City of Cuyahoga Falls Parks and Recreation Department is paying $50,000 of the $187,000 total for the repairs, which will take place from July to September this year. Woodridge will pay the remaining $137,000 from either the general fund or permanent improvement fund, according to Morehouse.

The tennis teams will play away matches at the beginning of the fall school year and alternate courts will be used for practice.

Although the schools have priority for using the tennis courts, they are open to the community.

The next scheduled meeting is July 18 at the Administration Building.
